Like characters in “The Walking Dead,” music producer Cam believes creatives feed off each other’s energy. From Kanye West’s GOOD Music with John Legend and Common, to the days of old where Death Row Records was represented by Snoop, Tupac and Dr. Dre to Dre’s creation of Aftermath that birthed Eminem and 50 Cent, creatives have been notorious for finding like-minded individuals to conspire with to create even greater work. Music producer Cam is looking to spark the same type of cult following with his Kids Like Us movement.

Houstonian Cam has worked to make a name for himself as a music producer, snagging his placement on “Upgrade U” for King Beyoncé featuring hubby Jay Z. Cam continued amassing heavy weight credibility scoring placements with Ciara, B.O.B and Jeezy, but having an exclusive seat behind the mixing board was never enough for the former trombone player.

“I started rapping and producing at the same time, but the production is what took off first. But my plan was never to just produce music. I write, rap, produce … all of that,” he says.

Cam’s acknowledgement of his own diversity is what sparked his interest in creating a crew for creatives like himself that can’t be boxed into one talent or genre. His Kids Like Us crew embraces creative people from all walks of artistic expression.

He says, “This movement is simply a collective of super dope people doing all forms of art. We’re creating culturally dope work and setting trends through art. It’s the wave of the future.” 

Much like Kanye West, who is admittedly one of Cam’s inspirations, he knows transitioning from behind the booth to being on the mic isn’t an easy transition. He admires Kanye for his hard work and determination and ability to make others respect his transition.

“Today, I’m focused on a whole different level than before. I want to change the world. Music is a healer. Kids Like Us is just the beginning,” he says.
