On a day when a long list of powerhouse artists grace the DJBooth’s homepage together (think of the new Miami Heat), a solo effort from Mr. Folarin has also emerged for your listening pleasure. Wale’s latest effort, his first real solo feature after a relative hiatus, is the quickly paced Workin’, a track that tells listeners exactly what Mr. No Days Off has actually been up to since his debut album took off (hint: he’s talking about a more lavish style of work). UK producer Yogi puts down a heavy rock, club-ready beat for Wale to describe his latest self-proclaimed accolades - “If you call me a genius, nobody would disagree” – and the end result is a banging cut that should have Wale fans clamoring for more new work from the man. Speaking of which, while Workin’ is not on Wale’s forthcoming Seinfeld-inspired sequel project, the aloofly titled More About Nothing, the upcoming mixtape should prove to be more than worthy of a good listen if this is one of its throwaway tracks. We’ll find out for sure on August 3.
