Harlem’s Rapper Vado Is Still A Free Agent! T.I., Drake & DJ Khaled Are In Talks With Him

vado-air-jordan-xi-11-concord

Don’t believe those other blogs, Vado is still a free agent and he did not sign a record deal over this past weekend. This Harlem kid was released from Interscope Records a while back and he is now shopping a deal. Vado had an offer on the table from DJ Khaled’s ‘We The Best’ imprint which is under YMCMB’s umbrella and distributed through Universal Music Group/Republic Records. As of yet, Vado did not accept DJ Khaled’s offer! T.I. has been in talks with Vado to join his Hustle Gang and Drake has also been looking at Vado to possibly join him at his new imprint at Warner Bros (All of Warner Bros. artists has been moved to Atlantic Records). Below is how industry insider Miss Info is reporting the story.

So, I’ve been closely following the latest developments of our Harlem prodigy, young Vado….especially since we’ve been covering his career from when he first came on the scene with Cam. And it looks like there are some heavyweights all vying to sign Vado to various camps. Recently, Vado tweeted and deleted a subliminal about joining DJ Khaled’s We The Best team down in South Beach, and our sources say, Khaled is still the front-runner. But I’ve also heard that Drake has been looking at Vado to possibly join his new imprint at Warner Brothers, and T.I. has been in talks with Team Vado as well. Out of all three options, I think Khaled has a great track record for commitment (um…Ace Hood has how many albums already?) while Drake and 40 would bring the most diversity musically.”

We believe in God but do God believe in us
If we believe enough, will we ever get to know ‘im
That lean got us dozing, we forget that we the chosen
I’ve been poppin shit for too long
But still reppin’ where I came from
I guess it’s how I came up
I wish you would try to play us”-Kanye West
