If you haven’t heard D.C. rapper Wale’s newest single featuring J.Cole, you’re missing out on a gem. “Poke It Out” is the ghetto poet’s newest track on a project dropping at the end of this month. The song is a playful bounce that almost immediately makes you nod your head.
Wale keeps the cheerful pace going as the sample of Q-Tip’s “Vivrant Thing” loops in the back. And even though both artists are more conscious in their rap style, they lighten things up for this track. This song won’t be pushing its way to the top of a music chart anytime soon but it is still a really solid record. Both Wale and J. Cole come with amazing energy and the combination of both mixes well.
And as the weather cools down, it seems like these two are heating up for the second half of 2021. After getting huge acclaim for his cover of Drake’s “Pipe Down” J. Cole is sitting close to the top of The Off-Season album that came out earlier this year. His album is in conversation to be one of the best in 2021 and he is stating his case with great feature after feature.
