Editorial Review

The moment you thought would never come is finally here. This is a day that Wale himself was growing antsy about, but his first studio release is finally on shelves. If you're like most of us, you probably already have a fat digital playlist of his features and mixtape tracks, but "Attention Deficit" is the official debut. Wale's spent the last several years slogging through an upended hip-hop landscape, carrying the DMV on his back, charming an international fanbase and vaulting to the forefront of hip-hop's next school. The artist who brought a live go-go band to MTV will be celebrating his latest milestone at Ibiza tonight. Get in free with proof of purchase of the album.
