Default Wale

Anyone listen to him?

I downloaded his Mixtape About Nothing a while ago and have been digesting it, and overall it's very solid but not quite excellent in my views. Bizarrely, it is a concept album centred on Wale's love of Seinfeld, with a lot of samples from the show opening and book-ending tracks.

Lyrically he's pretty a mixed bag, some verses are excellent but others sound fairly clumsy, although I've bothered to let the lyrics sink in on a few tracks, so I'm not a brilliant judge right now. The production is strong, but sometimes sounds a little generic.

At the moment my favourite track is The Cramer, which opens with Michael Richards insane rant and goes on to examine race relations. Pretty standard stuff, but the pulsing production is great.

He has other albums out, but I haven't heard any. Any tips on his other work would be appreciated.

Ok, well...

Get 100 Miles and Running.
You will want to PERSONALLY thank Wale after hearing that mixtape.
That's DEFINITELY his best work.

Wale is completely hit or miss, but I'm still waiting anxiously on Attention: Deficit

Wale - Family Affair | Hip Hop Songs > HipHopDX.com

His wordplay is usually pretty dope. But sometimes he definitely just blows it. If his album is similar to the song above that just dropped, I'll be happy.

The original version of that song without Lady Gaga is a million times better. I'll up it if you want.

BTTF leaked. It's a mixtape so I'm assuming it can be posted.

Really as long as it checks out on here RIAA Radar: Home or isn't officially released it's fine.

I've been listening to the Back To The Feature mixtape quite a bit since it dropped on Friday.
