While we await Wale‘s new album, SHiNE, the grammy-nominated musician treated his New York City crowd to a taste of his Travi$ Scott collaboration. On Sunday night, Wale performed “Fish and Grits” to a rowdy crowd.
The D.C rapper’s relaxed crooning and contagious smile has given him a happy-go-lucky reputation. This contrasts against Travi$ Scott, who’s recent hit “Antidote” throws him in with the likes of Young Thug and Future — a darker genre of rap.
Wale’s recent single “MY P.Y.T” has Caribbean vibes, and contains the perfect recipe for a summer hit. The 2011 song “Lotus Flower Bomb” featuring Miguel shows that he dabbles in the funkier side of hip-hop.
Wale was buzzing at the concert where he premiered his new track, “I said not only am I gonna mosh, I’m gonna play you some sh*t that never been heard yet,” he said, “So we about to take this sh*t to the rodeo real quick.”
While the rappers’ bouncing and jumping on stage might have looked something like a hip-hop rodeo, Wale also made a reference to Travi$ Scott’s 2015 Rodeo debut album.
Adding the literal grit of Travi$ Scott to “Fish and Grits” bodes well for a complimentary collaboration. Watch this space for more new music, as SHiNE will be released later this year.
