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.
The Album About Nothing was released earlier this year, so we don't expect another LP from Wale anytime soon. Then again, his MMG bawse Rick Ross did pull the two-albums-in-one-calendar-year feat in 2014, so it could be possible.
And they saw I came up
And they saw I ain't change up
And they know they can't touch me
No no, you can't fuck with me
