Coming off the music visuals for “Back to Ballin'” with French Montana, Wale drops off another treatment to his reflective and lyrical onslaught titled, “Negotiations.”
Directed by Chris Hernandez, the D.C. rapper sits across from corporates while negotiating deals. Between wheeling and dealing with wily executives, Folarin settles into a boxing gym where spars with punching bags.
“Yeah, mind racin’, negotiatin’ my situation/I burned bridges I can’t repair so been fly lately/I’ve been peddlin’ rhymes so much my calves hurt/Fly pelican fly, Tony Montana work/Yeah I’m comfortable, tell my other label I love ’em/Create a record, collect a check, take my name from it/The face on that plain Jane can replace budgets,” raps Wale.
In related Wale news, the 33-year-old MC recently inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records. In a press release, Tom Corson, chairman of Warner Bros. expressed excitement about Wale joining the Warner team.
“I am delighted that Wale has joined Warner Bros. Records. He is a pillar in the hip-hop community and beyond; with his cultural relevance and lyrical prose, he continues to elevate the game. Wale is truly a force to be reckoned with and we look forward to a successful partnership for years to come.”
