Where do I begin? The first time I heard Wale was back in 2009 when he spit vicious bars for what felt like forever over Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”. Since then, we have seen one of the most promising emcees fall short of any and all expectations that he set with his fabulous mixtape releases. With one major label full-length behind him, and his latest singing to Maybach Music Group, Wale seems a tad lost. Contriving his image and lyrical content in the hopes of turning some sales his way, we now find ourselves wondering where this dude is going to take his career next. Either way, Wale has been able to keep the attention of many. With over 850,000 followers on twitter, he decided to unleash a track that has me reminiscing about the days Wale would spit raw rhymes over those irresistible go-go drums. While I have no idea where “Lacefrontin” will eventually land, if anywhere, it certainly has shown me a glimmer of hope once again for this talented artist.
