Dipset’s Vado has officially announced his partnership with DJ Khaled‘s We The Best imprint weeks after confirming a departure from Interscope Records.
Vado credited his close-knit and family-like relationship with Khaled for solidifying the deal.
“It’s going down, man, it’s about to be on and crazy,” Vado confirmed in an interview. “Everybody got the word in, Khaled just, reached [out] ASAP. He’s family. You know what I’m saying? Of course, you know what I’m saying, we got the same vision and that’s to take over and go straight to the top and stay there and he wants to get me there and I’ma let him.” (This Is 50)
A few days ago, Vado hinted at possibly joining Khaled’s growing team.
“Shout out Khaled, shout out to the We The Best team, shout out to Mavado, shout out to Ace Hood, you already know,” Vado said in an interview. “Yeah, you know, it’s potential over there. It’s definitely potential over there. The potential is high. But you know, there’s a few people out there reaching. It’s not official yet. Nah, it’s just, hey, you ain’t know LeBron [James] was going to Miami until he really went to Miami, but you heard it all in the air. Khaled knew me for years, man. He knew me from the game, theJae Millz era. It’s definitely, there’s definitely close relations right there. He knows my family, I know his family.” (VLAD TV)
Rumors of a Khaled record deal heated up the online music blogs earlier this month.
After announcing earlier this month that he had parted ways with his label home Interscope Records, Vado has reportedly inked a deal with DJ Khaled’s, We The Best label. Last night, the frequent Cam’ron collaborator took to Twitter announcing, “Looks like I’m taking my talents 2 South Beach #WTB.” Followed shortly thereafter by a retweet of a follower who typed, “@VADO_MH COMING OUT WITH HIS NEW TAPE AND SIGNING WITH KHALID #ITSAGOODYEAR.” (XXL Mag)
Last May, Cash Money’s Birdman announced Khaled’s We The Best joined forces with his growing music empire.
“I’d like to let the world know that Khaled’s brand, which is We the Best, is officially signed to YMCMB and the first act coming out that umbrella … will be Ace Hood,” Birdman said. “I always wanted to have a chance to work with Ace Hood. We wanted to do it right, set it up right. I think Ace Hood is a superstar. I love his work ethic, I think he’s a very talented young man and he gonna be a big superstar in this business and I wanted to be the one to help him become that. It was important to me.” (MTV)
