Rapper Ali Vegas Calls on Kanye, Jadakiss
Called by some the greatest rapper from Queens, NY since Nas, rapper Ali Vegas is ready to come into the mainstream with his upcoming album 'Hebrew 12:15.' The record, scheduled for October, will feature production by Kanye West and a guest appearance by Jadakiss, according to the 22-year-old emcee.
AOL Music spoke to Vegas a few weeks ago in L.A., where he appeared at NBA players Baron Davis and Paul Pierce's A Midsummer's Night's Dream Event. The setting was very appropos, as Vegas' close friend -- they call each other cousins -- is Lakers forward Lamar Odom, who runs the Rich Soil Entertainment label that is releasing 'Hebrew 12:15.'
The album's title stems from the tragic death of Odom's seven month-old son on June 29 of this year. "It was named after my little cousin, Lamar Odom's son Jayden," Vegas says. "It's dedicated to him."
