Album Review: Wale, "Attention Deficit"
JimmyJazz.com addressed that Wale is “fly” in his Nike Boots in our Blog post last month, and now we can say the same for his debut album, Attention Deficit. Being named “the greatest rapper since Jay-Z,” by GQ magazine, Wale has some huge shoes to fill. The Washington D.C., native is not trying to be politically correct. Lyrically speaking, the rapper goes hard. The DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) rep and fan of “Go-Go” music discusses self insecurities, triumph, success, and love.
Ladies may refer to him as Mr. Never-Wear-Same-Thing, Attention Deficit delivers a raw emotion that Wale expresses only a woman can deliver. Female sensations Lady Gaga, Jazmine Sullivan, Chrisette Michele, Melanie Fiona and sampled Rihanna assist the visionary.
The mind of a listener is short. Wale wants to change the way music is heard.
Downloads: “Pretty Girls feat. Gucci Mane,” “Shades feat. Chrisette Michele,” “World Tour feat. Jazmine Sullivan,” and “90210.”
