Camron, real name Ca,meron Ezike Giles, is a successful American hip hop artist. He is best known as de facto leader of two East Cost groups, The U.N. (abbreviation for Us Now) and The Diplomats. The U.N. was founded by Cameron in 2009, after the rapper had a conflict with one of The Diplomats’ members, Jim Jones. The Diplomats were active for nearly 10 years, since 1997. The original members of the group were Juelz Santana, Hell Rell, J.R. Writer, 40 Cal, Freekey Zekej, Jim Jones and of course, Camron. This hip hop band gained prominence in the early 2000s, after appearing on Camron’s album S.D.E and earned further recognition with the release of Come Home With Me. As for 2013, Camron net worth is estimated at $8 million.
Giles was born in Harlem, in 1976. He met his friend and future band-mate Jim Jones while attending Manhattan Centre for Science and Mathematics (MCSM). For those who have not heard much about this man, Jim Jones is not only a rapper, but also an actor. In addition to his work with The Diplomats, Jones has established a successful solo career and released six albums, such as On My Way to Church, Hustler’s P.
O.M.E and Capo. Due to the success of these records Jim’s fortune is slightly superior to Camron net worth. He holds capital and assets evaluated at $10 million. After graduation from high school Camron enrolled in college, but dropped out before the end of the first year. Following this, Cameron returned to his childhood neighborhood, Harlem. Back in the day the future millionaire used to earn extra cash by selling drugs in the streets.
Camron started his professional career in 1990s, performing with a hip hop band Children of the Corn. The group consisted of Giles and his fellow neighborhood rappers, Mase, Bloodshed and Big L. Bloodshed, who was also Camron’s cousin and one of his closest friends, died in a car crash in 1997. Following this accident the remaining rappers decided to go separate ways. Mase was soon signed to Bad Boy Records and managed to build a moderately successful career as a hip hop recording artist. The fate waiting for Big L. was tragic: in 1977 the rapper was murdered.
Camron net worth started to grow in the late 1990s, when the future millionaire was introduced to Christopher George Latore Wallace, better known as Notorious B.I.G. With some help from this rapper Giles landed a deal with Untertainment label, led by Lance Rivera. In 1998 Camron released his debut studio album, entitled Confessions of Fire. Due to the success of such singles as “Feels Good” (ft. Usher) and “Horse and Carriage” (ft. Mase), the album peaked at No. 6 on Billboard 200 and went on to sell over 500 thousand copies. Following this breakthrough Camron net worth shot to the stars.
