Wale Folarin – ‘Groundhog Day’
Wale responds to his close friend and rap peer J. Cole, as well as venting his frustration on freshly released ‘Groundhog Day‘. Earlier this week J. Cole released a documentary featuring two tracks, one of which was a highly controversial song named “False Prophets“. The verses of the track has seen fans and industry professionals suggest the rapper was airing his thoughts towards Kanye West (or Drake) and Wale. Well, it seems Wale saw that the shoe fits and felt a need to respond. That’s what he has presented above via SoundCloud. Released a couple of hours, the artist also details his struggles in the industry and accepting his flaws. As the song opens, it would be easy for people spin this as a diss due to the references. However, as song develops the lyrics would imply a more friendly tone. With Wale even stating:
“I love my brother though, that’s why it’s R.I.P to Tommy but we still bumping Cole”
The metaphor goes hand in hand with the TV show Martin, in which the actor who played “Tommy” passed away earlier this year. Produced by the legendary Jake Uno, it makes for a more sentimental release as the two collaborated in the past over one of his beats called “Winter Schemes“. A few cheeky shots were included throughout, but overall it seems like an introspective, pure response from the acclaimed rapper. Even thanking his friend for inspiring him to do better in the closing second of the song. Stream the song above now or scroll below for more of the latest.
