June is already a huge month for hip-hop with ‘Ye, Mac and Cole all releasing projects on the 18th, but let’s not forget about one of rap’s most misunderstood figures, Wale. His Gifted album is set to drop on June 25, and it’s already chock full off features like any good MMG release. Today, however, marks the release of Rotation, a standout selection off the forthcoming set. Kanye-bred producer Travi$ Scott, along with co-producer ADOTHEGOD, gives the beat his signature pounding drums and the feeling of a dark backstage crowded with smoke, while Wale stays true to his lyrical roots even alongside polarizing rapper 2 Chainz and crossover superstar Wiz Khalifa. After reading who worked on this track, need I even say more before you listen? Watch for the full project from Rozay’s right hand man to drop in two weeks.
