Vado Signs To DJ Khaled's We The Best Imprint

MrCrookedLetterMrCrookedLetter Unless You Play Smart, Follow Your Mind Also Your Heart, The Perfect BalancePosts: 22,330 ✭✭✭✭✭
Vado has signed a deal with DJ Khaled's We The Best label, a subsidiary of Cash Money Records.

Taking to Twitter, the Cam'Ron affiliate wrote that he is "taking my talents 2 South Beach #WTB." He also retweeted one of his followers that wrote, "@VADO_MH COMING OUT WITH HIS NEW TAPE AND SIGNING WITH KHALID #ITSAGOODYEAR."

The Harlem, New York rapper previously signed with Interscope Records in March 2011. He got relatively silent on the music front, fueling rumors that he had been dropped from the label.

He recently gave an interview where he explained how the company heeded his request to leave the company on his own accord. "I feel like I shouldn’t have even went all the way to the West Coast," he said. "I feel I should’ve stayed grounded with the New York labels. They understand and know me so they know how to handle me, they know what to do. You go all the way over there; they don’t know what’s going on. So now, I gotta fix everything up and I gotta work with their music. It was just a whole big difference to the point that I had to ask for my walking papers."

Looks like I'm taking my talents 2 South Beach #WTB

    yes, he is cash money now.

    wonder why he signed to called instead of straight to Cash Money. Not even sure this is a good move for him but khaled does push Ace Hood so maybe he will get the exposure he wants... Is he still under the UN?
    COMING MAY 1ST 2013!!!!

    Well this might help him get more exposure..I dunno if I would've signed to what's basically 1 label under another label. I guess we'll see how it goes in the long run

    Any kind of exposure would be good for vado. Imagine him jumping on khaleds big records like ace hood.

    Should expect a lot of Vado features on Khaled's next compilation...
  • BetaBeta #FastFamily Posts: 64,794 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Nooooo lol I dont want himnto sign to khaled cuz I dont fuck wit him and nobody wit cash/young money. But on the other hand if khaled could make a name for ace hood then vado can finally get exposure. I just hope V dont go away from what made me like him in the first place.

    Khaled>>>>Camron finally he may be able too put out a album instead of mixtapes I see a win win for him.
    Bitch shut your mouth before I fuck it

    I'm still a rap fan, microphone fiend
    An insider like Russell Crowe, behind the scenes
    You can be the hottest MC, literally leave the mic smoking
    No marketing and promotion
    No 106 & Park, no TRL
    Don't kill the messenger homey but don't expect to sell
    Viacom own MTV, VH1
    BET, five labels until BMG
    Merged with Sony, EMI, Universal and WEA
    Only four labels in the music industry bruh
    All radio controlled by two companies
    Just two rap magazines, read between the lines
    Hip-hop used to be the expression of struggle with rhymes
    Corporate monopolized, only certain shit shines
    Only way to get radio and video and blow
    They control what you say, and the images you show
    CNN owned by AOL, own Time Warner
    Trickle down effect of the New World Order
    And you wonder why "Van Gogh" was killed
    Same reason Dead Prez lost they deal, get real
    I spit for the cabbage, grind with a mission
    And put Capitol Records in missionary positions
    Used to love H.E.R. like Common, but then you get signed
    (Behind the Music) now I just fuck the music from behind

    Magazine writers misprint you, take words out of context
    And got the nerve to wonder why I'm vexed
    When I read the publication
    I was like "Damn, was we in the same conversation?"
    This for the rap conniseurs, magazine critics
    Backpackers, rap stars with bullshit gimmicks
    Fans, even the "Stans," the groupies and label executives
    With corporate cards trickin my budget on coochie
    Video chicks sucking dick between takes
    Hoping to get saved, and thanks for the ass shake
    Like Dave Chappelle in "Half Baked," need a backyotomy
    And some of these thugs is into sodomy
    Large print giveth, fine print taketh away
    Your favorite rapper ain't recoup label take it away
    Have a nigga tempted to take an AK, goin postal
    Rap made me loco, hustle bicoastal
    (Why?) Because the West monopolize
    Same ol' niggas tellin the same ol' lies
    L.A. radio, quick to suck out of town dick
    South support they own create international hits
    Out of regional records, East coast create the buzz
    Music capitol of the world, thought it wasn't when it was
    And somehow manage to screw us
    Call West coast gangster rap whack, then sold it back to us...
