Wale Spits His Heart Out in New Video for “Folarin Like”
You can watch the Chop Mosley and Big Vic-directed visual above via YouTube. Throughout the nearly four-minute, black-and-white clip, the DMV artist wears a winter coat, takes sips from a bottle, and walks along the side of a street while finding his flow.
Ralph spits, “It’s December now/When they simmer down we start burnin’ ’em/It’s embarrassing/There’s literally no comparison/That’s like comparing Yogi Berra and Yogi Ferrell/I’m the coldest poet, they never show it/I show up like the fuckin’ bear from Revenant/Barely niggas is Yogi Bear in here/Mo, this is a picnic walk/I sip gin, tonic in booth then I big shit talk.”
Wale continues to drop clever sports references, and then he makes mention of an upcoming collaboration with South Korean boy band BTS. He raps, “Literally I live in Maryland, Beverly Hills and the charts/Yup, and with the pen it’s like I’m like Kemba with ball/I’m Kyrie, Jamal Crawford, guard me and you fall/Foreign features from South Korea/BTS be the shit, we about to see it/I am not North or South, I am just DMV.”
"Folarin Like" is Wale's second straight strong release. In case you missed it, the More About Nothing artist dropped "Groundhog Day" a few days ago in response to J. Cole's new track, "False Prophets."
