Harlem’s very own Vado is currently gearing up for the release of his Long Run Vol. 2 due out sometime soon. The latest taste of the body of work arrived yesterday (Oct. 28) as he linked up with Dave East and Lloyd Banks for his newest single “Respect the Jux.” According to the rapper himself, the song is set to appear elsewhere in addition to just the aforementioned project.
“’Respect the Jux’ is taken from my forthcoming project, Long Run 2, but it will also be the title track from a movie which I will appear in next year,” he said of the new song. “This is the soundtrack of the gritty NYC streets, so it’s only right I went and got two of the grittiest lyricists to join me in Lloyd Banks and Dave East; AKA Bank Matthews and Dave Hyatt. The track is produced by my fellow Harlemite ‘6 Figure Digga.’”
Prior to this, Vado teamed up with Dave East as they dropped off their take on Drake and Ross’ “Lemon Pepper Freestyle.” This year also saw Vado release the singles “N.I.S.S.S.” and “It’s Alright” with Lloyd Banks and Shemon Luster. He also recently joined Jim Jones and Rain on the El Capo (Deluxe) standout “MMTC.” Meanwhile, East has kept busy with a slew of videos for high quality tracks like “No Lucc (East Mix),” “Child Of The Ghetto,” “Mercedes Talk,” and “Know How I Feel” with Mary J. Blige.
The Mass Appeal-signed artist’s latest project, Karma 3, made landfall last August and spawned a deluxe upgrade months later. Just last week, he also teamed up with Millyz and Statik Selektah for the freshly released “Chapo” single.
