hott traxxx: W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E. (featuring JUSTICE)

Mark my words: WALE is the premier rapper of the future. Hailing from DC, Wale has been honing his rhymes and rhythms since ’05 with prolific intensity that cannot help but remind me of the passion seen early in the careers of hip-hop gods WEEZY F. BABY or even MR. WEST himself. It is precisely this excitement and charisma that caught the attention of notable producer MARK RONSON, who helped him launch a a viral digital mixtape, helping him secure a Nike endorsement and peak interest from Interscope execs. The future for WALE appears to be as bright as ever; after officially signing on to Interscope, he started his own blog and received featured slots on many high profile albums such as THE ROOTS’ Rising Down and a new project in the works headed by none other than the death-defying Travis Barker. Believe me when I say Wale is about to BLOW UP HARD.
