Vado Talks Collabo W/ Lloyd Banks [VIDEO]

Vado may be gearing up to release his long-awaited album with Cam’ron, Gunz n’ Butta, but he’s also prepping some other collaborative efforts.

Appearing on XXL‘s UStream show, Spotlight, yesterday, the Harlem native hinted at a feature that he says will have New York City and beyond going crazy once it hits the streets. When asked if he would work with Lloyd Banks, the U.N. member dished the info. “You know what’s crazy?” he began. “I just did a freestyle yesterday—I can’t say for who—but I heard Banks was on it. Just wanna let y’all know, if you ask me, that’s definitely three of the top niggas in New York right now that’s reppin’. So that freestyle is gonna be crazy.”

The recent Interscope signee also spoke on his deal, saying that it had been in the works for months and that he hoped his official debut would be released by the end of the year.

Vado said that he is finishing up Slime Flu 2, a follow up to October’s retail street album, Slime Flu, though he wasn’t sure if it would be released for free or made available in stores like the first. In addition, he confirmed that Boss of All Bosses 3, the next installment of his collaborative mixtape series with Cam and DJ Drama, is finished and should also be made available in the coming months. Vado and Cam are also preparing to begin shooting Killa Season 2.

    YES!!! this is perfect for Vado. Banks came out as the hottest young spitta outta NYC when he came on, Vado could learn something from him….especially learn from Banks’ trails n tribulations from the evil empire(Interscope)

      @ pap3 you are correct BANKS really needed to get out off that situation now he is better than ever..he is also one of the few rappers left not to sell out(sell there souls) he will always be overlooked they rather put weak rappers in front of him cause really 99.9% of them are not in his league but they control the main stream music or better yet everything… still sounds better out of interscope. he has much more room to produce to his own material comfortably CC2 is the one of or in my opinion the hottest mixtapes of the year I bet he won’t even get nominated he said “F the awards he’d rather buy a coupe”- PLK

    Why the fuck does it always look so uncomfortable in these interviews? 2 people interviewing on both sides, the awkward pauses, no microphones, etc.
