Vado Names His Top 5 Harlem Rappers (Video)

Posted By on April 13, 2011

     Dipset member, and newly signed Interscope Records artist, Vado recently revealed his top five favorite Halem rappers of all time, ranging from his fellow Diplomat members to the late great Big L. During his first three choices, Vado paid homage to Big L and then found space to include Cam'ron and Ma$e.

"For starters, I have to go with Big L because he was, in my eyes, the first one to get off on the hood. You know, he had a chance to take it far, but unfortunately, you know, rest in peace Big L. He's my number one…Definitely, I'd have to go with Cam for what he did for Harlem. You know, he was the only artist that made it out of Harlem and took a whole lot of people after him, that made them successful…Ma$e put the scope on Harlem, you know? When he first came out with [Diddy] and everything. He's one of the best that really went international with it and just had Harlem like Beverly Hills, somewhere that they wanted to come to."
