Wale

Wale came into the game under the wing of Grammy-winning pop super-producer Mark Ronson, who signed the D.C. rapper to a joint venture between Interscope and his own Allido Records. But Wale's first album, Attention Deficit, sold a disappointing 28,000 copies its first week. The "Lotus Flower Bomb" rapper was unbowed, inking a new deal with Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group and selling 162,000 copies of his sophomore set, Ambition, the first week of its release.
