Cam’ron got his start as a rapper early. The “Hey Ma” rapper rose to fame in Harlem at a young age for his ability to deliver ruthless bars seemingly to order. Now, Killer Cam has given fans a glimpse of those early days in a new Instagram post on Saturday.

In the video, a 19-year-old Cam’ron has been spitting in a cipher since March 1995. “Before DIPSET, IT WAS BBO then COC!!!” Cam wrote in the caption. “These are pictures in ST Nick PJ’s, these are the bars you get when you train with @rsvpmase #BigL #BloodShed and @therealherbmcgruff (in a good way) every week. I still wasn’t taking rapping seriously. It was a month after I got kicked out of college. I still thought I was going to the NBA. So I got an 8 ball to hold me over until I went back to school. I never went back in. The rapper promised there was more where those footage came from, writing, “I’ll post part 2 on Monday!!”

The video was taken three years before Cam’ron released his first single “Horse & Carriage”, a collaboration with Ma$e. Eventually, Cam’ron, Ma$e and their other Harlem friends, Big L and Bloodshed, formed Children of the Corn, a great rap group.

Ma$e and Cam have been jostling for the past few years. Earlier this month, Ma$ea admitted he regretted getting on bad terms with his old friend. A few days later, Ma$e posted a video of himself calling out the rapper, and it looks like their beef has now officially been crushed.

Keep your eyes on Cam’ron’s IG for more of these trips down memory lane. He is known to often post snapshots of his past with industry legends.
