Rap-Up Mag has a sneak peek at Wale’s much anticipated (and indefinitely delayed) Attention: Deficit. First, off bad news for go-go fans – the Backyard sampling, Gucci Mane collab “Pretty Girls” “is the only record on the album that features the signature go-go sound.”
Beyond that the review is predictably gushing (“remember the Folgers coffee slogan? Well, the best part of waking up will be playing this record.” uhh…) as is often the case when critics are granted exclusive first listens. It’s informative nonetheless. The tracklisting boasts production from Mark Ronson, local boys Best Kept Secret, Cool & Dre, American Gangster architects Sean C & LV and TV on The Radio’s Dave Sitek. Guest spots are a mixed bag, featuring Rihanna, Bun B, Jazmine Sullivan, Phantom Planet’s Alex Greenwald, Blink 182’s Travis Barker and Marsha Ambrosius of Floetry. Also there is a song called “90210” that Ronson simply describes a ““The Perez Hilton angle.”
So basically don’t get your hopes up, DC.
