FACT Focus is a brand new mix series.

Regular FACT readers may have noticed that occasionally, to accompany a large feature or list, the author has provided a mix summarizing the article in handy-to-absorb MP3 format. Well, we’ve decided to flesh this out into a series.

Episodes of FACT Focus will, umm, focus on a specific artist, label, scene or sound. The mixes won’t be weekly, but they’ll always go the extra mile in terms of highlighting hidden classics and mapping-out specific eras or sounds.

This week, FACT’s Son Raw dives into his collection of mixtapes to provide a bumper summary of Harlem’s Cam’ron. Now, anyone who was listening to rap in the early 00s will no doubt already be familiar with NYC supergroup The Diplomats (Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, Freekey Zekey and others), and have probably spun Purple Haze, but Son Raw’s mix goes deep and gets to the heart of what we love about not only Killa Cam, but New York City.

Stream the mix below via Mixcloud or download via WeTransfer.
