Vado Inks Deal With Interscope Records
Cam’ron dropped news of his protégé’s fresh paperwork during an appearance on Angie Martinez’s Hot 97 radio show on Monday (March 28). “[Vado] just signed a deal with Interscope,” Cam announced on air. “Shout out to DJ and Jimmy Iovine at Interscope; we appreciate that. I’m really excited that he’s getting the opportunity to do his thing on his own.”
The news of Vado’s signing comes a few months following rumblings that the entire Diplomats crew, which includes Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana, were working on a deal with Interscope, back in October.
“We working with DJ and Jimmy Iovine to get the deal over there at Interscope done for us as well,” Cam continued to explain, during his on-air time. “It’s just a little more intricate, being that everyone is signed to a deal already. Everything’s still going, but we all just had prior obligations. Me and Vado got this ‘Gunz ‘N’ Butta’ album coming out. Jim [Jones] has a solo album coming out called ‘Capo,’ and Juelz is working on his mixtape.”
Cam’ron and Vado recently made an appearance on ‘The Mo’Nique Show,’ where the two Harlem rappers explained their bond. “We come from Harlem, from the same neighborhood,” Vado said. “I grew up on him, so I idolized Cam. I’m walking on air right now. To be honest with you, it’s a blessing.”
The duo’s upcoming album, ‘Gunz ‘N’ Butta,’ is currently slated for an April release. They dropped their most recent mixtape ‘Slime Flu’ back in October.
