Vado and Raheem DeVaughn make some gangsta Quiet Storm hip-hop with It’s You. Check it out.

This one is surprisingly dope.  Vado and Raheem mesh much better than you would expect.

Christmas in Harlem

It’s official. Christmas in Harlem is now the latest (and maybe last) G.O.O.D. Friday gift from Kanye West.

There was an earlier version of this a few days ago, but this is the fully mastered version.  It features CyHi Da Prynce, Pusha T, Big Sean, Musiq Soulchild and Teyana Taylor.  Thank you for an incredible year of music, Kanye.

Ever heard of OUN? You will soon. He sounds like a hungry Jadakiss…but maybe even nicer….

Check out this freestyle, starting at 2:22. Even if he wrote it and rehearsed it 100 times, it’s ill…if he is coming off the top, MCs beware.  Vado looks like his feelings were hurt.
