Wale: Washington, D.C.

Wale proudly wears his Washington, D.C., badge on his sleeve, along with his penchant for witty wordplay. The rapper has turned the stage into his own soapbox by singing about issues such as inter-black racism in the track "Shades." He's also credited Seinfeld with inspiring The Mixtape About Nothing saying, "the TV show's 'honest dialogue' mirrors his lyrical style, which frequently references pop culture and politics while avoiding gangster-rap bluster." His music also features a lot of go-go sounds that originated in D.C.
