The Campus Activities Board at Frostburg State University will present the rap artist Cam'ron for its annual Spring Concert on Saturday, April 12, at 8 p.m. in the Cordts Physical Education Center Main Arena.
In his 23 years, Cam'ron has gone from high school All-American point guard to Harlem drug dealer to one of hip-hop's brightest new stars. Offered university scholarships from the likes of Duke, Syracuse and North Carolina, he was unable to enroll in a Division I school, and instead enrolled in a small Texas college. Unsatisfied, he returned to his native Harlem and began hustling.
Cam'ron then turned to rap, entering the music scene with friend and fellow teammate Mase. The duo, known as Killa Cam and Murder Mase, eventually went their separate ways, but it was Mase who introduced Cam'ron to the late Notorious B.I.G. Biggie and his partner, Lance Rivera, were so impressed by Cam'ron's skills that they made him the first artist signed to their label, Untertainment Records. Cam'ron released his debut album, "Confessions of Fire," in July 1998. He is now signed with Roc-a-fella Records, and his most recent release is "Come Home With Me."
