Shout out Harlem’s own Cam’ron for not only having bars and style, but emotional range. In a beautifully sentimental post dedicated to his ex and mother of his son, the rapper reflects on his teenage love that blossomed in the streets of Harlem.  

The post tells the story of how Killa Cam met his first love Toy in seventh grade, long before his rise to fame. As he chronicles their years together, he credits Toy for taking care of him, teaching him how to dress (a major nod from the style icon), and getting her own education while taking care of their son. Cam admits he was the cause of their eventual split, and thanks Toy for “having my back and being the disciplinary in our sons life.”

The pair's son recently graduated from high school and was awarded several academic scholarships. The rapper credits his son’s success to Toy, not only thanking her in this heartwarming Instagram post, but gifting her a brand new Range Rover Velar in honor of the occasion. “Even though we haven’t been together in over a decade. Ur still my family.. love ya!” Cam’ron concludes.

A Eastside story: so the first week When I got to 7th grade, I seen this girl that I automatically loved. She was cute, had swag, and fly jewelry. I found out her name was Toy and she was a grade ahead of me. And she was tuff. I mean could beat up boys, take it to the guns etc. I was like... what kind of 8th grader is this?! 🤔.. Still I thought I would love for her to be my girlfriend. But I only had 2 pair of jeans, 3 shirts and 2 pair of sneakers. So that was a far fetched dream. But about 3 months into the school year she notice me and took a liking to me. For what?!.. I still don’t know🤷🏽‍♂️. Anyway. She became my girl. And she took care of me. Brought me clothes, sneakers, jewelry (Cuban links, gucci bracelets etc) and taught me how to have style. Being she lived on the eastside (of Harlem) I even moved to the eastside with my grandmom..so I could live close to her.. Fast forward.. When she became a junior in high school I noticed a big changed in her. She took school more serious and became a honor roll student. Went on to graduate from St. John’s, masters from Delaware st, and another masters back at St. John’s. And also the mother of my son.. We ended up breaking up when I turned about 26 (I think) because of my cheating, lying and trying to peruse a music career that she wanted nothing to do with. She wanted me to go to school and we live a family life. But she understood my vision but she wasn’t going to be a part of it. I just want to tell her thank you for having my back and being the disciplinary in our sons life. I didn’t have a father in my life so I could never tell my son no to anything. But because of her our son had 5 full academic scholarship offers.🙏🏾 and she hates social media. she’s doesn’t have a page etc. So I asked my son.. what kind of car u want for graduating? He said “dad I don’t want a car yet. After I get my associates degree then I’ll rock. But we should get mom a new car. She likes that new Range Rover velar.” I said “WORD!!” So that’s what we did.. But Toy you deserve to shine..at least for one day. Miss “respect my privacy”😂 Even though we haven’t been together in over a decade. Ur still my family.. love ya!
