Wale and Travis Scott Rap About an Epic Night on New Song “Fish n Grits”
Wale is finally gearing up to drop his highly anticipated album, Shine. Today (April 6), he releases the cover, tracklist and release date for his forthcoming LP, plus his Travis Scott-assisted new single "Fish n Grits." Cop it on iTunes or stream it via Spotify below.
The new record is a wonderful combination of sounds that sit on total opposite ends of the hip-hop spectrum. Travis' more Auto-Tune-dominant style blends well with Wale's poetic delivery for "Fish n Grits," which also features a lovely piano melody. For the first verse, Wale and La Flame go back and forth.
Wale raps, "Yeah, Cartier, what your wrist doing?/In the Ace with my nigga whip/Real nigga in that will and rich/I ain't stopping 'til a nigga fifty mil'/I ain't tripping 'til a nigga hundred mil'/I ain't tripping 'til I'm five hundred mil'/Funny, weighing on the money/But I'm buying ice to let all of these niggas chill." Immediately after, Travis comes in, "Never ever gotta write a will/Niggas won't beat me like Emmett Till/Niggas won't bite me like Holyfield."
Some listeners may cringe at the Emmett Till line but most will probably love the song.
Shine is set to drop on May 5 and features 14 tracks with guest appearances from Lil Wayne, G-Eazy, Chris Brown and more. Wale previously released his single “Running Back” featuring Wayne and before that, “My PYT,” which dropped last year.
