Wale Barely Made It To Coachella

walecoachella Wale Barely Made It To Coachella@AndyShore There almost wasn’t even a set to review. We stood in the hot sun, anxiously awaiting Wale to take the stage. At first we chalked it up to rapper being fashionably late. Then it got to be ridiculous. Security had no idea what was going on. I took turns trading explanations with one security official. My theory was that he was pulling tubes on Jay Z’s tour bus and couldn’t be bothered. Zack gave up and wandered off. I had nowhere else I wanted to be, so Rob and I hung around. Finally, with about ten minutes to go in his set time, Wale took the stage.

Wale didn’t waste any time, taking off into the crowd for “Chillin.” At the end of the song, he made his way back towards the stage. He told us he needed to reenergize. That meant the crowd needed to sing-a-long to King of Leon’s “Use Somebody.” What a waste. You miss most of your set, and you’re gonna spend the time you don’t have with a crowd sing-a-long of somebody’s else’s song? That’s BS. Wale cranked out a couple of his other hits in “Pretty Girls” and “90210.” The latter, he rapped in double time, so he could end his set on time. Overall, a highly disappointing performance from one of my current favorites in hip hop.
