Wuddup fellow listeners? Ok, so I know I haven't posted since the medieval times of OKIE DOKE, so I figured I would kick back into it with something Raw, and yes I do mean raw. Anybody in the know KNOWS Wale is one of the dopest rising MC's to date.
His witty lyrics, biting metaphors, and slick similes coupled with beats that would normally be classified outside the genre help to progress what we know today as hip-hop. In this video "Family Affair," done by Three/21 films, Wale explains through the eyes of a prostitute the struggles of being a mother, a lover, and trying to have a normal life. Pretty intense stuff. I'm sure I only scratched the surface with that explanation, but ill stop writing and let you develop your own interpretation.
