Mixtape Review of Vado’s Official ‘Sinatra’ Release




Vado releases his new official feature, an EP titled ‘Sinatra’ on February 11, 2014.  On this project he brings along Rick Ross, French Montana, and Ace Hood.  With Production by Cool and Dre, SAP, Scott Storch, Dolla Bill Kidz, Heat Makers, Butter Beats, and B Wirks.

Vado, who resides from Harlem was once Camron’s protégé and sidekick.  His most notable releases and probably best works are from the ‘Slime Flu’ mixtape franchise.  Since the days of being Camron’s partner in rhyme have passed, he has recently matched up with Miami native DJ Khaled.  That would explain the Rick Ross, French Montana, and Ace Hood apperances.  It has been awhile since we have heard any new material from Vado as many critics and fans thought his career was over.  Now he is back with this mixtape EP that is 8 tracks of his recent efforts to gain critic’s acceptance and let fans know that his rap career has only begun.

On this release, Vado wastes no time handling his business by rapping about clothing style preferences, lavish women, and drug cartel lifestyle.  This style seems to have been handed down to him from Cam’ron.  On the track ‘Pimpin’ produced by B Wirks, he flows over Jay-Z and UGK’s  ‘Big Pimpin’ hit record with a reworked instrumental.  He still uses Jay-Z and UGK’s voice slowed down in the background on the hook.  The line is ‘You know I thug em, f*ck em, love em, leave em/cuz I don’t f*ukin need em’/I’m a pimp in every sense of the word b!tch/better trust and believe em’.

On the track ‘2 Fingers’ he brings along label mate Ace Hood to let the haters know he does not need or care what they have to say, it’s peace to them.  His flow is quick over this fast pace beat with r&b artists Kevin Cossom.

About Vado’s release of ‘Sinatra’, he still has what it takes to keep his name relevant in the mixtape/rap game.  This is just the beginning for Vado as he has signed with the ‘We The Best’ crew.  He may not be Camron’s sidekick or partner in rhyme anymore, but with his flow you can tell Camron was his Harlem mentor.  After this EP release, fans are looking forward to a retail album release by him.  Will he have it what it takes to keep his fan base raving about him since he has signed with DJ Khaled?  Be sure to check out and download this free mixtape release from Vado.
