0 Cam'ron Says Vado Won't Be A Part Of XXL's Freshman 11' (Audio)

Last year, alot of East-Coast rap fans were a bit upset with Vado's XXL Freshmen snub. Well, it seems that the young Diplomat won't grace the cover this year either. During a recent interview with DJ Drama, Dipset CEO Cam'ron explained why Vado will likely choose not to be a part of any "Freshman Orientation".

***On a side note, I think XXL's "Freshmen" series has the most influence of any hip-hop publication on up-and-coming artists careers since the days of The Source Magazine's "Unsigned Hype" column. Rappers shouldn't let their egos get in the way and mess up a good thing... a good look is a good look.
