Wale hit up The Late Show with David Letterman last night to perform his single “Pretty Girls” and you know what? He was pretty good! I’ll be real: I am always underwhelmed by rappers’ live performances. I find that the genre doesn’t really lend to performing live… words get skipped, the performers usually just wind up yelling every third word and relying on audience participation to fill in the rest, but that was not the case with Wale.
The crowd was into it, too. When was the last time you heard a late show audience clapping along with the musical guest?
