Wale…It’s Complicated

Today, poetry reigns supreme as Wale returns lyricism to its rightful place in hip hop. The D.C. rapper debuted his latest effort It’s Complicated.

The four track release is Wale in his best light. Just less than 15 minutes , It’s Complicated is an appropriately titled examination of like, love and relationships in this day and age. The only credited feature goes to Cash Money crooner Jacquees and the pair may have created the new ride or die theme song with “Black Bonnie.”

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.

Wale’s Got Time

Just in case you missed it, August 11 Wale went on a Twitter rant then released a three track EP entitled Today…I Got Time. 

The D.C. rapper took offense to being the butt of some jokes made on Twitter, then took to SoundCloud to remind the world the there’s nothing funny about his wordplay. He debuted three freestyles and a lost verse from “Sucker for Pain” which appears on the soundtrack for the recently released film Suicide Squad.
