The next two songs is where the CD really stands out.

I got this album as a Christmas gift last year and it took some time for me to really get a chance to "listen" to the songs.

Wale raps over the song with great one-liners effortlessly.

The next generation of hip-hop is here and they are coming at music listeners full-force! There is Drake and Kid Cudi, and then there is someone I can directly relate to: an artist by the name of Wale Folarin. I relate to him so much because we are the same age and from the same place. A place that has for so long struggled to get our talent recognized and respected, namely by the hip hop community. Ginuwine, Mya, Raheem DeVaughn and Toni Braxton all hail from our area, but what do they have in common? They are singers. But Wale is finally giving Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia the chance to show that we are immensely talented just as rappers from New York, California and Florida are. We always knew it, but did the nation? Well, if you don't know, now you know. Ladies and gentlemen, Wale!

"Attention Deficit" is the debut album. "Chillin'" is the first single, which features the super-talent Lady Gaga. "Chillin'" is one of those tracks that is very easy to like because of its infectious hook and great beat. Wale raps over the song with great one-liners effortlessly. This song was given a good amount of airplay, but it's just a small sample of his capabilities. For Wale at his best, listen to this entire album, and also pick up his mixtape, "A Mixtape About Nothing." The beats on this album are innovative, but they are undeniably hip-hop. Features include Bun B, Chrisette Michele and Melonie Fiona. The song which features Chrisette, "Shades", is profound. So profound that it will have to sitting in a corner picking apart each line. The song is about the insecurities of a dark-skinned person and how lighter people seemingly have it easier. "World Tour" is another highlight and this is where Jazmine Sullivan lends her talent. The two talents do a fine job with this collaboration.

There is NO doubt in my mind that in "Attention: Deficit," Wale has crafted one of the standout hip hop albums (not mixtapes) of 2009. Though there are a few songs that I can't fully get behind, I think that from start to finish, this is an album worthy of your listening time that will age well as you take the time to get to the bottom of Wale's rhymes.

In the grand scale of hip hop, I'd place Wale as slightly left of center -- he's no Lupe Fiasco rapper-turned-indiebloghero, but at the same time, he's eons more thoughtful than anything you'll hear on the radio (no Soulja Boy). His rhymes and topics are more self-aware and socially conscious than most of the hip hop mainstream. His two biggest mixtapes were a Seinfeld-themed and -sampling lament of the state of hip hop and a mixtape heralding the art of the feature, with producing throughout to one of hip hop's god producers, 9th Wonder (also left of mainstream).

However, Wale eschewed his progressive approach for "Attention: Deficit," which he claimed at the time would be a parable of the state of today's unfocused rap and disjointed rap albums. (I see this as an excuse to put out an album just like those, but whatever.) In any event, in paralleling the rap album (club song, love song, thug song, etc.) he creates songs that I spin infinitely more than any of these typical songs. Contrary to Pitchfork's decrying of "Attention: Deficit" as an album that gives us no sense of Wale the artist or Wale's true style, I enjoy A:D for being superior at whatever it tries to do.

The one low point, for me: the cut-and-paste Neptunes joint "Let It Loose" featuring Pharrell is NOT good at all. It's not 2003 anymore, but rappers still think that having the Neptunes on is some kind of obligation that needs to be filled for success.

I had a slight curiosity about Wale's 'Attention Deficit' album early on but I didn't pay it any attention right away. I was aware of the single; "Chillin" with Lady GaGa but it was just okay. Fast forward a few months later and I listened to the samples here on Amazon of 'Attention Deficit' but I still wasn't convinced. One day a friend of mine was gushing about the album on twitter and that was the conviction I needed to finally get the album. I am glad I did. The album is very good and surprisingly a breath of fresh air for me. I don't get into rap very much but it is nice to finally get into a decent rap album.

The first half of the album is a lot stronger than the second half of the album. I think that's my only complaint about the album. Some of the songs on the second half are a little weak and not as memorable in my opinion. I like the guest appearances here and Wale is not overshadowed in any way; he still remains the star. Good job Wale!

Honestly, I didnt know this was Wale's "first" mainstream album. So, I'm very late! I really like this album. I think it's the opposite of "Ambition". "Deficit" notably runs into a lot of emotions, and lyrically it's all over the place. It seems to work well though. He has a lot of collaborations on this album. My favorite tracks are: "Shades" feat. Chrisette Michele, "Diary" feat. Marsha Ambrosius, and "Pretty Girls" featuring rapper Gucci Mane and Backyard Band. Wasnt clear why Rihanna was mentioned as one of the Features on "Contemplate" on the back of the cd cover? At any rate, Wale is an inspirational rapper on this album. It's worth the purchase.
