First let me get this out of the way…Wale is pronounced “Wah-lay” not “whale”! Okay, I had to do that to inform the general public.
“Pretty girls…sunshine in the air…perfume everywhere…girls are everywhere”
Back to the throwback “jam” of the day. I know, I know. 2010 is only three years ago and it’s a borderline “throwback” at best. People have such short attention spans that I’m sure alot of music fans missed out on this hidden gem. So here I am to save the day and provide great music for the uninitiated to hear.
Wale is a very thoughtful and soulful hip hop artists. He’s a breath of fresh air for those annoyed by the rap music full of guns & drugs. Wale even has a friendship with Jerry Seinfeld. Mr. Seinfeld actually recorded the outro on Wale’s latest album “The Gifted”.
The throwback song below was one of Wale’s singles before he signed with Rick Ross’ MMG record label. So at that time Wale was a regional rapper around the D.C. and Mid-Atlantic area. In 2013 there is no question that Wale is well known all over the country by Hip Hop fans.
