's sophomore full length, S.D.E
. (Sports, Drugs and Entertainment), is packed with guest star appearances and stories of urban ills and his life as a former basketball player. Cam'ron
receives help from friends like Destiny's Child, Old Dirty Bastard, and producer, Prodigy
. Following in their foot steps, Cam'ron
raps about common topics over catchy loops and hooks. Often, S.D.E
mirrors rap, when it was more reflective than intense, but quickly sinks back into the modern day ordinary. With S.D.E.
there is some obvious potential in the long run for this rapper. However, for now he is ideal for those that find themselves content with the down state of rap at the time of this album's release.
