    God bless Cam’ron. The Diplomats head honcho flipped pop hit Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” into a street banger in March. Now he’s back with his newest creation “Dime After Dime,” which samples Cyndi Lauper’s 1980s classic “Time After Time.” It’s truly a work of art how Killa Cam turns a song that’s been used in every prom situation in a coming-of-age film into a street ballad. It’s masterful.

    In the “Dime After Dime” video, Cam’ron is seen retelling his time as a drug dealer in his early years. Sen City does a great job on the hook and the visual is directed by PocketDenimRay. “Broads get snatched up/Dudes get clapped up/The whole neighborhood trapped up,” croons Cam. Try not to shed a thug tear when you listen to this record.

    The veteran MC is also planning to release his Killa Season 2 album this year, so The Program will serve as a prelude of what’s to come. Watch “Dime After Dime” video below.
