One of the best intros I have ever seen in a video:

Drake “Best I Ever Had”

Great Sample:

Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds – Fallin’ In Love

A Dead Bat in Paraguay

High Heels and Dirty Deals

“Know you got a roommate
Call me when its no one there
Put the key under the mat
And you know I’ll be over there
(Yup) I’ll be over there
Shawty, I’ll be over there
I’ll be hitting all the spots that u ain’t even know was there”

Not the best rhyme scheme, but gets the job done I guess.

“Sex, Love, Pain
Baby I be on that tank shit
Buzz so big i could probably sell a blank disk
When my album drop
Bitches will buy it for the picture
And n$ggas will buy it too and claim they got it for they sister
Magazine paper girl
But money ain’t the issue
They bring dinner to my room and ask me to initial
She call me the referee
Cause I be so official
My shirt ain’t got no stripes but I can make yo pussy whistle
Like the Andy Griffith theme song
And who told you to put them jeans on
double cup love
You the one i lean on
Feeling for a fix then you should really get yo pheen on
Yea just know my condo is the crack spot
Every single show she out there repping like a mascot
Get it from the back
And make yo fucking bra strap pop
All up in yo slot until the n$gga hit the jackpots”

Wale Q&A About Nothing

Wale Q&A About Nothing

Thanks to David for The Q&A About Nothing

(Here is my Facebook, New Twitter and The G Manifesto Facebook Page)

Black Ice Zippo Lighter

Honey: What’s going on?
Wale: Up early in the morning, Twittering. Seeing what everyone is talking about.

Tell me about your album.
It’s here. It’s done

How many tracks made the album?
14 tracks.

What story are you telling on your album?

I am actually glad that you asked that. My album is real life. It’s about relationships, the good side, the bad side. It explores relationships with women. There’s a record I have with Marsha Ambrosia, formerly of Floetry, called “Her Diary” about a woman scorned. Me, being a young single guy, you meet women, you know they want to like you but they can’t because they have been scorned. Basically it is a woman that is incapable of a first impression. She is going to see what she wants to see no matter what. If you’re too bad, then your bad. If you’re good, then your too good. Women with impossible standards, nothing that you do matters because she sees what she wants to see. Then you have songs about me being imperfect, or songs about me analyzing the world. It is a personal album from start to finish. The album is a combination of dope lyricism and reality.

What artists made the album?
K’nann and Bun B.

Is Kanye on the album? It seems like he would be perfect for the album.
He didn’t make it. I am going to leave it at that.

No, we can’t just leave it at that.

I called, and he didn’t call me back. Want me to call him right now?

Yes.
He posted me on his blog yesterday.

That is pretty huge.
[Ed note: Wale calls and leaves a voicemail thanking Kanye for the blog post and let's him know about a record he wants him to hear.]

I would love to see a Wale and Kanye track. I follow you on Twitter, and one of your recent tweets was “don’t you feel like all the same rappers are on the same remixes?”

Yeah, the Rap Club. I feel like they are not trying to let the new guys break through, but it is what it is. I am not waiting for anyone to do anything for me. I came in this game by myself. I am in business with the most successful rapper of all time [Jay-Z] and I don’t wait for him.

Just grinding?
Just grinding.

In September, you were on the cover of XXL with 10 other new artist: the Top 10 Freshman. Tell me about that. Who are your people from that cover?
Cudi is my mans. Currensy is my man. Ace Hood is my man. B.O.B, Mickey Factz I am cool with….

What about Charles Hamiliton? What is that situation you got going on there?
Charles is umm you know…

I don’t know. Dont’ give me the PC answer.
He is a label mate. He makes interesting music and we will leave it at that because we are at Interscope Records right now.

