Rap-Up TV: Wale Speaks on Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye, & Lady Gaga

Wale celebrates the second biggest day of his life tomorrow with the release of his debut album Attention Deficit.

Hip-hop’s underdog chilled with Rap-Up TV on the eve of his album release to talk about the advice he got from his Roc Nation boss Jay-Z, receiving Rihanna’s blessing to sample her song, getting the cold shoulder from Kanye West (“I don’t wait for handouts”), and why his “Chillin'” collaborator Lady Gaga is the next Madonna.
