Before Wale, there wasn’t much talk about Washington, DC in hip hop, because no rappers from there had mainstream success. All of this changed when Wale broke through. Initially alongside Mark Ronson and signed to Interscope Records, Wale rose to fame.
But, Wale eventually left Interscope Records with Maybach Music, where he got his mainstream looks. Since then, Wale has held it down as one of the biggest rappers in the game. In a way, Wale took Fabolous’ spot, recording singles for the ladies.
Wale has been working on The Album About Nothing since the promotional run for The Gifted back in 2013. This album saw Wale working alongside Jerry Seinfeld, something no other rapper has ever done. With the album due on March 31, Wale released the cover for The Album About Nothing.
