HitHipHop: Whether it’s an interview or a song, you always manage to shout out your hometown of Harlem, sometimes more than once. Tell me what Harlem represents to you?
Vado: Harlem represents Hip Hop, you know? A lot of talented celebrities came from Harlem. So, you know coming up I just listened to Hip Hop, Jazz. You know different types of music but it all represented Harlem. The Apollo. It’s kind of like the Mecca if you ask me.
HHH: So when Mase hopped on Love Me with R&B group 112, what did that mean for the game, you, and Harlem as a whole?
Vado: What that meant is just like, Mase was just really a “sky’s the limit” for artists in Harlem. You know like definitely. Mase, one time when he was in the game and he got on the 112 and started hitting & making them hits “Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems” etc, etc. That was definitely motivation for any upcoming artists in Harlem cause it was like he was doing everything. Then he was on Mariah. It was like sky’s the limit. You know so it had everybody feeling like they could make it.
Vado’s debut mixtape Slime Slu will be in stores on online this Tuesday October 12th
