Wale Gets in the Holiday Spirit With ‘Festivus’ Mixtape
DMV vanguard Wale returns with his latest project in the form of the 'Festivus' mixtape.
Reviving the Seinfield theme the rapper implemented on earlier releases, Mr. Folarin looks to silence his detractors and the naysayers this go-round.
Serving as a precursor to his upcoming major label album, 'The Album About Nothing,' scheduled for release on March 31, 'Festivus' is more of a free-wheeling showcase of Wale's skills rather than a terse, focused effort.
The tape is 11 songs deep and features appearances from the likes of Pusha T, A$AP Ferg, Fat Trel and Chance the Rapper. Ab-Soul and Magazeen join forces on the mellow groove of 'Keep It Moving' while Wale shines solo on 'Girls on Drugs,' which samples Janet Jackson's 'Go Deep.'
The production talent features a varied cast of boardsmen, including longtime collaborators Best Kept Secret and Tone P, as well as Lee Majorz, THC and Flexx Beat,s among others.
'Festivus' comes right in time for the holidays and should make every Wale fan's holiday even more memorable.
