D.C. rapper Wale took the East Coast by storm last night (June 24) in front of a packed house at the Best Buy Theater in New York City.

The 28-year-old Maybach Music Group signee got the party going as he shook the crowd with his songs and the countdown to his third studio album, ‘The Gifted,’ began. He performed new tracks including his single ‘Bad.’

Despite being a half-hour late to the stage, the wait was well worth it as he performed older favorites such as ‘Pretty Girls,’ ‘Lotus Flower Bomb,’ ‘No Hands,’ ‘Bait’ and many others.

After witnessing fans' outpouring of love during his show last night, ‘The Gifted’ is sure to debut with much success.
