Wale’s Interscope Debut Coming In September
XXL Freshman alum Wale is scheduled to drop his debut album Attention: Deficit on September 22.
The disc will be released on Grammy-award-winning producer Mark Ronson’s Allido imprint via Interscope Records. Along with Ronson, the Washington, D.C. native has recruited a long list of heavyweights to provide the CD’s soundscape, including Sean C and LV, Dave Sitek of indie group TV on the Radio and Cool & Dre, who are responsible for Wale’s single “Chillin’” with Lady Gaga. Bun B, K’Naan, Marsha Ambrosius and Jazmine Sullivan were also drafted to share mic time with the rapper.
Yesterday (July 6) “Pretty Girls,” another cut from Attention Deficit, was leaked on the net.
Just last month Wale released his latest mixtape, Back to the Feature and held a listening session on his Twitter account (@Wale). The disc, which was offered for free online, included a laundry list of lyricists, such as Bun B, Beanie Sigel, Young Chris, Talib Kweli, Royce Da 5’9″, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, and Jean Grae.–Elan Mancini
