  • On this track Wale raps about the stereotypical L.A. girls whose sole goal in life is becoming celebrities, only to find themselves sucked into a world of bulimia and cocaine addiction. "Kanye did it really well with 'All Falls Down,'" explained producer Mark Ronson at the album's listening party. "But nobody's really done it from the Perez Hilton angle."
