Wale ft. Tiara Thomas - Bad

Posted 3 years ago
Kelson Camp

Remember when mixtapes were largely considered “throwaway” projects, often released without much thought, effort, or original production in order to promote a larger, for-purchase LP? Thankfully, those days are behind us. Now, mixtapes are just as important as albums, frequently containing album quality material, despite their free 99 price tag. Case in point: Wale’s Bad. Although it can be found on his December mixtape, Folarian, Bad has been selected as the MMG emcee’s new single. Boosting the song’s worth to its new $1.29 price tag is Tiara Thomas, who produces the squeaking beat and lends her sultry vocals to the hook, pacing the track in between Wale’s signature nasally flow. While there is no word yet on the DMV representative’s next project, he has been very busy 2 Chainzing the guest feature game, recently appearing on cuts from Pusha-T, DJ Scream, and Kid Ink.
