Cam’ron samples Cyndi Lauper’s 1983 classic song “Time After Time” for his drug game ode, “Dime After Dime.” The Diplomats leader just released a video for the song, which follows the song’s theme.
Directed by PocketDenimRay, the clip find Cam back in his old stomping grounds where he details his exploits as a hustler on the Harlem streets. “Lennox Terrace was my stash house / Right by the bath house / Moving yey twice a day / Had them bringing cash out,” he raps, adding, “Hefty bags / Nah, they wasn’t bringing trash out / Like that posse out in Brooklyn / We would mash out.”
Sen City sings the hook, as he laments for the fiends who keep coming back for more because their addictions. Although it’s an ingenious flip by Killa Cam, Cyndi might frown on the song’s subject matter.
This isn’t the first time Cam’ron remixed a karaoke favorite. The 41-year-old rapper flipped Vanessa Carlton’s effervescent pop hit “A Thousand Miles” into a street banger, “10,000 Miles.”
