Wale has deep roots in the Greater D.C. area having attended Quince Orchard High in Maryland.
Before turning his attention to hip hop, he starred on the Cougars' football team and also had a stint playing collegiate ball. Wale recently signed to Rick Ross' Maybach Music label and his new album Ambition is set to drop in November. Despite his national fame, Wale still has love for the DMV — particularly its pro sports teams. ESPNHS Multimedia Editor Phil Murphy caught up with the "Nike Boots" rapper to get his take on the current D.C. sports scene, including a surprising prediction for the Redskins.
