New Music: Wale "Staying Power"
Wale recently became a free agent after he and Atlantic Records parted ways. The rapper leaves Atlantic Records with two albums that debuted at No. 1 on Billboard, platinum singles in “Lotus Flower Bomb” and “Bad” and several Gold records including “My P.Y.T.” and “The Matrimony.” Despite the various certifications, Wale has struggled in regards to sales. Since The Gifted, Wale has seen a steep decline in sales of his following two albums which could be what led to the departure from the label. The writing was pretty much on the wall after Wale’s latest album Shine sold less than 30,000 copies in its first week.
With that being said, can't say we've ever been big fans of Wale but on this new release, "Staying Power" he goes in. He sounds hungry and ready for war asking, "Who F@cking with me?" and announcing "N!gg@s don't want no smoke with me."
Take listen and let us know what you think.
