Wale has no problem opening up in his music. Rappers are definitely more 'in their feelings' than they used to be; and while Young Money superstar Drake may be the poster boy for emo-rap, Wale also says he's not afraid to let his emotions show in song--and he doesn't care who has a problem with it.
The D.C. rhymer says he's not trying to prove how cool he is in every song.
"I'm just myself," Wale said. "I don't have anything that I gotta prove -- I know what I am to my city. I know what I to my fans. I don't gotta try to out-cool everybody every song. I gotta give emotion."
