Rapper Wale isn’t quite where he wants to be with his music career, and at a time when the business seems to be dominated by Drake, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar and Future; Wale often feels like he’s not getting a fair shot.

Interestingly enough, the one area in his career he feels good about is his relationship with his fans.

But he wishes people would pay attention to the fact that he reaches out to his fans daily but some bigger artists don’t and still have more success.

  1. He takes everything to heart and that’s his problem. Back in the day, there was no Twitter. Fans supported an artist because they loved their music, not because they tweeted them. I know he knows this. I think if he would tweet less and stop complaining all the time, he would finally start to get the shine he wants.

  2. I don’t care if people tweet me back or not. All I ask is that the music is good and that’s enough. Sit down Wale.

  3. I think Wale could be so much more if he just got off Twitter for a while. How can anyone win in life when they’re tweeting every thought and complaint they have about their career?

  4. I can’t even lie, he’s responded to a Voxer message of mine and took the time to humor me (against his initial preference lolol) after one of his concerts. It definitely meant a lot to me, but doesn’t make or break whether I support an artist. I can’t fault him for this. I think it’s the result of his endless quest to pinpoint why he hasn’t reached the level of success he’s yearning for. With as beautiful as his gift is, he’s extremely unhappy… I hope he has supportive people around him because if not, I don’t see this ending well later on down the line.
