The Bluff

Album: O.N.I.F.C. (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Cameron Thomaz (aka Wiz Khalifa) collaborating with his namesake Cameron Giles aka Cam'ron. The latter raps: "I'm Killa, he Wiz, but all our checks say Cameron."
  • Speaking with Hard Knock TV, Wiz explained how their collaboration came about. "First of all, I've been a huge Cam'ron fan forever. Him and Snoop Dogg are my favorite rappers. I've been trying to get up with Cam for a long time, but it never really happened. My man [Sam] Crespo, who works at Atlantic ... he called Cam and gave Cam my number. Cam texted me, and I was like, 'Oh s---, it's Cam.'"
  • Wiz told Artist Direct this is his favorite track on O.N.I.F.C. He explained: "That's because it was the best situation to ever happen, and it's the biggest dream to come true for me. The way it happened, what the song is, and what it's about make it my favorite. Cam'Ron has a lot of swag. I was just trying to match that Harlem swag but still do my Pittsburgh thing. It's a good mesh."
