If you have been following New York’s underground/up & coming rappers, then you are most likely to know who Vado is. Cam’ron’s protegé is busy at work, dropping mixtapes to help him build a bigger buzz before the release of his debut solo album. The Harlem native told XXL that he submitted his Slime Flu 2 mixtape to DJ Drama last week and is expecting it to be released early next month.
“We were thinking about Halloween [for the release], but that would be too close for Drama, so right now he’s hosting it and he’s going to give me a date,” said Vado. “I’m thinking about putting out a mixtape every month, keep em going every month until the album.”
Vado says he expects his solo debut album to drop “first or second quarter” of next year, after he’s built enough mixtape buzz with Slime Flu 2 and Boss of All Bosses 3, a collaboration with his mentor and good friend Cam’ron.
Last week, Vado’s new single “Okay Y’all,” Ft. Fabolous, off Slime Flu 2 leaked on the interweb last week.
“I can’t wait to put out this mixtape,” Vado said, “to show people I’m the future.”
