In a recent interview with MTV, Timbaland announced he is leaving hip-hop. Apparently, he’s switching genres to satisfy his fans, most of whom are more likely to listen to Madonna or John Mayer than Nas or Jay-Z. As he explained to MTV: “After my last album, I know where my bread and butter is at. […]
Wale, the widely-acclaimed D.C. rapper, has finally dropped his debut album, Attention Deficit. The darling of the indie hip-hop crowd (are they still called backpackers?), Wale has spent the past two or three years meticulously engineering a reputation as a talented lyricist and astute pop culture scrutineer. From “doing justice to Justice,” to dropping a […]
Analog Giant, a blog I tend to like for the most part, posted this monstrosity of a video. To be fair to them, they didn’t endorse it at all. This is a Wale and Lady Gaga collabo. I think my head just snapped thinking about it. Up until this point I’ve been a fan of […]

I haven’t given it a listen yet, but it’s up and available for download thanks to Elitaste. Click here to go download it. […]
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past year, or you just recently decided to give the whole internet thing a shot and this is the first website you’ve ever visited, you’ve heard about Wale. Even 4080 is on the ball when it comes to this dude; check out an earlier post Angry […]
D.C. native Wale (pronounced Wall-ay) is supposed to be the next big thing in hip-hop. A quick youtube search provides a bunch of his videos, and I have to say it’s not entirely my style. No matter what, I guess you have to admit that he does have some talent. Check out the freestyle below. […]
