Lloyd Banks Feat. Prodigy & Vado
Lloyd Banks is one of the most consistent rappers in the game, and he's got longevity too, but he's also one of the most lowkey. He's not out here like his G-Unit partner 50 Cent trolling and looking for limelight. When he finally comes out of hiding to release music, it's usually an event, at least for his cult following, among which I count myself, shout out me.
Along with the Jeremih and Cam'ron collaboration, "We Da Wave," Vado has also shared a furious solo track called "Go Crazy." This one allows him the space to cram as many bars as possible, working a simple hook into the mix, but keeping one consistent vocal style throughout, giving it the feel of a freestyle. As a Harlem rapper, this is his natural territory, and should satisfy the fans in New York who value good old-fashioned spitting above all else. There's no official word on a new project from Vado, but these two releases do seem to suggest he's got something big on the way.
We Da Wave
Vado Feat. Jeremih & Cam'ron
Jeremih has been on a tear recently, collaborating with the like of Chance The Rapper, The Game, and Dreezy, as well as releasing his won mixtape, Late Nights: Europe, last week. Today, Mih has teamed with Harlem's Vado and Cam'ron for yet another potential hit, "We Da Wave." Vado and Cam have a long musical history, and they sound as comfortable as ever here together, while Jeremih supplies a dose of sweetness to their gritty New York style. Vado shared Slime Flu 5 in 2015, and he seems due for another project, perhaps this a sign that it's on the way?
Monty & Vado
Vado and Monty are two artists at very different stages in their careers. Vado, who has been holding it down for Harlem (and We the Best!) for about a decade, capped off 2015 with the release of his celebrated Slime Flu 5 in November. Monty got featured on approximately 189 songs on Fetty Wap's debut album, which dropped in September, and is now attempting to take flight as a solo artist.
Big Trill & Project Pat Feat. Vado
Big Trill comes through with an track size appropriately to his name, featuring big bass and a catchy-as-hell chorus. The Memphis turned New York City rapper brings in Project Pat and Vado to round out the song, and they tag team on the beat for a verse each, getting down with Project Pat's signature Memphis style. The trio raps about trapping on the song, which shouldn't come as a surprise.
Vado Feat. D. Shake
Coming off the release of his Slime Flu 5 mixtape, Vado decides to come through today and share one last record before the year ends called “New New” featuring D. Shake. Over the eerie production, Vado & Shake deliver a infectious street cut that finds them rapping about wanting everything “new.” No word yet as for where this will end up, but seeing how its available for free download, it could very well be just a little something for the fans during the Holidays. Hit play and let us know what you think of it.
Vado Feat. Jadakiss & Narley Jenkins
After appearing on the DJ Khaled We The Best posse cut, "365," with Ace Hood and Kent Jones, Vado is back this Wednesday morning with a new leak off Slime Flu 5 aka #SF5.
DJ Khaled Feat. Ace Hood, Kent Jones & Vado
A couple of months before the release of "NBA 2K16," it was announced that the soundtrack would be curated by DJ Mustard, DJ Premier, and DJ Khaled. Each DJ lent a playlist to the video game, featuring their own productions as well as personal favorites, along with one brand new track. As 2K16 dropped yesterday, we now have the audio to DJ Khaled's exclusive track, "365," featuring Ace Hood, Kent Jones, and Vado.
Money And Power
Vado Feat. DJ Khaled, Ace Hood, Mavado & Uncle Murda
DJ Khaled has proved himself to be an unstoppable force, and this time he teams up with We The Best Music Group Ace Hood, & Mavado along with Uncle Murda for a new joint called "Money and Power."
Vado Feat. Chinx
Chinx will be releasing his posthumous album, Welcome to JFK, on Friday, August 14th. We received an early stream of the deceased Coke Boy rapper's album yesterday though, as well as the leak "Die Young" (that title pulls at the heartstrings) over the weekend.
Love My Niggas
Maino Feat. Vado & Uncle Murda
After a minor setback, Maino finally released the third installment in his King Of Brooklyn mixtape series on Tuesday morning. Laced with 17 tracks, the follow up to last year’s album features guest appearances from Chinx, Vado, Uncle Murda, Kevin Gates, and many more.
March Madness (Freestyle)
To promote his upcoming Slime Flu 5 mixtape, We The Best's own Vado decides to come through today and share a new freestyle off it first over Future’s “March Madness” instrumental.
Cassidy Feat. Maino, Papoose, Dave East, Uncle Murda, FAT TREL & Vado
Cassidy continues to keep the new music coming. After hitting us with the track “Lets Go Champ”, the Philly native decides to return and give his March release “MMM” the MEGA-remix treatment, recruiting Fred Money, Vado, Uncle Murda, Vado, JR Writer, Fat Trel, Dave East, Chubby Jag, Compton Menace, Red Café, Papoose, Drag-On, and Fred Da Godson.
Deep Cover (Freestyle)
Chinx Feat. Vado
To pay tribute to the late Chinx Drugz, DJ Bobby Trends decides to come through and liberate this unreleased freestyle from the Coke Boy member titled “Deep Cover” featuring Harlem’s Vado.
I Declare War
DJ Kay Slay Feat. Styles P, Sheek Louch, Vado, Raekwon & Rell
DJ Kay Slay is known to hold it down for New York, and his latest record is no exception. The DJ has recruited a multi-generational who's who of the big city's emcees, tapping Styles P and Sheek Louch of the LOX, Raekwon of The Wu-Tang Clan, Roc-A-Fella OG Rell, and newer Harlem voice Vado for the cut.
Shoot 4 U
Vado was one of the late arrivals to the Valentine's Day drop, coming through in the evening, but rather than just sharing a track, he decided to drop vol. 2 of his V-Day mixtape, which impacted two years ago. Apparently, Vado wasn't into sharing the love last Valentine's, but we're happy to have him back, with 8 brand new tracks.
Vado Feat. Chinx
On Valentine's Day, Vado will be dropping off a new EP, and just now, he shared the first track from it. Chinx is featured, and it was produced by Dolla Bill Kidz. Fittingly, the song is about a specific woman in Vado's life, who by the sound of things is quite a boss. Chinx is only here to supply the hook, but he does so very capably, lending a lovelorn air to the song. Quotable Lyrics
Vado Feat. Chinx
Vado and Chinx have become pretty regular collaborators, and after giving us "Doin' My Thing" a few months back, they're back together today with Vado's new leak "Told Ya". Chinx emulates French Montana on the hook, while Vado schools us on a few things. The New York staple is currently prepping an EP, and in Vado tradition, it'll be impacting in time for Valentine's Day. Actually it'll be dropping on the 14th exactly.
Doin My Thing
Vado Feat. Chinx
Vado and Chinx are two rappers currently making waves in New York, Vado as a part of DJ Khaled's We The Best collective, and Chinx as the second-in-line for French Montana's Coke Boys crew. The two have come together for a new record that isn't exactly the pure New York record you might expect, which makes it all the more interesting.
Best Of The Best (Remix)
Havoc Feat. Vado
Havoc just dropped off his new album 13 Reloaded earlier this week, and we were able to provide you with an exclusive album stream a day before it hit the web. The stream is still live if you want to check it out before copping it on iTunes. With the entire production handled by the 1/2 of Mobb Deep, you can guarantee you're in for some nice, NY beats.
