It’s been a minute since I’ve listened to Wale, but man this is golden!
It may not feel like it, but Wale has an album dropping tomorrow and The Album About Nothing is some of his best work to date. The D.C. emcee comes through with a masterful, new video on the eve of his LP’s release.
“The White Shoes,” Folarian’s ode to sneaker culture and the inspiration that a clean pair of white sneakers can be for the less fortunate, is one of TAAN‘s highlights. The video’s a solemn tale that has become all too familiar with a teenager being robbed and killed over a pair of those white shoes. Backed by the track, the backstory of what it took and meant to attain that pair of sneakers, the resolution packs a punch.
The Album About Nothing is in stores tomorrow, March 31st.
