I have been sleeping ON Wale

Yes, I know I am a little late to the party but Wale's debut last year sort of fell under my DJ radar.

My fave track from his album Attention Deficit would have to be 90210. A funky and rigid parody on the lifestyles of the (wannabe) rich and famous. If anything it's really just a PSA for young girls disguised in a hot hip-hop track. The song addresses coke addiction, eating disorders and all that good stuff.

I have to say that Wale brings something a little different and quite refreshing to the table. He is one of two of my favorite hip-hop debuts from the past year (the other being kid cudi;)
