Wale, Kid Cudi, Drake, and J. Cole, came out of that same draft class — making their way into the industry. As time will better tell it, they’ve each had their fair share of ups but have also experienced, down moments. Wale’s descending marks serve more as learning ground — sometimes opting to put it in his music or sometimes express it another way. Cole, a close friend in and out of the music industry to Wale, released a track titled “False Prophet.” The song appeared in Cole’s “Eyez” documentary and will appear on Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only project dropping on Dec. 9.
I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad/He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that’s been had/ By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin’/ Talkin’ ’bout, n*ggas don’t fuck with him, the shit is depressin’
Hearing the song and filled with inspiration from the track, Wale releases “Groundhog Day.” Arguably, it’s the Wale that we heard on a track like “The Problem.”
I’m heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet
