This is the song that Wale played for labels when he was trying to get signed. Here is the story of the song itself:

So in the spring of 2007, I suggested to Wale that he create an audio manifesto of what he wanted to accomplish as an artist once he signed. DC producer Osinachi, the maestro behind “Nike Boots” who is now part of Rodney Jerkins’ team, blessed Wale with the beat for “The Meeting” and Wale, how do you say, “went in.” This became the first track we played in label meetings and for a time, it was discussed that this would be the intro for Attention Deficit. In retrospect, I think Wale stayed true to the goals set forth in “The Meeting” and you can still hear the hunger in his voice. So 2.5 years later, this track is emancipated. And make sure you cop Attention Deficit if you haven’t done so already.

After listening to this, I don’t get how Interscope under supported Wale. I mean he had like no marketing push for his album and then they severely undershipped his album. Wale deserves much better than that and I hope they will show him more love in 2010. Wale needs to get in the studio with Osinachi more, because this production is insane.
