After months of serving as Cam’ron’s sidekick – seriously, those two have seemed like rappin, booty-loving Siamese twins lately – Harlem representer Vado is finally ready to step out on his own. With a signing to Interscope close in the rearview, along with a so-so reception from the Booth on previous feature Ain’t a Thang to Me, Vado’s hoping to truly make his mark with new, female friendly single Motivated (Tired of Playing Games). Producers Trackmasters lay down a sugary, late ‘90s-esque beat for Vado to rhyme over, and he responds with appropriately romantic bars vowing to treat his special lady friend better than any other man could, sentiments crooner Quo echoes on a silky hook and bridge; with songs like this and Interscope’s backing, we could be hearing Vado’s slow but steady flow on radio stations everywhere soon. If you’re feeling Motivated to seek out more Vado, you’ll definitely want to cop his upcoming and currently unscheduled Slime Flu (The Lost Tapes), a follow-up to his Slime Flu mixtape, available across the interwebs now.
