One day after D.C. native Wale released his third major label album — his second on Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group — it’s only fitting we dedicate this week’s “DMV Spotlight” to the artist that has opened the door to the national Hip-Hop game through his music.
“The Gifted” — which is online & in stores now — shows us that Wale has hit his stride as a lyricist … his most polished work to date.
One thing that stands out is no matter the “hate” he receives, no one reps for their region like Wale.
The song “LoveHate Thing,” is a perfect example of that and describes his passionate relationship with his hometown.
“The Gifted” features 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Nicki Minaj, Jerry Seinfeld and more.
