May 30th, folks. If you haven’t heard, it’s gonna be a hot summer. Shout-out to Best Kept Secret and the Allido crew. I feel a Soundtrakk/Lupe type connection going on…

The Washington D.C. rapper Wale (pronounced “wah-lay”) has been making waves in the hip-hop community with support from Mark Ronson and various “artists to watch” lists.
