Wale’s upcoming Attention Deficit

with one comment

Don’t pronounce his name as whale, his name Wale,as in ballet and he’s about to bring a new feel to the rap world. But doesn’t everyone say they’re going to bring something to new the game? What make Wale different from any other rapper? Well for one he’s Nigerian and number 2 he’s breaking into the mainstream. These two ideas are one in the same really. There have been many Nigerian rappers that the world has not know about but the fact that this Wale character is a first generation American is not something we see everyday. This slight cultural difference means he doesn’t necessarily have the same story as other rappers.

His story has been hailed as one of the best by GQ magazine whom they named as the best in this new “freshman” class of rappers (i.e., Drake, Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa, Asher Roth etc). And with his album being dropped around the same time as his competitors it’ll be interesting to see who comes on top. Here is a track from his anticipated album Attention Deficit and a review from XXL magazine.