It’s Drake Mania. How do you feel about Drake Mania?
This is just the way of the world. He was more famous than me and Cudi. He didn’t need XXL for people to check for him. Cudi didn’t need XXL because he had a huge record out. I needed XXL. I am the man where I am from. I’ve been selling out shows for five years in [Washington,] DC, but I needed XXL to take me beyond DC. Drake already had more MySpace plays than me. He is the Zach Morris of Degrassi. Drake was a lot of people’s guilty pleasure, especially girls. He is a light-skinned dude from Canada, his own country, and he is bff with Lil Wayne. It’s going to work. When the nigga came to my show at Highline Ballroom, and no one knew who he was, I knew he was going to blow. I am not mad. His success has nothing to do with me. It doesn’t hinder me at all. I don’t want to be an actor. I don’t want be a singer. I just want to rap and connect with the people, man. I am a dark-skinned African dude. I am not a clean cut pretty boy dude. Sometimes I am scruffy. Sometimes I am a pretty. Sometimes I am fly. It just who I am. Women dig me, but I am not about to sit up here and blush, and laugh for the camera. It’s cool. Cudi, me and Drake are different things. Their success has nothing to do with me

Coming from the new class, do you feel like they are your competition?
Absolutely not.

Why?
We’re separate genres of rap music.

What genre do you fall under?
I am unboxable.

Because you play with a live go-go band?

I just want to rap, make good music. I don’t strategically plan to make music that is ‘Yo, this is for the bitches’ [or] ‘this is for the niggas’ [or] ‘this is for the college kids.’ Nah, I just want to make the music and connect with the people.

Tell me about your Cool N Dre experience.

I love working with them. I am the most inspired when I work with them. I write quickly.

What about them inspires you?
Their energy, their attitude, their work ethic and being in Miami. I need scandal, don’t I.

Scandal is good. It’s the gift and the curse. What do you want? An R&B chick, pop singer, an ex stripper? You wanna put someone in a sex tape?
You’re calling shots

Not at all.
[phone rings] That’s a scandal calling me now.

She is not big enough.

Yo, tell these R&B chicks to stop calling me.

No R&B ladies.

No I’m chilling. I am from Chocolate City, so that is what I love.

“But when I’m not for the feminine

Against the recession

An entrepenuer with ways to get more money
So don’t be trippin whenever you see me throw money
Hah. It’s just a little bit of show money
But if you want me to get it wet another ways
Then I’ma have to beat it up the first time I play with you girl
Touch your ears and your neck and play with your pearls
Then I reach up in your pants and play with you pearl?
When I lay you down you aint gotta be frontin or fakin
On me baby cause I know it takes the right touch
I ain’t stoppin til you wet up the covers
Because I gotta keep on fuckin til I see a lot of white stuff
Now you got me excited I can’t hold it
I’m feelin it coming I’m bout to let off an explosion
Let it ride when I see you I’m ? and shakin
When I touch your body you catchin convulsions
Thats when I know I’m doin what I’m supposed to
You chose me. I chose you.
Don’t think I can get it wet? I told you
Come and let the Twist rain down on you”

When I flip it to a track speed ?
Talkin about a beautiful figure
Astonishing as greek mythology
Body be just like a girl in uh..
What’s that movie? nevermind
Let me enter your atmosphere
As you enter my world
And lemme touch that booty
I can’t believe that your momma that cold
Her daughter got such an astonishing soul
You need a modeling role
Still a playa know you got it
When you climbin from the bottom
To the top of that pole
Cause you can pop and control
Your fatty’s so accurate
When I’m smackin it
It’s makin me say
“What I gotta do to get with that?”
When it come to makin it rain,
I can get it wet
When it come to cuttin the monkey
I can get it wet
You gone see me to ya baby
You need a better man
Here come the politics,
I’ma be your weatherman
Cause everytime I’m lookin up
And I see more ass
I’ma constantly see
Rain in the forcast
This-a-way that-a-way

