Wale Gives Us Two New Singles “Illuminate” & “New Phone”

Wale blessed us with two new records yesterday morning.  “New Phone” and “Illuminate” may not be something you’ll be dancing along to in the club, but you can appreciate the melodic beats on both of these songs.  “Illuminate” features up and comer Phil Ade, who opens the song with a strong 16, and Wale takes the hook and the second verse.  We haven’t heard anything about a new project from the MMG rapper, but after hearing these two songs, we’re hoping something is in the works.  Listen below.
