Wale’s Before I Shine

Yesterday, Wale debuted his latest mixtape Before I Shine.

The eleven track effort features the highly promoted “Black Is Gold,” a celebration of black women and all their grandeur with a throwback D’Angelo sample. The compilation also includes a recreation of a Nas classic, an Ed Sheeran remix, an Eric Bellinger song and three freestyles.

The DMV area representative addresses concerns about his mental health, his love for black women and college football through the interesting combinations of songs.
