It's going down man, it's about to be on and crazy," he said. "Everybody got the word. Khaled just reached. He's family, so we got the same vision and that's to take over and go straight to the top and stay there. He want to get me there. I'ma let him."

He also touched on his super group with Fabolous, Lloyd Banks and Juelz Santana, stating that they've discussed teaming up but that there are no concrete plans in place.

"We was talking about it. One day, me, Banks and L was talking about it. They came to my birthday party at Perfection," he said. "We was talking about it, we was like, yo, it'd be a super group! Just smash it. Me, L and Banks was on the phone together. We was with it. It was on three-way. We all was with it, we was down with it."

Vado recently explained that his former label home Interscope Records was "under construction" and that the imprint let him go without any trouble. He also dropped his new mixtape Slime Flu 3.

    comparing Vado to Ace Hood is stupid. Ace Hood is absolutely terrible. I'm not saying is the best but he can hold a song down on hs own and is nice on the mic. one of the best from NY in a while.

    this is a great look for vado. ace hood never sells more than 100k and he's put out 3 albums under this imprint. its all about who you know not what you know. not everyone can be a general, but i think vado will be a good foot soldier
