In 2004 Cam’ron released Purple Haze, an album which many critics feel contains his best work (I prefer its 2002 predecessor, Come Home With Me, instead, but Haze was tough in its own right too).
Now, twelve years later, Cam has been given the opportunity to commemorate the album in the best way possible.
Long-running monthly magazine High Times is reporting that Cam will help a lot of incoming college freshmen in the Fall with the impending release of his own strain of weed. Teaming with West Coast brand Chroncierge, Cam will be a part of a host of products tied to The Smoker’s Club Tour, which is currently underway with the likes of The Underachievers, G Herbo, and Smoke DZA.
Cam said getting into the branded weed game in California is the result of popular demand.
The Harlem rapper released the gold record Purple Haze on Roc-A-Fella in 2004 and has been asked about the strain ever since, though Purple Haze has since faded in New York’s weed scene, which is now dominated by New York City Sour Diesel.
Color was on the forefront of his mind, he said. A Cam’Ron strain could be purple or pink-hued, and potentially grape soda-flavored, Cam said. “I never smelled any of this till I came out here,” he marveled, as he considered the possibilities of crafting his own color and flavor of pot.
Get ready for a
hot summer high fall.
