Even though DMV ambassador Wale lives quite the life, he too can have a bad week. On Tuesday, while witnessing his Washington Wizards lose to the Toronto Raptors, Wale got clowned by a Toronto announcer, who called him a “local rapper’ and said he is “no Drake.” Needless to say the MMG artist was not pleased and confronted the announcer whilst the game was in progress. To make matters worse, last evening, Wale’s driver was stopped for doing 58 in a 55, making Wale late to a gig in Baltimore. One bright spot over the past seven days, however, is the release of the visuals for Street Runner. With a high-octane Beat Billionaire production behind him, Wale dons a charismatic flow reminiscent of his younger days, while he does it big in the City of Sin. After the week he has had, maybe a night out in Vegas may be just what Wale needs. Street Runner can be found on Wale’s Folarin mixtape, available for stream and download right here in The DJBooth.
