Wale feat. Chrisette Michelle - Shades
Wale feat. Chrisette Michelle - Shades(Produced By 9th Wonder)
I'm not the biggest fan of Wale, the "persona", but every now and then he'll make a song which makes me believe he's worthy of some of the love he receives. Shades is one of those songs. On it, Wale describes how his immigrant upbringing shaped a somewhat skewed view of color and race and the way he's able to relate his unique experience being Nigerian and insecurities without being overly melodramatic (ahem, Drake, ahem) makes him almost sympathetic, which for Wale is a tall task. Attention Deficit (Nov. 10th) looks like it might actually deliver as promised.
Just A Thought: 9th is killing em right now.
