There are many events in rap history that are either unknown or forgotten, from album releases to deaths to random ass events most of us can't even recall. As an attempt to remember those moments, Complex will share an event that helped shape hip-hop in a sometimes minor, sometimes major way. Join us as we look back on This Day in Rap History.
February 4, 1976
There are multiple reasons to love Cam'ron. You might appreciate his steez, appreciate his honesty, you might love Paid In Full, or you hate Bill O'Reilly. If none of that, you're a fan of his discography. Cam'ron paved the way for Dipset and changed the game during his time with Roc-A-Fella records and he's remained relevant throughout the years without losing an ounce of his audacious personality. His upcoming EP with A-Trak, Federal Reserve will drop this year and it's undeniably one of the most anticipated albums of 2014. Happy 38th birthday, Cam'ron. What would we ever do without you?
