Vado signs with Interscope

On Monday, Cam'ron announced that his protégé, fellow Harlem rapper Vado, has inked a recording contract with Interscope Records.

"He just signed a deal with Interscope," the rapper told Angie Martinez on her Hot 97 radio show. "Shout to Jimmy Iovine, DJ [DJ Mormile, senior VP of A&R at Interscope], what up, yo?! Big shout to DJ and Jimmy Iovine over there at Interscope. We appreciate that."

Since their reunion, various members of the Diplomats have mentioned the possibility of the group, formerly signed to Jay-Z's Roc-a-Fella Records, signing to Interscope.

"Everything is still going, but we all had prior obligations," Cam'ron said. "Like me and Vado got this Gunz 'n Butta album that's coming out. Jim [Jones] has a solo album coming out called Capo. Juelz [Santana] is working on his mixtape. But me and Jim just definitely had obligations with Koch that we couldn't drop everything. We working with DJ and Jimmy Iovine to get the deal over there at Interscope done for us as well. It's just a little more intricate being that everybody is signed to a label already."

Jones' contract with E1 Entertainment (formerly Koch Records) will be up after the release of his Capo album, due in stores April 5, according to Cam'ron. Santana is still on Def Jam Records, and despite his recent trouble with authorities, the rapper announced plans to release three mixtapes prior to the arrival of a proper album at the end of the year, according to Rap Radar.

As for Vado, though he is not a formal member of the Diplomats (Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey), he is an official member of Cam'ron's the UN, a separate group started before Dipset's reconciliation. Thanks to street burners like "Speakin' Tungs" and "We All Up in Here," it was thought that Vado would be a lock to make XXL magazine's Freshmen 2011 issue. But in early January, Cam'ron said Vado would pass on participating if the opportunity presented itself, saying his artist deserves a bigger look.

Vado released a retail mixtape, Slime Flu, last October and his collaborative album with Cam'ron, Gunz 'n Butta, comes out on April 19 on E1. While Vado's fanbase continues to expand, Killa Cam is clearly still one of his biggest supporters.

"Vado's crazy out there," Cam'ron said. "If y'all don't know about Vado, make sure y'all check that young boy out, man. He's the new voice of Lenox Ave. right now. Make sure you go get his mixtape, Slime Flu. We got an album coming out called Gunz 'n Butta and his solo album will be out later this year. That's my statement."

Complex Previews Pusha T’s Fear of God Mixtape

Complex has a pretty comprehensive breakdown of that new Pusha mixtape, due out March 21st.

We’ve already heard a few of the cuts and some of the lyrics (P recycles the verse he spit here on a song called “Blow”), but the piece offers some info on a couple of the collaborative tracks that the project includes, such as “I Still Wanna” ft. Rick Ross and Ab-Liva:

No one has sold more kilos (on wax) than Rozay, so we’re gonna go ahead and say he’s the perfect fit for a track about how deep down inside, Pusha still wants to move keys. For anyone who can’t get enough of Ross’ grunts, this track won’t disappoint since Ross grunts about five times during his verse and once during Pusha’s verse. Meanwhile, Pusha rhymes about how, “I still wanna move kilos/That’s what happens when you Micheal and they treat you like you’re Tito”

And “Touch It” with Kanye West:

Remember Cam’ron’s “Touch It Or Not”? Well, this song basically has the same concept expect it’s much less vulgar. And instead of Cam’s hilarious pick-up lines, Push kicks off his verse begging for pussy saying, “Please, please, please” like James Brown. The beat is vintage Kanye, sounding like something that could have been a bonus cut on Common’s Be. After killing so many verses in 2010, we were really hoping ‘Ye would spit a few bars on this one, but instead he just does the hook.
Hit the jump for a tentative tracklist.
