    Those songs are ancient history now though. I was speaking more in present tense as far as his music being generic.

    Im with you, he should have stuck to Go Go but he was so desperate to be a star that he let Interscope push him towards a Lady Gaga single.....

    He’s been in the game for over 10 years, how many artists that aren’t future hall of fame stay hot for 10 years?

    Album isn’t bad at all. 3.5 Mics.

    Wale just, for some reason doesn’t have that dedicated fanbase like J.Cole or even Big Sean who will ride with him from release to release.

    I disagree. “On Chill” is contrived af. It has a sample and Jeremih hook.

    Wale is the least important part of that song.

    The shyt people go through to justify hating wale is hilarious. I’m not even a fan like that myself but still. We cool with Chance the rapper out here but Wale sucks?:mjlol: These current rap fans are hilarious.

    those ain’t bad even numbers at all for wale at this point of his career. Wale issue is he never was able to get a white fanbase

    He hasn't been hot for 10 years breh.

    One of his biggest guest appearances spins wise was on a fukking Waka Flocka song. That song charted higher than any of his own singles.

    Not saying that he’s been hot the whole period, I’m saying that he’s been active in the game for 10 years. Us expecting him or any artist of his caliber to be hot for over 10 years or 10 years since since their inception is not reasonable.

    I’d also say he was hot until after the Seinfeld album, that album did 100k fw.

    Wale just isn't worth listening to like that. Who you turning off to put Wale on for, honestly? Just let that nikka die in peace.
