Cam Groves is an emcee from Maine known for his clever wordplay and relatable subject matter. As he once rapped in 2009, to sum himself up: “Fast food / Pabst Blue / Cam Groves: That’s Who.” Cam also isn’t pretending to be anything he’s not, like some emcees, as evidenced by his line that he’s “about as gangster as a gangster having a web site.”
Cam wrote his first rhymes during high school, free-styling with friends during study hall sessions and in smoky cars on the weekends. Post-high school, he continued his rap efforts with hometown companion Spose. He learned the ways of recording while working on a guest verse for the song “John Madden,” on Spose’s 2007 self-released debut album PREPOSTEROUSLY DANK.
Cam made his true recording debut in the summer of 2009, when the Spose and Cam Groves mixtape “We Smoked it All” came out. The release held steadily at the top of the Bull Moose Music / Portland Phoenix “Local Music Charts” for months. Groves emerged onto Portland’s blossoming rap scene while performing tracks from the mixtape on a local scale. Later, as Spose’s hype man, Cam expanded his experience to the national level in 2010 when he rocked the same stages as hiphop and pop music’s heavy hitters: Brother Ali, Sean Price, Grieves, Wiz Khalifa, Weezer, The New Boyz, B.o.B, and Mike Posner.
In March of 2011 Cam dropped his first LP entitled "Hope Something Cool Happens" on Preposterously Dank Entertainment. Which hit number one on local charts for four strait weeks. "Hope Something Cool Happens" local success was then noted in Rollingstone Magazine, March 31, 2011. Since then He has dropped two other full legnth LPs, 'Grovenistic' (2012) ans self produced album 'Backwoods & Bitches' (2013).
After the release of 'Backwoods & Bitches' Cam took part in two national tours with the Preposterously Dank label doing shows in just about every state. Cam is currently working on his forth album, "Mr. Nice Guy".
