It has already been noted here on Musical Breakdown that Wale is the best lyricist on the MMG label and that he has even transitioned into more of a mainstream, club rapper than ever before. Although his newly released album The Gifted does included a plethora of tracks with lyrical value but some of the most anticipated joints, including today’s Song of the Day, are those meant for the club.
Dedicated to all those ladies with an extra-large posteriors, “Clappers” is a track nobody would have expected from Wale after the release of his debut album. With a hate it or love it chorus, Wale is joined by Nicki Minaj and Juicy J who show there love for those who can do a little twerking.
Call it adapting, evolving, or changing, Wale is no longer that independent rapper who slowly emerged from D.C. with a story to tell. He is ready for the limelight, for better or worse, and he is here to stay.
