Music Review: Vado – Slime Flu

Posted by Okla Jones on October 26, 2010

During the late 1920s through the early 1930s, Harlem, NYC was the mecca of the African-American universe. It was a cultural movement that consisted of an evolution of literature, art and music. So, anyone from that particular suburb of Manhattan knows what it means to be born and raised there. Since then, the musical mecca has shifted to almost every part of the nation at one point or another. In the 1970s a new art form was presented to the national stage, the genre that we have all come to know and love as hip-hop. It was not centered in Harlem specifically, but in the borough of the Bronx… but it was New York City nonetheless. As history shows us, about every 10-15 years, the rap spotlight shifts back to NYC, and in 2010 the man who many consider would be the one to “bring the Big Apple back” is Cam’Ron’s protégé and fellow Harlemite, Vado.

Upon giving the phrase “slime” national acclaim, on October 12, Vado released his highly anticipated Slime Flu project to the masses. Lyrically he isn’t the sharpest rapper to ever do it, but like artist such as Nas, DMX, and 50 Cent (just to name a few…) he brings a refreshing sound to the game, one that we haven’t heard in a few years.

Cam’Ron – Cuffin’ (ft. Vado & Gucci Mane)

Posted by Mr. Put On on September 29, 2009

Looks like Cam’Ron dropped his album, then mixtapes, and is still going. No stopping in site for this man; so for all those who want him to go back to that Horse & Carriage business– I wouldn’t hold your breath. His most recent Gangsta Grillz mixtape Boss of All Bosses dropped late August and had heavy features by Vado. On this track Gucci brings his blessings, as he, Killa Cam, and Vado discuss this cuffin’ phenomenon. It’s rather sickening actually, to see a man cuffin’ (not wifin’) a chick, when everyone else knows what the real deal is. Well that’s neither here nor there, check it out.

For a second, I thought Cam was embarking on another hiatus. At least, that was until DJ Drama spilled the beans. This tape has been anticipated since news of it first leaked almost a year and some change ago.

Once again, however, Drama’s mixtapes > Drama’s albums.
