20 Things You Didn't Know About Wale

Wale is the cousin of actor Gbenga Akinnagbe, best known for his role of Chris Partlow from HBO's The Wire.

The actor told an interviewer that he helped hand out Wale's tapes when the rapper was just starting out. "For a full week once, we took his mix tape everywhere and handed it to everyone because he is really really good. And a week later, he had a gig and it all kind of skyrocketed from there."
