Wale is definitely one of the most confident artists in the world of hip-hop. The rapper has an impressive trajectory in terms of music. While he recently announced that he would be taking a social media hiatus given a mental health issue, it seems he’s still at it.
There are many rappers who are considered by fans for the greatest-of-all-time debate. While there are many recurring names from 50 Cent to 2Pac & even Kanye West, Wale definitely has to be a new addition.
In a now-deleted tweet, Wale posted a very confident summary of his own career.
When I say I’m one of the greatest rappers of all time. I mean it with all my heart. I’ve put out more QUALITY music than most. My deep cuts are crazy. My singles all got plaques. Decades plus. THAT is why I’m heavy in the gratitude.
Wale definitely has been feeling low, as the rapper took to announcing a short hiatus. The rapper stated that he felt sick. He didn’t reveal what was causing him pain, but it seems he made it out just fine.
The rapper does make some good points, as he has great sales on his singles. He is a veteran in the world of hip hop, so it’s natural that he deserves the recognition. However, it’s quite a stretch to say that Wales is one of the GOATs.
