In 2009, Wale dropped his debut album and tried his damnest to prove he was the going to be the next big thing. Unfortunately for him, his debut album was basically a complete disaster. To make matters worse, he invited J. Cole to rhyme alongside him on "Beautiful Bliss." Cole ended up outshining Wale so bad it left us thinking we jumped the gun with Wale and should have been more concerned with Cole's debut.
