Jay-Z On The Cover Of RollingStone Magazine [With Excerpt]

He’s had more Number One albums than Elvis Presley. He hangs with Barack Obama at the White House. And he’s riding high after leaving his longtime label Def Jam to work a $150 million deal with Live Nation, delivering some of his best live performances ever. At the age of 40, Jay-Z qualifies as an elder statesman of hip-hop, a fact that’s more remarkable considering other rap peers have hung up the mike to pursue careers in Hollywood. So how does he run the game?

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, contributing editor Mark Binelli goes one-on-one with the New York legend, watching Jay-Z try on a new suit in his sprawling Manhattan office and tagging along to the Four Seasons, where the rapper goofs by mispronouncing actor Kelsey Grammer’s name at a watch auction (after calling the Frasier star “Chelsea,” he asks Binelli how to spell “faux pas”). It seems the man who made his name rhyming about hustling and hos in Brooklyn’s Marcy Projects is actually more comfortable around an unlikely new crowd: indie rockers. “I love the energy coming out indie rock right now,” he says, name-checking Grizzly Bear. “It has this rebellion thing that hip-hop is missing now, the thing that made hip-hop hip-hop.”

Vado: Cam’ron Protege’ Speaks On Dipset Reunion

In an exclusive interview with Complex magazine, Harlem’s up and coming rapper Vado, shares his feeling on the Diplomats reunion,  linking up with Cam’ron, “Large In The Street,” his solo album Slime Flu, Gunz N’ Butta and much more.

Complex: When did you actually link up with Cam’ron?

Vado: Last year. By the time I came up, he was already established. We know the same people in the ’hood so I reached out to that mutual friend and he gave some music to Cam. He passed him my demo, just a few tracks I had laid. I was working with the same people I work with now, my in-house crew Factory Media. On my birthday, March 13th, he invited me into the studio. I went to the studio, he was pulling out wild beats, and I asked if I could jump on ’em. I jumped on ’em, and he was feeling it. We was just recording and gettin’ it in and it’s been history ever since. I’m signed to Cam.

Complex: You shout out Dip Set and U.N. Are you a part of both?

Vado: Yeah, you can say that. The [U.N.] album will be out in August called Gunz ’N’ Butta.

Complex: How did you find out about the reunion with Cam and Jim?

Vado: Cam sat me down, he told me what’s going on and what’s about to happen and I felt it was a great look for Harlem. Then to top it off, you’re adding a new artist to it, you feel me? So I told Cam it sounded like a great look and we about to take over. I’m behind whatever Cam do, no homo, ’cause if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be here.

Complex: When did he sit you down and talk to you?

Vado: Like a week before Miss Info had put it out. I was hearing it through the grapevine but me and him never spoke on it. One day he asked me to come to his house because he lives down the road from me in Edgewater. So I went to his crib, we sat and he asked me how I felt about it and I said that’s a good look. I mean me being from Harlem, I want to do this music right. I want to big up my borough. I want to be with cats from my town that could solidify me. That’s why I wanted to come up with Millz but when it didn’t happen with Millz. I didn’t really take it serious. But then I was like, “You know what? I’m nice.” To keep it 100 with you, I was like that dude in the ‘hood that was nice on the court, but never played in the league, never played college ball, but everybody in the streets knows he’s nice and they pump him up.

Complex: Did Cam say what changed his mind? For a while Cam said he wasn’t going to reunite with Jim again.

Vado: Nah, and I didn’t ask. I just figured it was family.

Complex: Now that Dip Set is coming back together, have you been building with Jim Jones or Juelz at all?

Vado: Nah, I haven’t kicked it with Juelz. I’ve seen Jim a couple times and we’ve said “What up” and everybody’s cool. Hell Rell, I’ve seen him; I mean, niggas fuck with me. There is no bad blood.

Complex: When they do the Diplomatic Immunity 3, you’ll be a part of that, right?

Vado: Yeah most likely. [Vado stops the interview to holler at some chicks] I want to take y’all out. I’m not from here, this is new to me. Y’all pretty so that’s good enough. [Back to Complex] Hello? [Laughs.] My fault, slime. [He goes back to talking to the girls.] I’m with Cam, y’all can introduce yourselves.
