Wale's 25 Favorite Rap Albums

#14. The Roots, Phrenology (2002)

Favorite song: “Thought @ Work”

Wale: “I first really discovered how great that was at an airport listening to my iPod. I’ve always been a big Roots fan, obviously. But that joint just had so many records that make me feel like rapping. It makes you feel like rapping over drum breaks and mad hip-hop shit. ‘Thought @ Work’ inspired a lot of Wale records man. If I get stuck, I listen to ‘Thought @ Work.’”
