Vado Gives The Full Story On Why He Left Interscope Records
Vado gives the full story on why he left Interscope Records. He also states that he wasn’t dropped from the label, but left since Interscope wasn’t helping him release anything. Since Vado is no longer on Interscope, he can spend his excessive free time playing on partybingo.com, balling out and researching other record labels.
In 2009 Vado dropped his collaborative mixtape “Boss of All Bosses” with Cam’Ron and it was on fire. Soon later in 2010 his solo project “Slime Flu” dropped and garnered him some attention.
In March 2011, Vado signed a deal with Interscope Records and Vado was quiet with rumors going around that he had been dropped from the label.
In a recent interview with XXL Mag.com, Vado explains how he asked for his walking papers and stated that he didn’t make the right decision by signing with the label.
“The Interscope deal, if you want me to be honest with you, 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.”
Vado is preparing his “Slime Flu 3” mixtape and said that Interscope was “under construction.” “Never. I was never dropped. They gave me too much money. I walked off. They gave me the opportunity to leave so I left. They weren’t helping me in no shape or form. For example, with Chief Keef, they just threw his album out there without even building it or nothing. Interscope is the type where you just got to do it on your own. So you know like, TDE is helping Kendrick, Game is doing everything on his own, from getting the features and beats and putting it out on his own, so it’s sort of like play at your own risk over there. So I had to get back over here. I’m not over there on the West, I’m over here with people that’s seen me grow up at these labels. This is where I wanna be and they want me here.Photo credit: xclusiveszone.net
