Rhymes of the Century

The Washington, D.C. raised MC makes his music debut with the independent release of his first single "Rhyme of the Century." Along with becoming a minor hit on local radio, Wale gets featured in the "Unsigned Hype" column of The Source magazine. After signing to the D.C. label Studio 43, he released local, go-go-tinged hits like "Dig Dug (Shake It)" and "Breakdown."
