Cam'ron & Kanye West - That 1970s Heroin Flow

Cam'ron and Kanye West have only given us a glimpse of what they'd be capable of creating as a full-fledged duo. Tracks like "Down and Out", "Dead or Alive" and "Champions" are emblematic of what was so great about Roc-A-Fella Records in the first half of the aughts. I really miss those days. This pairing of the finest from Chi-Town and Harlem - both signed to the same label at the time - demonstrated one of the great, oft-overlooked emcee/producer chemistries in recent memory. That 1970s Heroin Flow highlights the magic we can only dream of getting back again one day. Keep hope alive. Enjoy... and turn it up!!
