Check thesaurus: “Marvelous” sums this up !

Wale can carry a full album. He keeps this album interesting and varied throughout. Lots of heart, soul, and enthusiasm. Also, guest vocalists & producers/mixers brought their A-game. Below are some personal reactions maybe not yet observed/mentioned:

- Appreciate the iTunes advance streaming.. Already liked Wale, but preview showed this album is all good/great to my liking with no filler this time.
- Wale's talent here dispels the perception that a rap artist isn't musically inclined.
- Enjoy the horns, great percussion, and creative background sounds.
- Enjoy the creative, lingering instrumentals as the songs end. No abrubt endings.
- Nice sequencing throughout, keeps my interest, esp. thrilling during seq. of 7-14.
- Big shout outs for "Gullible" and "Simple Man." Whoa!
- Inspiration IMO: Track 2: M.G. Track 7: S.R. (hint: his "Stay" alb.). Track 11: M.J. (hint: HIStory alb.).
- Track 8: Hmmm, my buddy CT in there? Hope so.

AllRight! You all sound "mmm ...aah...velus" here.


This album is going to rock the world of rap with Wale's amazing flow and meaningful lyrics... Pre-order it now!

I can't wait

I can't wait to hear Wale's third album, hopefully it will live up to the expectations. I bet it will but it will be hard for wale with all the other albums that are coming out before him, I hope he stepped his game up from the last album. I think he did tho. #thegifted

The self-proclaimed "Ambassador of Rap for the Capital," Wale (pronounced "wah-lay") was able to transcend his local sensation status and become a national rap contender using go-go-inspired hip-hop as the vehicle for his clever wordplay and music. Olubowale Victor Akintimehin was born in Washington, D.C. in 1984 to Nigerian immigrants who first arrived in America five years prior. Although the family moved to Maryland when the future rapper was ten years old, Wale was mostly raised in suburban D.C....
