This guy is probably the most under-rated and least publicized member of Dipset. His flow is sick though, he's easily one of the most lyrically impressive MC's around right now. I've been listening to his mixtapes The Yellow Tape and Mooga on a pretty constant basis lately, they're sick.

He may perhaps be best known for his freestyle battles:

I'd probably put .40 a little bit ahead of Cam and JR, who are both sick as well, but I haven't listened to enough by them to form a solid opinion.

I've had this latest J.R. album on my ipod for a couple of months but I just haven't got around to listening.

Cam just has a personality and definitive style that you don't hear in a lot of other rappers. It's kinda hard to explain, but I'd describe it as a sort of laid-back aggression. Plus, he has this really abstract tendency in his rhyming that reminds me of Ghostface a little bit.

BTW, do you have a link for either of those mixtapes? I couldn't find them on datpiff.

If you use PirateBay torrents, here's the links to those:

http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4104609/40_Cal_-_The_Yellow_Tape_(2008)_-_Rap

If not I could probably manage to upload them somewhere

yeah, i use college dorm internet, so i'm afraid to use torrents. megaupload etc though are usually fine. if you could that'd be awesome, i can upload some Cam'ron or something in return if you want.

For sure, I guess just put up whatever you think Cam's best is and I'll start uploading these

I haven't checked that one out yet. He releases so many tapes on a yearly basis, it's hard to keep up.

Anyway I just wanted to say that I'm noticing I used the word "sick" twice in the first post ITT. This forum must be getting to me. :(
