As I unpack the boatloads of new music that visit the Booth each day I try to keep an open mind and not judge a book by its cover; and by “book” I mean Cam’ron and Vado, and by “cover” I mean their new mixtape single It’s Your Party. Let me try to be diplomatic about this. (Get it? Diplomatic? Nevermind.) While I have nothing against Killa Cam, the formerly all-pink-everything emcee can be a little hit or miss, I frankly don’t know anything about Vado (he’s from Harlem) and producer AraabMUZIK is frankly young and unproven. And yet as I soon as I pressed play and the oversized production hit my eardrums, I discovered that I was undeniably a It’s Your Party supporter. Sure, Cam and Vado may not be the second coming of Ghost and Raekwon, but Party proves the duo can hit, and hit hard. For more “doper than the haters think” hip-hop, cop Cam’ron & The U.N. Presents: Heat in Here (Vol. 1) when it drops May 25.
