  1. Cam's flow is a thing of beauty.
  2. Purple Haze is such a twisted take on gangsta that it has to be heard to be believed.
  3. Once again, Cam proves why he is hip-hop's best guilty pleasure. [17 Dec 2004, p.84]
  4. Intricacy and economy rarely cohabitate in a rapper's flow, but Cam is a model of both, packing an obscene number of rhyming syllables into each line, and sustaining the effect for lengthy runs.
  5. Certainly confirms him as one of hip-hop's most gifted wordsmiths. [8 Jan 2005, p.45]
  6. Evenly divided between strong and weak tracks.
  7. Purple Haze lumbers drearily through a sea of gangsta-rap clich├ęs.

    cams deliverance here lacks the enthusiasm it had on his 1st 3 albums, which why alotta ppl (not including me) kina hate on him. regardless, hes still got a good rhyming scheme, and overall i gotta say it was a fun album. Expand
