Last night Remy Martin and XXL Live brought D.C. based rapper Wale to District in Adams Morgan.  Part of XXL's Live concert series, Wale's appearance was especially awesome given his D.C. roots.

XXL Live is:

A collection of intimate performances bringing the live music experiences to new heights.  Every show will headline a well-known rap artist and feature special surprise guests, mixed with local hip-hop flavor.

Wale is particularly special to D.C.  Né Olubowale Victor Folarin, Wale gained popularity here before getting scooped up by Mark Ronson.

Currently on tour (he's in Richmond, VA on Friday) Wale is a Twitter addict.  He was spotted on his phone several times last night, and we're sure he was Tweeting at some point.

So we took to his Twitter to see what's going on in his Twitterverse.  Here are some of our faves:

Nope RT @CheesusSlice: @Wale will u have any appearances from a seinfeld cast member on this one too?

RT @DdotC: the @wale concert was crazy! http://myloc.me/9RCME

RT @PersonalTruth: Shout out to @Wale for having ALL of twitter quoting "Ambitious Girl" gotta respect his grind

RT @elsalovee: if you haven't heard @Wale's ambitious girl, what are you doing with your life?

Let's go RT @djayare: this @wale ambitious girl bout to give me mad FB statuses for the next couple days ha.

What is "Ambitious Girl," you ask?  Wale's latest soliloquy, of course.

Peep.
