2. The Wale Station

Wale is, well, Wale. He is the 28 year old rapper that is making us all look at rappers in a new light. His music speaks to me with the same tone. Take the song “Love/Hate Thing,” for example. On one hand, you’ve got the smooth, smooth undertones along with Sam Dew singing with this mellow manner about his words. Then, you’ve got Wale rapping with spitfire about the D.M.V., what he’s feeling, and most importantly, what is real. You have got to tune into this station because it brings you to a new kind of rap that makes you think and want more out of life than what meets the eye.
