In this short clip with MTV, the Brick Squad representa explains why he thinks Wale should get more recognition.
“Wale hard. Wale like a light. You know how you screw a light bulb in … but you don’t twist it all the way, so it keep going in and out, that’s Wale. Now when you twist Wale tight, [he's] gon’ become bright. That man can rap real good but nobody give him an opportunity. I like Wale music but I never knew him. Gucci knew him. He so happened to walk in the studio, like, ‘Yo, what up, I’m Wale.’ That’s the kind of person he is, [he'll] introduce [himself]. I was like, ‘Damn, boy, that’s crazy.’ I was just thinking about somebody like a Wale, J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa. Those the three top people in my brain. So Wale, swear to God, walked through the door, [and we were like], ‘Eh, boy, we got a song for ya!’ He just [jumped in] from right there.”
