Vado Talks Origins Of "Slime Flu 2," Planning Music Videos
Vado chops it up with KarmaloopTV about his latest mixtape "Slime Flu 2."
KarmaloopTV recently caught up with Cam'ron's latest protege Vado as a part of their video interview series. During the interview, the Harlem up-and-comer explained the origins of his latest project Slime Flu 2 and his immediate plans for his career.
Vado explained that the majority of the songs on Slime Flu 2 were potential singles he pitched to his label Interscope that were ultimately rejected. Not having a project on which to use the tracks, he says that he decided to turn the passed-over singles into a mixtape. He also added that fans can expect at least four music videos to come from the tracks featured on the tape.
"Well, Slime Flu 2 was mostly based on a lot songs that I was doing that [I] handed to the label, which is Interscope, you know, trying to make that single record," he explained. "Slime Flu 2 was [comprised of] the songs that I guess they wasn't feeling was hitting, so I put it all together and put that mix tape out. But I've got special songs on there that I'm doing videos for, like 'OK Y'all,' 'Louis V Bags,' 'No More Drama,' 'Frankie Lymon' - don't get it twisted; they're definitely good songs, but they just weren't hitting."