[VERSE 1]
I was taught never stop, till the money comes,
Now look ya boy life sweeter than a honey bun,
Don’t think I mean sweet like sweeties,
I amputate you n$ggas, I’m diabetes,
And I get the girls wet like bikinis,
Quirt like a uzi on a hot like Jacuzzi water,
Waiter bring me another drink for me and my n$ggas,
We made it through another week and that’s Bantom
We just trying to get by, trying to make it to the top,
But the mountain so high,
Good thing I know how to rock climb,
Swinging over you n$ggas, like monkeys, I find vines,
My rhymes crush grapes, fine wine,
Yes boy, I’m out my mind,
It’s be a billionaire, or die trying,
And I stay higher than a high fly,
Can I get a high five?
You see the dollas bitch I flaunt em, if flaunt em,
Got the boy lookin like he got Christmas ornaments on him, ya dig?
And my cars are imported, want it,
The whips are foreign, they want them deported,
I’m a die hard rockstar, if ya looking for birds, I know where the flocks are,
Money long, so I know where the cops are,
And I stay in a chick buns, I’m a hot dog,

[CHORUS]
These are the days of our lives,
Like coke, they want us to straight drop, but we rise (hands up)
We just trying to get by, they wanna see us broke,
But they won’t, we on the grind (hands up)
They wanna see us fall, but we ball out of control,
Living above law, so fuck em all,
(I said) They wanna see us fall, but we ball out of control,
Living above law, so fuck em all (fuck em)

[VERSE 2]
Yea, I mean that to the fullest,
Nobody wearing diapers but they want us doing pullups,
Want us doing push ups in a yard full of N$ggas, We just out tryin’ to feed a squall for the n$ggas,
Shoutout to my squall full of n$ggas,
This is for the hood, I’m nuttin without ya n4ggas,
Look like the tide, we rise high,
They wanna see us broke like the levys but they won’t, we level 5,
And like..pedal bikes, I pedal bye,
Right by ya, n$ggas can’t flatten my..tire,
That’s why i stay high,
So high, sky’s the limit but you can touch the moon if u try,
Now the moon’s mine,
Basically what I’m saying is, you could be the sun but my moon blocks your shine,
You can be the 1 but the 2 spot is mine,
Do what you do, I don’t mind waiting in line (now)
Knowing I’m not far behind, it’s cool (cool)
Patience is a virtue (yes)
I do it big for my n$ggas that can’t, n$ggas that got caught in the rain and left damp (wet)
For my n$ggas treating jail like camp, this song is a piece of mail Santana sent (yea)
So holla at me if you got my letter, I’m signing off hope you got my letter (Dipset)

[CHORUS]
These are the days of our lives,
Like coke, they want us to straight drop, but we rise (hands up)
We just trying to get by, they wanna see us broke,
But they won’t, we on the grind (hands up)
They wanna see us fall, but we ball out of control,

New Wale Mixtape: Back To The Feature – 9th Wonder

» 23 June 2009 » In hip hop » No Comments

New Wale Mixtape: Back To The Feature – 9th Wonder

“This is only for the Hip-Hop lovers. You want that bullshit, turn the radio on.” – Wale

Click Here for Cocaine Cowboys

Click Here for Cocaine Cowboys 2: Hustlin’ with the Godmother

Click Here for The G Manifesto’s The Top Ten Hip-Hop Tracks of All Time

The long awaited Back To The Feature mixtape from DC RAPS GREAT HOPE dropped on Friday. Primarily produced by ex-Little Brother beatsmith 9th Wonder, the tape is Wale’s bid for true hip hop legitimacy while simultaneously pushing a shameless and gross radio single. After the jump are my song-by-song first listen knee jerks on the tape.


“Cyphr” f/ Young Chris, Freeway & Beanie Sigel

So it seems Wale has been adopted into the State Property extended family. It makes sense, he’s comfortable rapping with them. Still it’s unfortunate that he’s pulling them closer to the rap-about-nothing territory he occupies when they’re so much better at rapping about shooting people and eating at Boston Market.

