by Cam James

supported by


Cam puts a lyricist's twist on Plies' hit single "Ritz Carlton (Ran Off On Da Plug Twice".



Ran off wit’ this rap shit
I got no plug I don’t smoke weed
friends hatin’ on a young playa
get scalped tickets in the nosebleeds
make it happen my damn self
my fans dope, got a army dog
turnin’ up at my shows lately
bring all the liquor, it’s a party y’all
people tell me I got it
if you talk to me imma hold it down
honestly, I’m private
that Florida boy with the gold sound
I speak…
they reactin’ say they snappin’
y’all was weak
nobody feelin’ what you dealin’
i repeat…i’m the illest, no prescription
educated, usin’ that to keep these youngins
motivated off the streets
like 2001, I got The Answer never sweep
somebody gotta do the work, I never sleep
(never never)

ran off on the plug
nobody gave me shit, i started this off in the mud
so many times, almost went in the coffin it was tougher
girlfriends, they would suffer, all my lovin’ for another
been neglectin’ on my mother, she deserve the best of me
daytime i’m on my job, n music get the rest of me
no idyllic recipe, balance is hard to find
my vices and bad advice I experienced harder times
been steadily caught in binds, writin’ beyond the lines
competin’ w/ nonbelievers that started on 99
I’m a created player, wit layers I started blind
and I’m still killin’ the stages, I’m still one of a kind
my greatest weapon my mind, imma poet wit sauce
been divin’ head first in this rap game, knowin’ the cost
y’all some associates, when I walk in, know it’s the boss
i been resurrected, they been sleepin’ i throw ‘em the cross
ankle broke

Ran off ran off

Ran off on da plug, ran off on da plug
boy the game different what you thought it was?
i been rollin' different got a little buzz
i been rollin' different got a little buzz
yeah yeah
