When I first heard Wale “Lotus Flower Bomb” featuring Miguel, I was like who is this guy?!
I love Wale’s sound, his flow and his approach to hip hop. His second album “The Gifted” is out now featuring Bad and his latest single called “LoveHate Thing,” which is my new JAM! Take a listen:
Wale has a lot to celebrate right now, along with J. Cole, Kanye West and Mac Miller. They all just released chart-topping records this summer. Their combined success has made history. Billboard reports that J. Cole’s Born Sinner came in at number one this week, closely followed by Wale’s The Gifted and Kanye West’s Yeezus.
This is the first time three rap albums have scored multiple top spots for consecutive weeks since 2002 when Nelly, Eminem, Nas, and the compilation Irv Gotti Presents The Inc ruled the charts.
