    Because Vado has an energy and a confidence that so few of his elders display anymore, Slime Flu instantly stands out by recalling a very specific late-90s moment. Vado, a guy who probably shouldn't be asked to carry a full-length by himself at this point in his career, makes it work anyway by doing the little things right.

    So ultimately the way I'll sum up Slime Flu is like this--I liked more than I hated and if his name came up on a mixtape in the near future I wouldn't skip over his track.

    Slime Flu is ultimately an album for unabashed consumers of all things early-2000s NYC rap. Vado's performance is fleet and tight, clocking in at a little under an hour.

    Slime Flu has its charms, acting as an energetic reminder of insider-y, turn-of-the-century New York hip-hop long gone: sample-laden, ignorant, and wealth-obsessed.
