G. Cam, born George Cameron, on, September 6, 1987, is a New York rapper, songwriter. Raised in Harlem, NY, Cam was a quiet kid, with no friends. He focused his attentions on the arts. His way to escape reality was through writing poetry and through that he developed his love for music. He started using his poems to spit lyrics and the neighborhood took notice. As he became familiar with Hip Hop artists like, Tupac, Nas, he ventured into song writing. His life became his motivation and inspiration.
In August of 2005, he went to North Carolina where he studied, Business Administration at Shaw University. Around that time he started taking his music career more serious. He started networking with people in the music industry and was offered a record deal with an independent label. Things were looking up for his career until, April of 2006. Cam received a call that would change his life; his father was murdered. Alone, confused, and with no direction, life had to be faced head on. There has still been no arrest, leads, in his father’s murder case.
In May of 2006, G. Cam was home for good residing with his mother and siblings. He continued to work on music and recorded his first single, “Get Money.” The single was featured on an Unsigned Hype Mixtape, hosted by DJ Bedtyme 357. By this time he realized that music was what he wanted to pursue as a full-time career. He purchased studio equipment, and began to engineer his own tracks.
G. Cam has continued to work on his music, gaining him the attention of an Atlantic Record A&R, a venture that taught him a lot about the industry. He is now working with a new team, a new outlook, and new material. His music is being played across the college market, with the influence of Nasty Nes of Rap Attack Live. He was also chosen to appear in Faces in Crowd Showcase at S.O.B.’s. With an incredibly solid mixtape released under his belt (The Psycho), and upcoming LP, Paranoid, G Cam is steadily marching the path paved by his NY predecessors, with no signs of stopping where the sidewalk ends.
