As expected, Wale nabs his first #1 album with his third studio effort The Gifted. Selling just North of 158k, beating out J. Cole (84k) and Kanye West (65k). After the jump, the DMV native breaks down the album to Billboard.
Today is a day I want my fans to be extra. proud. We have the #1 album in the country!! Came a long way and still goin. So grateful!
