'HitList' Targeting Female Celebrities Released To Public
NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ C.A.M.IL. Official Website) - Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton are among those targeted on a sexual 'hitlist' of female celebrities released as a hiphop single. New rap artist shamelessly names more than 25 famous females as targets of his sexual fantasies with no regard to status or position.
While many of the celebrities mentioned in the song are familiar *** icons like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Beyonce, others were untraditional targets for such explicit sexual attention.
Expressing his desire to "feel on George Bushes daughters, marry Oprah, and 'hit' Hillary and Condelesa Rice, C.A.M.IL. presents his listeners with a whole new perspective of the sexuality of these women.
With a possibility of a female president of this country this year, this singe raises concerns for women in positions that require the respect and attention of millions of males. One must wonder how many men are quietly having fantasies about what C.AM.IL. so eloquently expresses with his cutting vocals and sensuous lyrics. "HitList" is available for download on itunes.
Triple Awards For 'Barack The Vote" the CD! by Artistopia Music Just three short months following the release of his blockbuster CD "BARACK THE VOTE" ( 6/17/2008), yet another single from the CAMIL collection has earned an award! "Go Girl" a sensuous collaboration featuring R&B artist FATINA, will be featured as Track of the Day in Hip Hop on GarageBand Records award winning website www.garageband.com on 28Sep2008. This is the third hit from the CD to win a showcase on the site providing well deserved exposure for the dynamic lyricist and hip hop artist.
Already a favorite song on Myspace.com , CAMIL recently released a pictorial video for “Go Girl” that is causing chaos across the web! Bringing the lyrics to life with visuals of a barrage of bumptious bootys, CAMIL is becoming ever more controversial with his sexually explicit music. A similar video promoting his song Hit List was removed from Myspace TV after receiving over 10,000 views during the recent promotion of CAMIL's " I AM SO SO DEF!" entry in the BET Hot 16 Challenge competition. The video was censored for it's depiction of sexually suggestive pictures of a plethora of celebrity females including Oprah, Hillary Clinton and Condelesa Rice.
The CD abounds with versatility by mixing signature sex raps , traditional love songs and a vibrant display of CAMIL’s social consciousness. Debuting as the number 1 political song on Soundclick.com, the title track remix "BARACK THE VOTE (OBAMA VOTE PLEASE) continues to top the charts. The song is also racking up awards at Garage Band Records (www.garageband.com) receiving kudos for Best Bass in Rap, week of 8Sep2008 and Track of the Day in Rap on 14Sep2008.
Another favorite on the CD is the mother's day tribute, 'Always Love You Momma". A remix of The Notorious B.I.G.'s classic "Will Always Love Big Poppa". CAMIL effectively takes possession of the track with heartfelt lyrics delivered with truth and finesse. The song was the Garage Band Records reviewers pick for Best Lyrics and Melody in Rap, week of 4Aug2008 and It was also featured as Track of the Day in Rap on 19Aug2008.
