I woke up this morning, and as usual opened the Macbook. NHL.com, then Facebook, then Grantland, reddit, the New York Times. Then Twitter – and caught something on my feed:

Cam to 9th

???

Being a fan of both artists, I had to open up that conversation. 9th Wonder eventually tweeted:

Happy Thursday everybody! I know mine will be, thanks to these two hip hoppers striking up twitter conversations. This is great.

You have an up-and-coming rapper, Cam Meekins, potentially pairing up with a top-notch producer. If they collaborate it won’t disappoint.

Meekins is a Massachusetts native who’s been rapping since high school. He has a couple of albums and mixtapes ( ‘:) :/ : (‘ being his most recent), but also has a string of youtube videos that have really helped boost his notoriety.

I caught onto him shortly after he started working with Matty Trump – who I knew about through Sam Adams. But unlike Sammy, Cam Meekins is more of a hip-hop guy. Dude can rap, and he’s creative with it (I’ll post some youtube videos at the bottom). And if he is getting props from 9th Wonder (who, in another tweet referred to Cam as “#dope”) then you have your credibility right there.

9th Wonder is a veteran producer out of North Carolina. He has quite the impressive resume, including work with Pete Rock, Buckshot, David Banner, Murs, and Erykah Badu. 9th is as smooth on the beat as any producer doing it right now (check the videos at the bottom). His style reminds me a lot of Dilla. He has a plethora of collaborations under his belt, and Cam would be a great addition. Both are creative in their respective arts (rapper/producer). I’m excited if this happens. I hope the two follow through.
