Wale has a mixtape called Festivus coming tomorrow (12/22). By the sounds of his new song “The Chess Match,” the MMG soldier, like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T. and others in his peer group, is going to a new depth of substantive lyrics. In little over a minute, Wale touches on classism, police brutality, racism, gang violence, drug dealing in the Black community and more. Check it out.
