=Track listing=


*The release of this album was delayed several times from November 2003.

*Two tracks appear on "Purple Haze" that appear on "Diplomatic Immunity 2" by The Diplomats ("Family Ties" and "Take 'Em to Church"). However, the two "Family Ties" are different. "Family Ties" on "Diplomatic Immunity 2" features Hell Rell and 40 Cal, while on "Purple Haze", it is only Cam'Ron. "Take Em To Church" on "Purple Haze" also features a slightly modified beat from the one featured on "Diplomatic Immunity 2".

*The track "Get 'Em Girls" was originally released on mixtapes (see Dipset/Byrd Gang Vol.1) using an orchestral sample but it was not cleared for use and so an altered version appears here.

* Pundit Bill O'Reilly made a reference to this album on an episode of "The O'Reilly Factor" in which Cam'Ron appeared.

* "Lord You Know" featuring Jaheim is a track Cam'ron made a music video for the "Purple Haze" hype. The music video stated that the song was to be on "Purple Haze". However, the album had too many songs and too little space to offer; therefore, the hit single was to be on "Sippin' On Sizzurp" mixtape.
