I was pretty excited to see this, Drake, Wale, and Kid Cudi featured in GQ’s 2009 Man Of The Year issue. I’m clearly a huge Wale fan, Kid Cudi is also one of my favorites and Drake has fallen a bit but he was one of my favorites. I was on Bossip and the title of this post was; ‘What’s Wrong With This Picture?’ At first I just thought it was Drake’s attire obviously, I missed that one by a long shot.. well not exactaly because his attire is off but I digress. Anyhow, the post was talking about how it was slightly ‘ridiculous’ to say that they were killing gangsta rap.

In my eyes, ‘gangsta rap’ is something that will never end, but I do believe that the new wave is coming in and making everyone kind of forget about the gangsta rappers of our time. Of course people will still go ape shit over Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne and all types of goons like them but I think they will end up being some of the only ones that people will remember. Personally I don’t exactly mind, I believe that these rappers have more substance in their rhymes and it’s not strictly just metaphors,similes and personifications, or onomatopoeia’s(burr!…that is an onomatopoeia right?) Either way I’m excited for this issue to come out, I plan on purchasing. Or tearing this page out and running(holla!)

If you follow me on twitter, you knew it was coming. Not ust because I said it lls, I have been so cised(excited) for this album to drop. As soon as I got home today I immediatley bought it on itunes. Not from a biased opinion either but this album is SERIOUS! I love almost every track on here it’s crazy. One thing I’ve realized about the feedback on Wale is that I’ve heard many say that they want to like him but can’t get into him, which is straight not everyone is going to like him but they still support because they feel he has potential. And then there are the many like myself who go hard for him because we have already had the potential ‘proved’..if that makes much of any sense. I REALLY like World Tour,90210,TV In The Radio,Diary,Prescription,Mirrors, Center Of Attention, and Beautiful Bliss.

go support!!



boy my heart is frag-eel.

Chrisette Michele released her 3rd single off her album Epiphany and added a little Whale flavor to it. The video is ‘something slight’ nothing special. I kind of like Wale’s part some things I was like ‘okayyyy!’ Remember 11/10!!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Wale_9th_Wonder_Wale_Back_To_The_Feature-front-large

DC chillin’, PG chillin’, my name Wale and I came to get

Let’s start of with the basics people, it’s Wal-ay just incase some were wondering. And he’s from the DMV if you haven’t heard him say it enough. And frankly he is about to be the hottest thing. Being from this area, I have known about the up and coming rapper for 4 years now, but what I used to listen to compared to his music now is SO different. He is continuing to grow to become apart of the new wave of rappers to save hip-hop music. And after listening to this mixtape Back To The Feature you should be able to understand why. The mixtape is produced by 9th wonder, the genius behind many many Drake songs. Yeah Think Good Thoughts? That’s produced by 9th and samples Sweet Love by Anita Baker beautifully. Everything from the beats, to the lyrics is executed well. And it has a different version of his newest song Chillin featuring Lady Gaga. I began to write down my favorites but as I continue to listen I realize that it become more and more. There are a few that I’m not the biggest fan of but there are more that I highly approve of.

One track you should really listen to is Goodbye, being such and R&B junkie I love all songs that have to do with love and crap like that. Another good one is New Soul which samples the song ‘New Soul’ by Nael Yaim, whoever that is.  And! Another song that samples/covers Pete Bjorn’s song Nothing To Worry about which I love. I don’t want to say it’s the So Far Gone but it’s up there for me. This mixtape is definetley a go. Download HERE

Trey Songz feat. Drake-Invented Sex

I found the concept of this song to be pretty funny. It’s either the concept or the song in general that doesn’t surprise me. It is basically a typical Trey Songz song. It is pretty catchy though I can see it getting stuck in my head in the near future. What really bothered me about this song was Drake’s verse. He sounded so WHACK all I could think was ‘already?’

Rihanna-Te Amo

When I first saw this I was wondering why she was trying to speak spanish when she can barely even…let me stop. It didn’t blow me away nor did this song make me look at her so-called talent in a different light. The song is just blah. The concept though had me like what the hell? It’s supposed to be about a girl who loves her best friend but is not a lesbian. It just was…awkward.

Wale-Rain,Sleet,Snow

This is my favorite song out of all the three. When I first got it, it said that it featured big sean [:)] and somebody by the name of mike posner, the reason why the picture up there is of Wale and Big Sean. I was VERY excited for the big sean collabo but I didn’t get to see it =\ all is well though. The concept of this song is about shoes, Nikes to be exact I believe. I’m not a huge ‘sneakerhead’ so i really couldn’t relate to the song but it was still enjoyable. I could actually see myself looking to play this song and enjoying myself while listening to it [pause].

Wale, up coming rapper. Now many people are just not getting on to him but i’ve been hip to him for about 3 years now because he is from the DMV area. His songs have grown a lot because now he sounds more mainstream.

Wale lived in the M of DMV,Maryand he went to the HS down the street from mine so I am really trying to understand why he is repping D.C so much i this video. I mean I know MD isn’t great but damn.

The video is alright I don’t know if it’s the song or the video that bore me. But I do like the song.
