[EP] Wale x A-Trak – “Festivus”

Wale closes the year with a strong EP.

Billed as an EP, Wale and A-Trak’s can actually be viewed as a full album due to its 11-track length. The appeal can be heard from intro, where Wale rips it over a soulful palette from Lee Majorz. Outside of a random throwaway trap track like “Loyalty,” the production remains uniform and is a throwback to Wale’s rise on mixtapes in 2006-2007. Lyrically, the Washington D.C. spitter is sharp and sounds hungry and takes a backseat to none of the guests (Pusha T, Ab-Soul, ASAP Ferg etc.).

Wale fans should be pleased.
