Wale has been pretty quiet since the release of Free Lunch in September, but now he celebrates the holiday season with “Winter Wars” produced by Wallis Lane. The hook takes a sample from Nas’ Street’s Disciple track “Thief’s Theme”, adding a nice touch to Folarin’s effort.

“I take summers off ’cause I love winter beef”

In 2018 Wale didn’t produce a full-length project but all that should change now that he’s under contract with Warner Bros. Keep a lookout for plenty of Wale in 2019 and listen to the DMV rapper’s lyrical exercise on “Winter Wars” below.
