Wale Folarin II Lyrics, Folarin II Lyrics by Wale
American rapper, Wale has released his sophomore album, ‘Folarin II’ via Maybach Music Group LLC/Warner Records Inc.
Samples have long been part of the lifeblood of Wale’s catalog, but on Folarin II, they are prominent, offering insights about who and what has inspired the D.C. rapper. “I give flowers to my inspirations, my OGs, my contemporaries, my peers, and myself,”.
The three lead singles were the first hint. “Angles,” “Down South,” and “Poke It Out” all are built around the familiarity of their samples: Diddy’s 2002 “I Need a Girl (Pt. 1),” Mike Jones’ 2004 “Still Tippin’,” and Q-Tip’s 1999 “Vivrant Thing,” respectively. Each one is designed to play on nostalgia, while also spotlighting Wale’s dexterity.
Other gems include the regret-tinged “Dearly Beloved,” which features a dazzling loop of Jamie Foxx’s performance on his eponymous TV show, and the flirtatious “Caramel,” which functions as an homage to legendary producer (and D.C. native) Chucky Thompson, who died in August of 2021 from COVID complications.
