Wale - Heaven in the Afternoon

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
LG
Album:
TBD

After Monday’s release of Folarin, a new street album which fans in the Booth and beyond hailed as his finest work in recent memory, Wale deserved to kick back, crack open a carton of eggnog and take the rest of 2012 off. Unlike the House of Congress, though, the MMG signee isn’t the type to cut out early when there’s still work to be done. Thus, he’s returned to feed his insatiable fanbase with freshly-minted promo single Heaven in the Afternoon. Over LG‘s majestic strings, Wale revisits many of the themes from recently-featured mixtape inclusion The Blessings, rhyming about his lavish lifestyle, his laser focus on his goals and his gratitude for his good fortune. In addition to the usual witty wordplay and cultural references, Wale includes a timely shout-out to Pro Era member Capital STEEZ, who passed away at the age of 19 on Christmas Eve. For those who haven’t already copped the set, Folarin is available right here in The DJBooth for free streaming and download. Stay tuned to our front page for all the latest on the emcee’s plans going into 2013.
