Wale & Lil’ Wayne Partner Up On A New Track Called “Running Back”

DMV representative and MMG signee, Wale is back! Today the wordsmith returns with something new for our listening enjoyment, pairing up with Lil’ Wayne for a contagious new effort called “Running Back.” The duo recently kicked off the new year on ESPN’s First Take, and today they return on record together.

The new track will find a home on Wale’s upcoming album, SHINE, and finds the fellas giving us a dose of their respective sound. Both MC’s bring their A-game and get one hell of an instrumental to do their thing upon. They certainly don’t fall short in the process, while Wale serves up a nice way to build the hype for SHINE. Check out the track below and speak your thoughts on it after the jump. Stay tuned for much more from Wale and Lil’ Wayne coming very soon.
