Wale heads ‘Down South’ with Yella Beezy, Maxo Kream

Wale has been on a hot streak this year with a steady string of recent singles. In January, his first release of 2021 was in the groovy “Good Vibes (Za),” catching listeners attention with its ironic summer themes.

Then in June, his second single “Angles” featuring Chris Brown made waves on Billboard’s R&B charts, as Wale’s reputation for his work within the genre has been exceptional throughout his career.

With momentum building throughout the year, he followed up those singles with his most recent drop, “Down South” with Yella Beezy and Maxo Kream. Multifaceted producer Harry Fraud handled the instrumental on this record, as hypnotic violins backed by heavy kicks and 808s gave the track its bounce.

With these eclectic artists, “Down South,” is a cohesively diverse meeting point for all three of their respective styles. All three rappers spit facts on their verses, keep listeners engaged with clever punchlines and staccato flows.

Wale’s last album, Wow… That’s Crazy, featured a variety of artists from both hip-hop and R&B backgrounds — i.e. 6LACK to Kelly Price to Lil Durk. Combined with the rest of his discography, he has delivered nothing but quality over the last 12 years.

Wale has dropped an album almost every year since 2008, so fans are overdue for a full-length release. As he keeps dropping these singles, be on the lookout for an full album roll out sometime soon.
