Wale brought his current tour to Rams Head Live in Baltimore, MD on Wednesday night. Backed by legendary D.C. go-go band the Uncalled 4 Band, the D.C. native played before a large crowd of faithful fans who hung on his every word as he ripped through his set.
Baltimore was the eighth stop of thirteen dates that the rapper currently has scheduled for his winter tour. Opening up for Wale were, D.C. go-go band Mambo Sauce, Fat Trel, Tiara Thomas, and Black Cobain.
Born Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, Wale was discovered by producer Mark Ronson in 2006. One of the first songs to gain the rapper a lot of attention was Dig Dug (Shake It). The song was put in to heavy rotation on radio in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (D.M.V) and is one of the most requested songs by a D.C. artist on D.C. radio in history. Since then, it’s been a steady climb to fame for Wale.
From winning the D.C. Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award in 2006 to being featured in the “Unsigned Hype” column of The Source to signing with Allido Records and Interscope, Wale seems to be doing everything right to continue his growth and build his fan base.
