Dipset’s Cam’ron is using the end of the decade to bring some of his best music back. Fresh off the release of his latest album Purple Haze 2, the veteran rapper dropped a video for his single “Losing Weight 3.”
Although “Losing Weight 3” is a new track, the single is a revamped version of his 2000 song “Losing Weight” featuring Prodigy. On the original song, Cam and Prodigy traded bars about the stresses of street life. Now, Cam’ron raps alone, shouting out Hip Hop pioneers who paved the way for him before they each passed away.
The hook and sample of “Losing Weight 3” are the same as the 2000 version, but the track is slowed down, making the new song sound more sober than its predecessor. This time around, Killa Cam rhymes about leaving his old life behind.
“Losing Weight 3” appears on Cam’s Purple Haze 2. The album, which includes guest features from artists such as Max B and Jim Jones, is a sequel to his memorable 2004 album Purple Haze.
