Another mixtape!

What if I told you that one of the best mixtapes of the year was based around Seinfeld?

Wale is probably one of the smartest MC's I've heard in a long time. This is what Atmosphere would be doing if he wasn't busy doing lines and hitting on sad girls. This album tackles the usual backpacker issues like relationships, race relations, etc., but it manages to avoid most of the navel-gazey pitfalls. Also it features guest appearances from The Roots, Bun B, Pusha T, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Li'l Wayne.

Wale managed to find an excellent balance between cerebral rap and party rap. Yay for him and yay for us!
