Overview

On Come Home With Me, his eagerly anticipated third disc and his debut on Jay-Z's Roc-a-Fella Records, Cam'ron dives deep into the heaven and hell that is his native Harlem, New York. "If people watch music videos, they might think that Harlem is some giant amusement park where people in glitter suits dance around all day, " he says in his press bio. "...I want people to see that Harlem is still ghetto." The disc features the hot single "Oh Boy."

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Just when seemed as if everyone had forgotten about Cam'ron, he returned in 2002 as part of Jay-Z's industry-dominating Roc-a-Fella collective. If that wasn't reason enough to inspire curiosity, Cam'ron's lead single, "Oh Boy," blew up urban radio all summer. His rugged rapping and Just Blaze's soulful production made "Oh Boy" the huge success that it was, yet the joy of hearing Cam'ron on the radio again also had a bit to do with the revival. The Harlem rapper had fallen off the map after S.D.E., his poorly received album from two years earlier. Just two years before that, Cam'ron was one of the industry's most promising pop-rappers. His first album, Confessions of Fire, produced several singles, including his collaboration with Mase, "Horse & Carriage." However, 1998 felt like the distant past in 2002, and Cam'ron needed a big comeback after falling into obscurity during the interim. Come Home With Me is indeed that big comeback. Even though members of the Roc-a-Fella roster appear on only two songs -- "Welcome to New York City," featuring Jay-Z, and "The Roc (Just Fire)," featuring Memphis Bleek and Beanie Sigel -- Cam'ron doesn't really need the assistance here. He comes hard on most tracks, yet his muscle is complemented well by producer Just Blaze and his trademark sampling style. Just Blaze doesn't produce every track on this album, but he does provide the key moments: "Oh Boy" and "The Roc (Just Fire)." Overall, Cam'ron couldn't return with a stronger comeback album than this: he's affiliated with one of the industry's most successful labels, graced with a hot producer, and armed with a dynamite lead single.
Vibe - Noah Callahan-Bever
Between '98's crude Confessions of Fire and 2000's more refined S.D.E., Cam sharpened his songwriting skills and learned to walk the tightrope between popular and pop -- a balancing act he pulls off on Come Home With Me.

I think that Cam'ron is the best rapper in the world and I would like for everyone to go and buy his album. I highly recommend this album for your cd collection because it is excellent. Ever since Killa Cam hooked up with Rocafella his skills have been personafied and able to get their full shine. He will be even bigger than he was with his past two albums and now everyone will want to be like him. He will have everyone saying Oh Boy.

My man cam been reppin' ''The World'' since horse and carriage. It is all good that he linked wit' da Roc,but screw that. He hold his own. the jigga man probably didn't help. That's all dame dash. He is harlem too. Cam'ron is talented on the Mic and his style screams harlem at you. (no Homo) even if he was still signed to epic, he would be bumpin' in my system. His advance might not be as hot, but I respect him as a artist. Not a rich black kid. Killa keep doin' you. I'm on the lookout 4 dat diplomat's LP. tell jimmy- see you at sues playa.

Cam'ron Is back and better than ever. He never lost his fire for the game, but like he said...(people say I'm the best, just not promoted right). And with the ROC behind him that will explain why Cam is the best to come out of Harlem. The ROC is really doing it right now, with Jay, Bleek, Beans, Freeway, Oskino & Sparks, Chris & Neef and...Cam'ron, the ROC is a force to be reckoned with, period.

The boy has done it again people need to stop trying to deny his talent and fly style. This album is as good as any and definitely the hottest album recorded in '02 so get ready to hear alot more powerful music from cam and the dips.

Cam¿Ron ¿ Come Home With Me If you thought Cam¿s last albums were sick, then you best be prepared, even for those that thought Cam wasn¿t nice you definitely gonna eat your words when you peep his Roc-A-Fella debut. Cam like always comes real hard lyrically, and the production only serves to make this underrated star shine brighter. Check ¿Day reamin¿ and ¿live My life¿ with an ill sample of 2Pac¿s Ambitionz az a Ridah, ¿Welcome To New York City¿ with Jay-Z and Juelz, is definitely gonna be bumpin this summer, and of course we all heard the Just Blaze produced track ¿Oh Boy¿ and that is straight fire right there, keepin it gully. Cam is definitely a very underrated MC, MC being the key word. If you ever heard him freestyle you know the kid can definitely flow, he takes no prisoners and it definitely shows he¿s poetic like a Haiku. Even if you don¿t got his other albums which are also worth pickin gup you wont be dissapointed cuz he didn¿t miss a beat, in fact he picked up a couple. Peace.