Click Here for Cocaine Cowboys

Click Here for Cocaine Cowboys 2: Hustlin’ with the Godmother

Click Here for The G Manifesto’s The Top Ten Hip-Hop Tracks of All Time

“5 Minutes” f/ Skyzoo
Didn’t Wale already use this sample? Seemingly both artists only took five minutes to write their verses. That’s not a diss, that’s the concept of the record. Skyzoo comes off nicely.

“Night Life” f/ Young Chris & Tre
“I ain’t worried ’bout you little n****s blogging.” Blog rappers are constantly saying stuff like this on their mixtapes but if they were truly unconcerned with blogs then they wouldn’t have to mention blogging in their raps at all. Something tells me that Wale and Chris have been frantically googling “Back To The Feature” all weekend. This song has been out for months. It is still very hot. These are the type of records Wale sounds best on – upbeat tracks that nod vaguely to the go-go influence but aren’t totally go-go records.

“Hot Shyt” f/ Peedi Crakk, Black Thought, Tu Phace & Young Chris
Another Philly posse cut. Halfway through the tape this track marks eight Philly guest verses before a single DC area one. (Not counting UCB’s Tre who is basically Wale’s live in hype/hook man. I heard he sings the chorus to Wale’s pancakes every morning.) Plus there were three from Brooklyn, one from New Orleans and one from Newark. The fact that I’m doing math in my mixtape review doesn’t bode well for the quality of the tape or my own sanity.

Continue Reading

With the album’s theme, Wale believes that collaboration drives the market today. “I think people have let features and cosigns run Hip Hop.” Still, he doesn’t feel as fondly about cosigns as he does traditional collaboration. “Anybody who knows me and knows the newer [group of] rappers knows that I don’t have that major cosign. I haven’t been fortunate enough to go on tour with anybody and things of that nature. All those dudes, I support [and appreciate] what they’re doing, but my thing is different.” Even as an artist signed to super-producer Mark Ronson’s Alido Records, Wale admits that such assistance doesn’t impress the typical Hip Hop listener, “Mark Ronson is something different. It’s not like people are checkin’ for me ’cause of Mark; I didn’t get Mark’s fan-base. Hip Hop is too heavy on co-signs. It’s too much! Certain co-signs can just jump-start a career, and I don’t think it should be like that. I think it should be more about the music.”

Although the guest artist fuels the theme of Back To The Feature, don’t expect to see this translate into the personnel for Attention: Deficit, the DMV rapper’s debut album. “On my album, I only have Bun B and K’Naan on there. I just kept that [list] real short with the features, as far as the rappers go. I don’t count somebody singin’ as a feature, ’cause I can’t sing,” Wale told DX. The album is due in the third quarter of 2009, on Alido/Interscope.

Sharp – Wale Ft. Torae & Kingpin Slim

Known for working with an assortment of sounds and producers, Wale also told DX about the significance of him now working with the Murs, Jay-Z and Erykah Badu producer. “I just wanted to have the traditional 9th Wonder sound, to kind of show my diversity. 9th is someone that I definitely think is one of the greats. I wanted to show people how I could rock on [some] of his [beats]. At the same time, I’m giving a little bit of light to newer producers I’m workin’ with.” Back To The Feature also includes beats by BKS, Mikey Mike and Mark Ronson. “9th Wonder is the meat and potatoes of the mixtape, the focal point. I got 11 9th Wonder songs on there; I got 12 from [others].”

Wale further explained where Back To The Feature fits in his mixtape catalog, which also boasts early work, Paint A Picture and Hate Is The New Love, “My manager (Daniel Weisman) wrote me a whole write-up of the mixtape, and he basically said this mixtape is just like 100 Miles & Running, but with features. He [said] that A Mixtape About Nothing was too intense, too powerful, too aggressively intense. This one is laid back Hip Hop [where you can] roll a J or whatever you want to do. Sit back, relax and listen to it. And I hope you like it.”

Dodge City Style.
