When it comes to Wale, there is much more than meets the eye. While stereotypes may have surrounded the dreadlocked rapper initially, his music has helped everyone realize the depth to this D.C. MC. Just to add another layer to Wale‘s cake, he decided to release today’s Song of the Day, “Sight of Sun (Freestyle)”.
Sampling “Sight of Sun” by the Grammy-winning band Fun., Wale offers up one minute and forty-five seconds of lyrical wonderment. Wale covers numerous topics including trust, his relationship with his mother, and even takes the time to give a shout out to the producers of the HBO series Girls, which “Sight of Sun” is a track included on the show’s soundtrack.
There may have been a time when Wale seemed like just another rapper. But tracks like “Sight of Sun (Freestyle)” show what a true lyricist can do in under two minutes.
