I started The Camille Way in 2011 but it’s not the first blog I’ve written. I’ve been blogging since was around 12.( really young right? lol ) I used to browse Lupe Fiasco fan blogs (shout out to the THE LUPE FIASCO SHOW and lupEND -SKULLS )all the time because he’s my favorite rapper and one day thought to myself how cool it would be to create a space where music lovers could interact and also learn more about new music and new artists. I created a couple of blogs but TCW has been the most rewarding. I love music and I love writing so I guess you put those two together and you have me writing a music blog. Thanks to all the people who have supported me with the blog and all the other crazy things I like doing .I hope lovers of music or pop culture will find something cool to read on here.
