Camron’s S.D.E. Dropped 16 Years Ago: A Look Back

“On this day in Hip Hop history, Harlem legend Cam’ron released his sophomore LP Sports, Drugs, and Entertainment or S.D.E. for short. Coming off of a gold certified, chart placing debut, S.D.E takes a slightly more hardcore gangster approach than Confessions of Fire. Originally titled The Rough, Rough, Rough Album, S.D.E. puts a more blatant focus on Cam’s criminality rather than lyrical prowess. By no means is that to say Cam is sub par on this LP, in fact S.D.E. proves the opposite.”
