Wale Joins Rap Monster for New Song “Change”
South Korea's own Rap Monster, who we profiled on our list of 10 Korean rappers you should know, is back with "Change," a brand new track and accompanying visual featuring himself and Wale. The track both rappers looking for just what their song title suggests: change.
The video begins with Rap Monster pacing back-and-forth in an open warehouse as he raps about the "everlasting stress," kids experience when they're enrolled in school. As he spits his verse, we see an exasperated looking school girl hard at work in front of a textbook. The "Change" instrumental is a vibrant one, and features singing hook from Rap Monster himself.
Next up is Wale, who serves up one of his typically socially conscious verses for the Rap Monster track, rapping about the ills of the world. "What if I could change the world but they hold back/When it's time to go the people just be mad again/What if I could change the world with a pen and pad/When it's time to vote the people turn into manakins."
Wale continues to go from there, flaunting the verbal gymnastics that have made him one of the rap game's most potent wordsmiths. By the end of the video, Wale and Rap Monster are both kicking it together on screen as Wale's verse reaches its end. You can peep the new visual for yourself below.
