A couple weeks ago I listened to Wale’s Attention Deficit, which dropped in October 2009. When I first listened to it when it debuted I was disappointed in the album. Throughout most of 2007 and 2008 I was putting a lot of people onto this talented emcee from the DMV. When I listened to the album most recently, I gained a greater appreciation for the album. Although there were some pop chart aspiring duds, the majority of the songs were Wale pouring out his feelings on the beat.
“Prescription”, the final track on the album, displays Wale spitting well placed metaphors about prescription drugs and medical terminology which allude to his music (the prescription). The song samples “Modaji” by Dave Grusin, which is a cover of Harvey Mason’s song of the same name.
Wale also rapped over the “Modaji” sample in “The Hype”, which was on The Mixtape About Nothing.
Shout out to Tap Out for the assist on that.
