New Hot Joints: Wale

March 9, 2008

I know I’m a little late to this party, but I’ve got to put cats up on this man Wale.


He’s out of DC.  His style is hot, his metaphors are tight, he knows his history, he hits you with comedy, he seems to have to total package.  Raafman from the comments put me up on him, and I have to admit…at first I didn’t think I’d be down.  I listened to one track just to get a feel, then another, then another.  Before I knew it I listened to the whole damn mixtape top to bottom.

Here’s a taste of what he’s working with on W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E.

No hook, no pause.  The cat just straight rips it for three minutes.

I didn’t want to put up this one, but Wale gets loose on this one too.  The only unfair thing is that he is paired with “The Best Rapper Alive” Lil’ Wayne.  Check out “Nike Boots”.

So his next project is “The Mixtape About Nothing”…a Seinfeld tribute.  Bound to be hot, right?


I think this kid is the future.  Hopefully he doesn’t fall into the “super hot lyricist” bucket where he never breaks into real success like a Lupe or a Canibus.

Don’t take my word for it.  Download his free mixtape, “100 Miles and Running” here.
