In between films, we’ll keep the streets hot with The Gangsta Grillz Mixtape and we’ll most likely release Vado’s album immediately after. Vado got the streets on smash, and in Harlem, he's got an unbelievable buzz. Everybody in Harlem already knows what it is,” Cam’ron continued “Between the films and the music coming soon on U.N. and Dipset West, we gonna keep the 'hood in a frenzy.”
