iSHi Feat. French Montana, Raekwon & Wale
Back in October, Swedish producer iSHi linked up with French Montana & Raekwon for the single “We Run.” Having remained relatively quiet ever since, it appears Ishi isn’t entirely done promoting the record as he decides to come out of nowhere and share an updated version of the song with Wale on it.
The Powerball jackpot has reached an Earth-shattering $1.5 billion. And it's not just poor people getting in on the action... Carmelo Anthony is just one of many celebs to have shared their hopes of winning the grand prize. With a new freestyle entitled "Powerball," it appears that Wale has copped a ticket as well. Produced by Street Symphony and D.O. Speaks, "Powerball" is basically Wale's explanation of what he'd do if he wins the jackpot. "Ask me how I'll spend a billion dollars, I'll say, blow that shit in one day hoe."
Smoke DZA & Wale
Just in case a Hit-Boy-producer banger with Wale isn't enough heat, the rapper returns today with Smoke DZA by his side on "Absolutely Perfect." As you can probably tell from the WWE-inspired single art, the record gets its influence from wrestler Mr. Perfect.
Hit-Boy Feat. Wale
Cali beat maker turned rapper Hit-Boy has teamed up with DC's own Wale for a new track, title “Yadda Yadda.” The track can only be described as smooth, with some slick sampling by Hit-Boy that hearkens back to old school Kanye production. Wale handles the chorus casually, embodying the song’s laid back feel and “make it look easy” proclamations. He doesn’t have a proper verse, but the chorus is more rapping than hook material anyway, and that suits Wale's vocal range a bit better.
Legit Boss (Freestyle)
Wale is a longtime wrestling fan, and he happens to be a huge supporter of Sasha Banks, who has become one of the hottest sensations in the WWE. He's used Ms. Banks as the inspiration for his latest freestyle, "Legit Boss," and he hopes he can embark on a relationship of his own with an independent queen of comparable status.
MVP (Bryce Harper)
Wale gets back to the music, dropping off a new record on his SoundCloud in reference to the Washington Nationals baseball player MVP Bryce Harper. The rapper has been known to get caught up in silly social media feuds, sometimes of his own creation. Most recently, he caught a dagger from Jay Rock when he said that Kendrick Lamar was no longer answering his phone calls. Today he reminds us that first and foremost, he's a rapper.
Young Greatness Feat. Wale
After linking up with Yo Gotti for the remix to “Real Niggas Back” a couple months ago, Quality Control's Young Greatness decides to return today with a new record with MMG’s own Wale called “Squad Goals.”
Phone Down (Remix)
Problem & Wale
With Erykah Badu's new interview (featuring Jay Electronica) making waves of the e-streets, Problem and Wale have chosen an opportune moment to release their new remix collaboration of Ms. Badu's "Phone Down."
Chaz French Feat. Wale
The DMV is popping right now. There's the East Coast trap of Shy Glizzy, the underground go-go-inspired dance numbers of GoldLink. Chaz French is guy who's a little harder to pin down -- on past cuts, he's blended both of those sounds with his singular rhyming style. He's also undoubtedly been influenced by Wale, whose impact on the DMV revival cannot be understated. And Wale has come through to support his young neighbor on French's latest track, "No Shade."
GoldLink Feat. Anderson .Paak
A DMV vet, Wale, was chilling with the region's most promising youngster, GoldLink, in the studio, and Folarin was feeling the vibes so much that he decided to premiere GoldLink's latest track on his own Twitter. "Unique" follows last month's "Spectrum," and it's another piece of chilled grooviness from GoldLink and his main producer, Louie Lastic.
Not On Drugs (Remix)
Wale just keeps the music coming today. After hitting us with "New Phone," "Know Me," and "Illuminate," he's turned in a remix of Tove Lo's hit "Not On Drugs". For obvious reasons, this is the most radio-friendly of the new releases, but Wale sounds pretty comfortable in this role, which makes us think he should probably guest on more pop records.
Wale Feat. Skeme
Skeme has been putting out solid material for a while now, and today he's been given a big look by appearing on Wale's new track "Know Me". As usual, he contributes some inspired bars, while Wale continues to inflect his rhymes with a little melody as we heard on his other tracks today. This is definitely the hardest record of the bunch, but it is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below.As far as we know, these are just some spare tracks from Folarin, and won't be appearing on any particular project, but we wouldn't be surprised if he has something cooking up.
Wale premiered both "Illuminate" and "New Phone" on The Breakfast Club today; the latter of which is now streamable. Like "Illuminate," this one is pretty melodic, with Wale singing for a good chunk of the track (dare we say on some Drake shit?). This one is definitely sounding like a single, though as far as we know, he doesn't have a project coming anytime soon. Perhaps there's a mixtape on its way?Let us know which of the two tracks you're feeling more in the comments below. Do you think Wale has a project planned to drop before the end of the year?
Wale Feat. Phil Ade
Wale premiered two brand new records on New York radio today, and they've now made their way online. The first of the tracks is "Illuminate" a collab with up-and-comer Phil Ade, who also reps the DC area. The track is built off of a warm sample and some driving percussion. Ade opens things up with a 16, while Wale enters with a melodic hook, before he adds his own verse.
Finna Get Loose
Wale keeps the heat coming. Two days after unveiling "Voices In My Head," his collab with Highbridge Voices and Metro Boomin, the MMG rapper comes through with a remix of Puffy and Pharrell's "Finna Get Loose." The original came out at the end of June and was billed as the return of Puff Daddy & The Family, or his group of Bad Boy record-setting producers "The Hitmen."
Voices In My Head
Wale Feat. Highbridge Voices
After making some of 2015's most interesting music with Future and Young Thug, Metro Boomin is reaching out to different types of artists, or more likely, they're reaching out to him. We recently saw the Atlanta beatmaker pictured with boom bap revivalist Joey Bada$$, and now we've received a new record from DC's biggest export, Wale, with Metro behind the boards. This one was actually constructed through a Sprite-endorsed collaboration that put the two artists and the Highbridge voices choir in the same room.
This past weekend, Wale dropped the official version of "The Summer League," featuring Kanye and Ty Dolla $ign, on his soundcloud. While it was nice to hear the CDQ, it left us wanting something brand new -- and the TAAN rapper's latest soundcloud leak is just that. "Spoiled" is a woozy love song that finds Wale switching up his flows more than usual and exercising some pained singing on the hook.
The Summer League (CDQ)
Wale Feat. Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign
Wale's giving his fans some Labor Day blessings.
Future Is Mine
DJ Cassidy Feat. Chromeo & Wale
Looking to take his record to the next level, NYC’s DJ Cassidy decides to come through today and share the official remix to his feel-good, summer time jam “Future Is Mine” featuring Chromeo and now Wale. Adding some hip-hop flavor to the pop-friendly dance record, Wale picks up his flow and delivers some slick bars about hooking up with woman, mentioning In Living Color & J Lo in the verse (See lyrics). The track is in support of DJ Cassidy’s upcoming untitled album, which is slated to drop later this Fall. Take a listen.
Dis My Shit
Rawyals Feat. Wale
Back in April, we introduced you to three-piece R&B group Rawyals, who made their HNHH debut with "King Me," featuring none other than Fetty Wap. With that, their first single, steadily rising up the Urban radio charts, it's our pleasure to premiere the group's latest track today. "Dis My Shit" features Wale, and like "King Me," is taken from Rawyals' upcoming debut album, Our Queendom.
