Wale ft. Tre (of UCB) & Young Chris - Nightlife
Though you, the readers, chose Drake as Breaking Through Next Year in the 2008 Best of the Booth Awards (and we, the staff, chose runner-up B.o.B.), the comments following the announcement basically said that all of the five candidates are ready to hit the ground running in ‘09. One of those five is Wale; preparing to get Back to the Feature with the release of his much-anticipated mixtape, he brings along his UCB bandmate and another frequent collaborator to step out and enjoy the Washington D.C. Nightlife. As Tre handles the hook, Wale and Young Chris each spit some laid-back (but lyrically nimble) rhymes over Mikey Mike‘s live-band beat. If you think Nightlife has appeal, just wait until two weeks from now, when Wale will premiere his new, Cool and Dre-produced single, Chillin’, featuring Lady GaGa.
