Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread

The Gaga feature didn't really make Wale known. And IIRC the song came out before Gaga really became a pop superstar. Wale didn't become a popular piece of mainstream rap until he signed with MMG. He was known but wasn't relevant as far as mainstream rap goes, if that makes sense.

When Wale really became hot and started getting more mainstream attention is when he was featured on No Hands with Waka Flocka and dropped those two "love" songs after he signed with MMG, That Way & Lotus Flower Bomb. That's when Wale really became big.

@LBGetBack: I was referring to Dre songs that I like. Never have been a big Dre fan, I have the Chronic and 2001 albums, but I don't listen to them that often.
