First off: if you’re late to the party (like us), then you missed Wale’s new 4-track EP It’s Complicated, his first as a free agent (he’s still with MMG and has his own imprint, Every Blue Moon) which features a single appearance from Jacquees.

Added to that, the D.C. icon now has a new visual for another track titled “Staying Power,” which takes him throughout the city — including his mural at Ben’s Chili Bowl — and sees additional cameos from Lightshow and more. Check out both drops below.
