Wale, beloved ambassador for DMV hip-hop, has crept a little bit under the radar lately. If you’ve been sleeping on the MMG rapper, as it seems that many have, you’ve been missing out some heat. Since he dropped the Summer On Sunset mixtape back in June, Wale has stayed busy releasing single after single on his Soundcloud page.
There hasn’t’ been much press or promotion on this as of late, but sprinkled throughout many of his new tracks are sometimes subtle and other times not so subtle hints that his new album Shine is very much on its way. His last LP, The Album About Nothing, was debatably the best project of his career, and one of the most underrated albums of 2015.
Wale remains in the upper echelon of lyrical poets in the game today; not many are touching him with a pen, and this is FACT. If you need a reminder of Folarin’s lyrical capabilities we’ll post a few of his latest releases here, but be sure to peep his Soundcloud for the entire catalog. We’re not sure which, if any of these will make the cut for Shine but hopefully we’ll find out sooner than later.
