Beginning his musical career in his teens in mid-1990’s he has worked with Big L, Mase and his cousin Bloodshed. The group was called Children of the Corn. However, soon after the death of his cousin Bloodshed and Big L, Camron continued his music career solo. A radical change in his career came when he met Notorious B.I.G who made Camron sign a deal with Entertainment label which was distributed by Epic Records.

This gave him global recognition. This debut album was titled ‘Confessions of Fire’, that brought him popularity in the mainstream.

The Recording Industry Association of Asia deemed this as Gold. His third studio album ‘Come Home With Me’ was declared a Platinum.
Later in 2005, he dissolved Diplomat Records, his record label from the Rock-a Fella records. He did this owing to the certain business disagreements and signed with Asylum Records as his distributors. It was then that Killa Season was released which was his fifth studio album. In fact, this also marked as his debut in screenwriting and acting as Killa Season was also released as a film where he starred as the main actor.
After a gap of few years due to his mother’s death, he came back in 2009 with an album called Crime Pays, which again created a storm on the Billboard Charts and was on number 3. It is said that now he is working on his next album named after his fourth one Purple Haze. This one will be known as Purple Haze 2.
