Wale in Gentlemen’s Quarterly

wale-gqwale_02_logo

They’re running a piece on Wale in the June issue of GQ (with Christian Bale on the cover). Here’s an excerpt:

The Multitaskingest Rookie in Rap

Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, now 24, cut his teeth as an 18-year-old by jumping onstage to kick rhymes with D.C.-area go-go bands. A self-released single, “Good Girls,” found its way to Mark Ronson, who signed Wale to his label, which led to a management deal with Jay-Z’s company Roc Nation. Now, finally, his first official album is finished—and Attention Deficit might be the most sonically adventurous major-label hip-hop debut ever. With production from Ronson, Cool & Dre, and even Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, the upbeat album has tribal go-go drums, throwback horns, walls of sound from Sitek, and a live-band feel developed over countless club dates. And like a young Jay-Z or Kanye, Wale has a crystal-clear, jocular flow—They keep sayin’ “whale” but my name Wah-lay / Hos call me Mr. Never-Wear-the-Same-Thang—that puts him leaps ahead of his freshman competitors.

    In Wale’s case, he was at the MVA not the DMV…

    i was tryna make a joke replacing “ziti” with “titty”, but they were all lame.

    but this is mathematically valid.

    That was a decent mixtape… but that new single he has Chillin is wack as fuck! I think this dude gets soo much love & exposure b/c nobody has ever blown up from DC in the hiphop game. Nobody outside of DMV is feelin his shit, and even in DC he doesn’t represent the reality of the city. The 2 best artists in the DMV are Kayzon & Mayne
    Hipster Rap = Wack!!
