DOWNLOAD MP3 Wale-LetANiggaKnowftChinxDrugsFatzprodbyRicoBeats.mp3
Summary: This is the fun high energy Wale that I love. Feel the beat.
About Artist: Wale is a DC rapper who was once one of my favorite rappers. He really makes two different types of music, the original playful kinda rapping and his new Rick Ross / Maybach Music gold chains and car rapping. I have no clue who Chinx Drugs or Fatz are. I’ve heard the name Rico Beats before and I’m sure he’s worked with a lot of artists but the only thing I remember him from is Nicki Minaj’s Roman Reloaded.
About Song: This song is one of the better tracks off of Wale’s 2012 mixtape Folarin which was really hit or miss with about 4 tracks that I really liked. (Bad, a song posted here a couple days ago, being another one).
I really like the beat especially in the pre-chorus in places like 1:27 where it then drops into the chorus. I just really feel the beat to this one. Plus I like the kind of obscured singing in the background track.

Summary: I don’t normally like ‘these kind’ of hip hop songs, but theres something about this track that gets me so hype (and I’m pretty sure its not the misogynist rapping).
About Artist: DJ Drama is mainly a mixtape DJ. He’s done about a bajillion mixtapes most notably the Gangsta Grillz series and Lil Wayne’s Dedication mixtapes. Wale is a DC rapper who I used to really love but has kind of taken a different artistic path lately (you can find a lot of Wale on this blog). Tyga is part of Lil Wayne’s Young Money. I think his songs are really hit or miss, he definitely has talent but so many of Young Money’s songs are just so dumb. Rosco Dash is a young ATL rapper who most famous for his song All The Way Turnt Up. The song was produced by Boi 1da who I really really like and who obviously makes this song what it is since the rapping is not amazing.
About Song: This song is off of DJ Drama 2012 album (yes album) Quality Street Music. The album is pretty good and of course has a crazy number of features from Ludacris and 2 Chainz to Kendrick Lamar and Wiz Khalifa.
My favorite part is when the intro drops into the beat. It just gives me that party energy!

Summary: Another little love track for valentine’s day. Note this song isn’t exactly a happy love song but I like it none the less. It makes me happy to know that at least the line “I never made love, but I sure know how to fuck” doesn’t apply to me.
About Artist: Wale used to be one of my favs but the Rick Ross kind of direction that his musical style went made me less of a fan. Wale is from DC and used to rap over some awesome go go beats from DC, his mixtape 100 Miles and Running is still one of my favorite music albums of all time.
About Song: This song was produced and sung by Tiara Thomas (who also did the vocals on one of my favorite track’s off of Wale’s mixtape More About Nothing called The Cloud). Now that I look I see I did a gregshiphop post on The Cloud HERE. On both songs she does a great job on the chorus.
Favorite Part: I really like that Tiara Thomas brings to the song. Wale’s verses aren’t spectacular but he sounds really good on a song like this. I think my favorite line is
“Bad girls ain’t no good,
and the good girls ain’t no fun,
and the hood girls want a smart nigga,
college girls all want a thug.
So it seems that we fiend what we don’t need”

Summary: Wale on some Magazeen island beat.
About Artist: Wale is a DC rapper who gearing up for the release of his sophmore album after his first album flopped due to drama with his old label. While many people are up in arms about Wale selling out to Maybach Music Group (Rick Ross’s posse), Wale’s next album Ambition has been billed as a return to Wale’s original style. The album is due out 11/1/11 and a mixtape prior to the album has been promised. Don’t know much about Magazeen (he sings the hook) except that he is an up and commer trying to break through. Tre is the lead singer of UCB (Wale’s original go-go backup band). I am a big fan of UCB’s sound and hoped for a while that the Go-Go sound would catch on nationally. Finally Black Cobain is another DC rapper (whom I really like) with much of the same rhyme style as Wale.
About Song: This song is just a random track that may appear on Wale’s ElevenOneEleven mixtape which will promote the realease date of Wale’s next album Ambition.
None really, I just like the track.

Summary:Finally some new old school Wale!
About Artist: Wale is a DC rapper representing the DMV (DC Maryland Virginia). Wale was a super popular underground rapper who many, including myself, thought would be huge. However his record label did a poor job releasing his debut album Attention Deficit and put pressure on Wale for his single to be Chillin featuring Lady Gaga who at the time hadn’t reached the level of fame she has since attained. After this disappointing release Wale withdrew from the scene a bit but cam back to release a super high quality mixtape More About Nothing. This tape gave the fans renewed hope about Wale’s potential until Wale went and signed with Maybach music, the money music group headed by the boss clown Rick Ross. I fcking hate that Wale chose to go that route especially since Wale has a really message in his music contrasted with Rick Ross’ money music message.
About Song: This song isn’t part of any project, as far as a I know, but just dropped yesterday. The song obviously is a freestyle over the 1992 Kris Kross hit Jump. Click here to watch that throwback video
Finally we get a track with Wale’s fun upbeat flow. Of course I love the original track, and coupled with Wale’s rhymes make it all the better.
