Wale's catalog runs deep. Ever since he broke onto the scene with "Rhyme of the Century," the D.C. rapper has gone on to drop eight mixtapes—including his breakthrough project The Mixtape About Nothing—release three solo albums, and play an integral role in the rise of Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group. In the process, Wale has tallied up several hit singles, a No. 1 album with his 2011 release Ambition, and a lane nearly no other rapper can occupy.
As Wale works toward the release of his fourth studio album, The Album About Nothing, and with today being a ceremonious occasion for the rapper (happy 30th birthday!), we felt it was only right to shine a light on the records that have shaped Wale's career over the last decade. From deep mixtape cuts to Billboard hits, the D.C. rapper has delivered a number of notable tracks worthy of praise. These are The 25 Best Wale Songs.
