It would be nearly impossible to completely sleep on Wale’s new album, The Gifted. After all, this is a Maybach Music Group release. So everyone from Rick Ross to Meek Mill to Wale himself has been promoting the hell out of it for the past few weeks. The album title has been everywhere—as of last night, “#TheGifted” was trending nationwide on Twitter—and MMG as a whole has done a great job of pushing the project.
It would be possible for you to sleep on the album’s content, though. With Kanye West’s Yeezus, J. Cole’s Born Sinner, and Mac Miller’s Watching Movies with the Sound Off dropping last week, there’s a good chance your ears are fatigued from all of the dope music that’s been released recently. But we’d advise to wake up, because there’s some great stuff here. Check out 6 reasons you shouldn’t sleep on The Gifted.
