In early January Wale performed at the Bowery Ballroom to an enthusiastic crowd, filling the room to almost capacity. DJ Clark Kent spoke to the crowd for a moment before Wale hit the stage.
"Most of y'all listen to Wale's music and you just think 'oh my god, great songs!' The reason why I work with Wale is cause Wale is one of the best rhyme sayers right now," the awesome DJ exclaimed.
"What you need to understand is when I met him ten years ago, he was spitting like that then. So many people missed how good of a lyricist he is that the reason why I did it is that people recognize me for working lyricists I.E. Jay-Z, Biggie, they know me for doing that. So what I wanted to do is work with my little brother so they understood he's a dope lyricist."
