Wale - BASEhead

The Bassheads

Happy belated holidays everyone. While you’ve taken some time to recover from all the celebrations, Wale has dropped three brand new records via Twitter for his unofficial No Days Off Campaign (when does this guy sleep?). One of the tracks leaked, BASEhead, shows that the D.C. native indicates no signs of slowing down as his lyricism dropped so fast I thought the sky was falling in my headphones. The Bassheads do their job of keeping up with or inspiring the bars (either way, good work) with an ambitious beat that hits both heavy and hard. With the stylistic diversity and raw lyrical talent (“...inspired by the ganja most nine-to-fivers just can’t afford”) Wale has been showing on these unofficial releases, listeners should have no problem biding time until his already-anticipated sophomore set hits the (digital) shelves. Keep it locked for all the latest from the D.C. heavy-hitter.
