TURN it UP Tuesdays : Wale "Pretty Girls"

Self-proclaimed "Ambassador of Rap for the Capital," Washington, D.C

As early as 2006 Wale has had a string of hits in D.C.-Maryland-Virginia area. Much of his work is inspired by 80's go-go music. It is my understanding, this artists has produced about 10 mixtapes in his time. I came across the title of this track via a twitter page, looked it up and have been playing it every since. The following track also features Gucci Mane (I know he is everywhere). You can really feel the go-go era in this song. Wale has an undeniable flow that is metaphoric yet enticing. This beat makes you want to "beat your feet", even if you're from down south. It also makes all the "Pretty Girls" want to "clap clap, like this".

If you are looking for a new track to get you moving this week, I recommend this download. Click the player below to hear the track.

Wale's debut album "Attention Deficit" is set to hit stores November 10, 2009.

  1. His album is pretty good. Check out "Shades" feat. Chrissette Michele. I smell a blog or two coming about the subject matter of that particular song. Matter of fact it is directly related to your Sammy Sosa post.
