Wale - The Followers

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Wale
  • Track: The Followers
  • Producer: Pro Reese, Marce Reazon
  • Album: Mass Appeal Compilation Vol. 1

Update: The Jon J and Shaun Ross-directed visuals for Wale's The Followers single have been added.

Yesterday, Maybach Music labelmates Wale and Meek Mill became the subject of the Twitter-verse's latest tempest in a tea kettle when he latter lashed out at the former for failling to retweet a tweet announcing his sophomore album. Yeah, that's literally it. But hey, that pointless story made a good segue into talking about Wale's latest loosie, The Followers. On this understated jam, Mr. Akintimehin takes some time out to contemplate his place in the hip-hop game, interweaving his reflections with sophisticated, pop-referential punchlines. Pro Reese and Marce Reazon produce the jam's head-noddable, guitar-laced backdrop. Followers isn't part of a larger set, but fans should keep it locked for the latest from Wale, including release details on his upcoming Album About Nothing.
