    When you think of Washington D.C. hip hop, odds are Wale's the first name that springs to mind. Later this week, he'll get the chance to visit his hometown's most prominent landmark, the White House, as a guest performer at an event organized by Michelle Obama. Speaking to and performing in front of kids “who have overcome substantial obstacles to persist through high school and make it to college," Wale will be there on Thursday on behalf of the First Lady's "Reach Higher" initiative.

    Does social media inherently make everyone more petty? That's the question that this edition of "140 Bars" begs, what with "beef" translating to snarky subs more and more these days. With a few exceptions-- all coming from the more successful artists on this list-- this week's tweets are salty, so better hope you're hydrated.

    Only a few months removed from The Album About Nothing, and yet Wale is already working on his next album. During a press conference at this past weekend’s Essence Festival, the MMG rapper revealed that he’s currently working on a new “go-go” album at the moment. If you’re unfamiliar, “go-go” is a popular music sub-genre associated with funk that originated in the Washington, D.C. area. (Learn more about it here.)

    Miguel isn't the most prolific artist in R&B, but he's one of the most inimitable. As he's become an undeniable fashion icon and sex-symbol, he's still managed to evolve his sound with each subsequent record, sounding like the second-coming of Prince-- less dancey, but more sexy. He's an artist of his own breed, which is why we don't see him on features as much as most R&B artists, who get more hype off their guest appearances on rap albums than on their solo work.

    Rick Ross changed the landscape of rap when he forged his indomitable empire Maybach Music Group. His new signees, Wale and Meek Mill, were unproven commodities who simply needed a chance to thrive and eclipse expectations. Under Ross' tutelage, both artists have sculpted strong careers and have expanded their fanbases exponentially. Wale’s poetic ambiance fused with Meek’s rugged and street demeanor is what makes MMG go. When they’re both on a track, you’re almost guaranteed nothing but energy and fiery bars.

    Despite the fortuitous shift in the music industry, the status of Jay Z and Kanye West remains unblemished. For over a decade, Hov and Ye anchored the remaining bits of Roc-A-Fella by extinguishing rays of doubts with timeless material. Since Reasonable Doubt, nobody questioned Jay’s lyrical prowess. He embodies consistency and longevity. With a run similar to Jordan's, it’s easy to see why he’s pegged as an all-time great.

    For years, we have tried to decode the enigma that is Wale. Rather than being lauded for his gift of gab, he's been overshadowed by his shill cries for acceptance. You see, Wale always had the skills to be a special artist in hip-hop. Nobody questioned his motor in the booth. Nobody questioned his scintillating wordplay. We just wanted him to make the best music that we thought he was capable of making.  After being slapped with criticism by the hands of social media, he finally learned how to hit the mute button and focus on building himself up as an artist.

    Charts Don't Lie: April 11

    This week is an exciting not only due to a lot of movement in the chart, but the fact that four rap albums take up the top spots on the Billboard 200. Yes, one happens to be a soundtrack, but seeing that the tracklist is made up almost entirely of hip-hop and RnB, it's hard to see it any other way. This also happens to be the first week since it's release that Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly hasn't occupied the number one spot, being ousted by Wale's The Album About Nothing.

    Wale's Projects About Nothing demonstrated his love for Seinfeld mixed in with a healthy dose of alternative hip hop. The Mixtape About Nothing kicked off the love affair with 19 tracks, mostly containing Best Kept Secret production, but the tape also had some music from The Roots, J Dilla, Lil Wayne, and The Budos Band for healthy measure.

    Last week's big releases came from Wale and Ludacris, though projections predicted that neither artist would hit the 100k mark. The final numbers are now in, and as we were warned, both come in shy of six figures.
