Although some of us have heard Vado’s Check Em Out before, a newly leaked version features guest appearances from Ludacris and Jadakiss - but is it better? Produced by Butter Beats, the simple bass and snare combo is one that will echo throughout your speakers, and immediately have you reminiscing about that old school New York Hip-Hop feel. With some samples and very little instrumentation thrown in, an east coast emcee like Vado is a perfect fit for the record. Interestingly, although I expected Vado and fellow Rotten Apple native Jadakiss to sound the most comfortable on the beat, it was Luda who actually has the best flow of the three emcees. I’m not saying that Vado and Kiss had bad verses, but it seems lately Ludacris is sounding like his did in his earlier, hungrier days. Still, I’ve been wrong before, and with every emcee throwing down a solid contribution, I’ll leave it up to the Booth to decide who rocked Check Em Out best. Let us know if this bass-heavy New York banger is a good stepping stone for Vado.
