Wale's Under the Radar Hits

Raised by Nigerian parents in Washington D.C., Wale now quarterbacks the hip-hop community of our nation's capital. While he has released songs with artists ranging from Lady Gaga and Gucci Mane, some of his best work remains largely unheard of. His hits like "Chillin" and "Pretty Girls" may have risen throughout the charts and been featured on countless radio stations, however I feel they are some of his weakest songs lyrically as well as melodically.

His name is pronounced "wah-lay"

As always with this blog, I attempt to bring out the lesser known work from some of the world's best rap artists. While I could rehash and over-evaluate much of his album "Attention Deficit," I instead chose to share some songs that you probably haven't heard from this rap pioneer.
