Don’t expect Wale to go down without a fight. Despite teasing a potential retirement from music (though rappers have been known to bend the truth vis a vis hanging it up), Wale has delivered a new EP titled Free Lunch. Many rappers use the intro track as a platform for tone-setting and punch-swinging in equal measure, and the MMG rapper is no exception. Taking to a soulful instrumental from Paperboy Fabe, Wale addresses those in the media who label him enemy the state.
“One the best my generation but media hate me, n***a we grew up on Weezy and Baby, Lupe and Jay-Z,” he raps, “that mean I shoot you, say miss, excuse me.” Lyrically, Wale is in fine form, and while he may have a bone to pick with media as a whole, rest assured we value his contributions to the game. Enjoy your free lunch, dummy or otherwise.
Dummies could never play me
One the best my generation but media hate me
N***a we grew up on Weezy and Baby, Lupe and Jay-Z
That mean I shoot you, say miss, excuse me
Get her in tune and f The Cool, kick push to your old lady, yeah
