Wale has developed a new song, and no it’s not a response to Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse, but an anthem for Robert Griffin III’s documentary titled “RGIII: The Will to Win.”
Gatorade and the famed quarterback presented the opportunity to the “LoveHate” rapper to record “No Pain No Gain” which speaks on triumph and obstacles.
“It’s just a no-brainer to me because I’m a big supporter of Rob and everything that he’s been doing and what he stands for, as well as Gatorade,” he said in an interview with Hip Hop Wired. The Washingtonian and loyal Redskins fan said he had to take a walk in RG3’s cleats to get a sense of how to portray the Baylor University attendee on record.
“If I was telling a story to get inside of Robert's mind, what would he say? That's pretty much it."
Check out a preview of the upcoming film set to air August 27 on ESPN and listen to the song below.
