Though he has become adept at coming through with romantic gems, one mustn't forget that Wale can rap alongside anyone in the game. He's done it before, and on Lil Lo's brand new single "Nothin," he damn sure does it again. Taking to a hard synth-driven beat from KO, Lil Lo sets it off with an infectious chorus, navigating the eerie soundscape with a blend of melody and bars; it's a style we've become relatively familiar with of late, but that's not necessarily a complaint.
Here, Lo proves he's up to the challenge of standing out, holding his own alongside one of the game's underrated spitters. By the time Wale comes around to let fly a salvo of bars, the stage has already been set. He proceeds to snap, firing off lines like "n***as be wilin, these n***as be bluffin / your sister a rollie, your mother a clocker / your father a snitch and you gotta be sick cause with all of that mixed don't nobody here love ya."
N***as be wilin, these n***as be bluffin
Your sister a rollie, your mother a clocker
Your father a snitch and you gotta be sick
Cause with all of that mixed don't nobody here love ya
