Whoa, Cam’Ron Only Made HOW Much For ‘Paid In Full’?!


In 2003, Cam’Ron starred in what would go on to become a classic film, Paid In Full. The movie was shot three years prior in 2000, when Cam was not quite yet a household name with hits like “Oh Boy,” “Hey Ma” and the whole Dipset movement, and his pay clearly reflected that. “To be totally honest with you, I believe I got $8500 to do that movie, and that was the end of it,” Killa revealed in a new interview with ThisIs50. “I don’t know (how much the movie grossed) I was just more happy and excited just to do the movie. That movie came out like 2002, 2003 but it got filmed in 2000, it was delayed putting the movie out. I only had one album out, for me to even be invited to do the movie, I wasn’t trying to complain, I really wasn’t trying to learn the business, I was just wanting to be in the movie.” Of course he knows how to move now, but that was certainly an early learning lesson!
