Stream Wale's Album 'Wow… That’s Crazy'
A decade after dropping his debut album Attention Deficit, Wale continues to be one of hip-hop’s most masterful storytellers.
On his sixth album Wow… That’s Crazy, which he calls his “most personal by far,” the D.C. rapper digs deep, touching on relationships, the black experience, and more.
In addition to the Jeremih-assisted “On Chill,” the 15 tracks include appearances from Bryson Tiller, Ari Lennox, 6LACK, Lil Durk, Kelly Price, Jacquees, Megan Thee Stallion, Boogie, and Pink Sweat$. He also reunites with his MMG brothers Rick Ross and Meek Mill on “Routine.”
I’m goin on stage in a few minutes .. I just been reflecting on my life and career …I can’t explain the state I’m in right now I just know that I’ve never dropped an album wit THIS feeling.. I have no anger no doubt … many other feelings but I DO know that I am loved . I know

Just moments before the album dropped, Wale took to Twitter to address his fans. “I just been reflecting on my life and career,” he tweeted. “I can’t explain the state I’m in right now I just know that I’ve never dropped an album wit THIS feeling.. I have no anger no doubt … many other feelings but I DO know that I am loved . I know.”
The album marks Wale’s first since 2017’s Shine. “I never want to make anything that doesn’t feel infinite .. absolute .. this album is my most personal by far,” he said. “The majority of my time making it I just knew it would be my last.”
You can catch him performing new material live on his “Everything Is Fine” tour, which runs through Oct. 28 in Seattle.
