    Regardless, off the strength of his mixtapes and the fact that he’s a fellow nigerian I’ll be buying 3 copies of ADD.

  5. Sun Dont Shine Says:

    Real good ish of XXL even though half the mag reads like Jay-Z’s portfolio.

    Urban legend is his most lyrical album

    T.I.P was going off on that album. Around that time they was calling him the down south Jay-Z, he could’ve rode that wave and had success, but I like how he didn’t live off of that co-sign and did his thing, he ended up still being one of the biggest rap stars od this decade

    Props to T.I for ending lil flip career too, I swear I hated that nigga, lol
    ^^

    yeah, That & Trap Muzik are his best IMO. one of the few artists that debut was not his best that too.

    When I moved to TX niggas LOVED Flip. He had some shit though You have to admit. I was never that big of a fan of houston music at that time til I hear Chamillionaire.

    =======================
    How does mediocre music like that make it onto a store shelf?

    Who’s running shit over there?

  17. Big_seth Says:

    DAMN. Wale is my age, 24. I thought that nigga was at least 28.

    I need to step my success game up. LOL. He in magazines & shit

  18. Big Homie Says:

    Yea Wale do look like he’s 35 lol

    *daps all*

  19. cOLD Says:

    Yea Wale do look like he’s 35 lol

    *daps all*

    ^ forget about his looks, the niggas raps are subpar at best. XL? fuck me (pause)

  20. Joe 88 Says:

    When I moved to TX niggas LOVED Flip. He had some shit though You have to admit

    ^Yea, I can admit that, his “undaground legend” album was a 4 out of 5, no bullshit, that shit was flames (at the time) chamillionaire was on that album, but he was only singing, the track “you see it” still knocks.

    LF: I’m listening to 400 degreez right now, and this shit is taking me back, I was like 13 when this dropped and I vividly remember being in my first period class after the “ha” video premiered on MTV, ninjas was like “you seen that “ha” video yesterday? Everyone saw it, and besides me, only one person was feeling it (n) I swear next week, everyone was rocking that shit, that was the beginning of the end for the gold tank boys.

    Cosign. Exhibit A sounds like a beat Free wouldve murdered.

  23. Joe 88 Says:

    Oh yeah, Wale is average, I really hate that song he got with lady gaga. Every bar is a average metaphor, how lame is that?

    LF: My onxy album “shut em down” just got finish downloading, bout to live in 98 for the rest of the day.

    Rob & Vic FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. cOLD Says:

    these new school rappers are lacking something that was essential at one point. Mic presence. Where its at… So what you can rhyme a few words, make jingles, pop songs and your gimmick made it through the trial period. Wheres that Ka-boom guess who stepped in the room type shit. XL? FOH.

  28. Joe 88 Says:

  43. TheCo!!inB Says:

    I know Just heard the beat for “All My Life” and was like F.M.L. cause if you really listen to Just’s progression as a producer he started going in with the live drums and drum programming after that, but initially I know he had to have the sour milk face when Free played that one for him….i’da walked into the b studio and cried. Bink! MURDERED that beat.

  47. smh Says:

    tha unfounded level of hate on dis blog for wale is insane. even when positive shit come out ppl still knockin on em. y’all sayin he’s an average spitta? i’d quote his shit but it’d b wasted on y’all, u gonna hate anyways.

    good look wale, lookin forward to COPIN ur album

  48. Big_seth Says:

    I’m def coppin this album though. I don’t see why people don’t like him.

  49. b-ease Says:

    Word up.

  50. Streetztalk Says:

    RT @Wale: i love how the nahright commentors are callin my album trash before they heard a second frm it..it shows u people hate bcuz they want to lol

    #noshots or #shots

    You be da judge (c) Hitz from da street

  51. Big_seth Says:

    Wale,

    if you reading.

    Some people that frequent this site are fans of yours. Stop lumping all of us together. We don’t all think alike.

    Thats wack.

  52. Big_seth Says:

    It really sounds dumb to generalize over 100 people who come in & out of this site throughout the day on a regular basis. Just because kza & cOLD make 50 comments about how Wale is wack in one post don’t mean we all feel that way.

    These blog rappers need to smarten up. they have their own opinions just like I do.

  53. trees Says:

    wale talmbout yall on Twitter. lmao kidcudi hopped on wales sick trying to calm him down

  54. trees Says:

    that’s laaaaaaaaame

  55. trees Says:

    wale doesn’t sell more than 25k first week

  56. 40th-n-Lenox Says:

    Better yet:

    “I came up in ya face, BOOM POW SURPRISE!!! OHHHH!!!” > “You got a lot of cars? Well, I got a lot.”

  57. kween of kweenz Says:

    Lol, Wale is hurt. That’s what he gets for generalizing the Nah Right population.

  58. Aziactic Says:

    Man oh man…..this is what our kids have to look forward too. Flip-flop Hip-Hop!!!!!! I remenber the days when the Wu-tang wasnt’s nothing to f**k with. When Nas came out with “it was written” When i dreamed about sugar hill’s!! When it wasnt about the money. Hip-Hop is no longer an art form. Any one can do it

  59. Aziactic Says:

    It just me against the world……(silence)

  60. ahh, sweet dude! Says:

    Wale – Attention Deficit review by XXL…

    saw this over at Nah Right… although i can’t remember the last time i was fiending for an album based strictly off of a rating given to them by a magazine. wale is cool to me, but definitely seems like the type of cat that’s going to …

  61. Asparaghost Says:

    nah, i see where he coming from..the wale hate is consistent here and only here on Nahright..its like a dissed the site or sumtin…dude is far from average..there some type of bias or somthing going o here..maybe most of nahright commentators are from DC and its that old school “hometown hate” idk.

    for the record..ima cop

  62. d203hustle Says:

    From now on niggaz that got dreads cease to rock fitteds. Ol hat 4 times bigga than they dome wayne head ass bammas

  63. Jeffro Says:

    I have Wale’s new mixtape and it was a good first listen, but now I only can really fucks with like 3 songs and its more for the beat…I want to like him but he likes himself too much, pause, and its unwarranted. Like back in the day, when ghost was feeling himself on supreme, I was like yeah, he can do that and its the truth. But that was because he deserved it, all these rappers were worried about bling and shit and he came out with a muhhhfuggin robe on and a bird on his wrist…straight gangster ish…but that was then, this is now…

    and, Why are these skinny jean rappers so narcissistic? It doesn’t really vibe with their emo outifts or their real characters….

    BOB > the rest of the freshman class X 2

    easy.

  64. Sameseahmed Says:

    i hate doing this but why hate. why? does it make you feel better? it must because you aren’t changing anyones mind by saying it sucks. this nygga is doing better than everyone here who is hating. “hating is the insecure’s medicine, insecure people need someone to feel better than” Wale

  65. obi Says:

    wale’s paycheck > nahright haters

  66. Rolling Stone Blasts ‘Attention Deficit’ | The Rap Up Says:

    […] hey, at least he got an XL from XXL. farkItButton(“Rolling+Stone+Blasts+%26%238216%3BAttention+Deficit%26%238217%3B”, […]

  67. nofrillz Says:

    im not biased. a mixtape about nothing & back 2 the feature were superb. attention deficit simply is nowhere near as good as those. to me its distinctly average and no more
