Wale got conceptual with his It’s Complicated EP in March, and now he’s getting back to the bars with his new release “Negotiations.”

On “Negotiations,” Wale gets some things off his chest, taking shots at naysayers and venting about the industry – while showcasing some of the lyrical firepower that earned him a spot in the biz. The release follows an active year for the DMV native: since leaving Atlantic Records, he’s dropped this song, “All Star Break Up,” “Staying Power,” and a four-song EP called It’s Complicated. With a good mix of bars and concepts, it looks like Wale is ready to make his mark on 2018.
