Cam’ron recently linked with Complex for a cover story on him and producer A- Trak. The two are planning to release a joint effort titled, “Federal Reserve EP“. The two discussed details of the project and what it was like collaborating for the first time.
“This is something brand-new to me,” Cam’ron says in an upcoming Complex cover story. “I didn’t even know nothing about this world or this culture. [Miss Info] mentioned he was one of the biggest people to do it. So when Dame called me and said we should do an EP together, I was like, ‘Let’s do it. Sounds good.'”
“I think the first time they came over I was cooking lamb and steak and all types of stuff,” Cam says. “I don’t like to have sessions where everybody’s just sitting in the studio waiting. The studio’s in my crib, so I would cook some lamb, then go lay a verse, then come back upstairs and cook some steak and lay a verse, then come back upstairs and cook some shrimp and lay a verse—so we was just cooking and recording all night. It was a pretty cool atmosphere for me.”
A – Trak went on to explain how precise Cam’ron was throughout the process.
“I remember Cam was real vocal about that,” A-Trak says. “[Cam was] like, ‘Look, we’re going to record. We’re going to do songs. But also, we’re going to chill, cook some lamb, and then it becomes easier to connect musically.’ One thing that’s cool is that this is all centered around music.”
