Back in March, Cam’Ron debuted his new web series, Giles Investigations, where Killa Cam uses a Dateline-style investigative journalism format to look into the life of one his former customers, Face, who was an upcoming comedian-turned-drug-addict in the ’90s and ’00s.
After introducing us to Face in episode 1, the follow-up episode kicks off with Cam’Ron trying to see what Face would do for crack, eventually settling on break dancing and dodging an incoming car for $40. The whole reality is pretty depressing, but Cam’Ron said because Face is a comedian, it’s “automatically funny.” He spoke to The FADER:
“I want people to laugh, but I want people to get a message that this isn’t something that you should be doing. You see what it does to your life? You might be breakdancing in the project hallway for $11. It’s funny, but at the same time it’s also sad because this is a real life situation. You should have mixed emotions.”
I get it, but I still find it kind of hard to laugh. Watch Episode 2 below.
