Ten years is a long time.
Ten years the banks looked robust, the Conservative party were unelectable and an African-American President of the United States looked to be a lifetime away.
It's been ten years - a full decade - since Cam'Ron performed in the UK. Rightly lauded for his work at the turn of the Millennium, the rapper's work with The Diplomats still registers.
Since then, though, the hip hop icon's work has utterly changed. New mixtape 'Ghetto Heaven Vol.1' signalled yet another shift, while studio sessions with A-Trak have yet to be unveiled.
Now Cam'Ron has confirmed plans for a rare - extremely rare - UK show. Taking place in London at the Kentish Town Forum on June 3rd, tickets are on sale now.
Need some more persuading? Grime kingpin Skepta is set to play support.
Cam'Ron has confirmed the following show:
