UPDATE: On ‘Smile’, Wale had a message for racist commentator Tomi Lahren (no, we don’t give a sh*t was Charlamagne Tha God thinks)…since then, Lahren has responded. You can see that exchange (which is a bit childish) below the clips.

Wale is on a tear this week (as he has been since he responded to J. Cole). Following a dope New Year’s performance at The Fillmore, the D.C. frontrunner appeared on ESPN’s First Take with collaborator Lil Wayne to perform a new track titled ‘Running Back’. Adding to that, he also liberated another new track titled ‘Smile’, which features Phil Ade. Presumably, both cuts will appear on the forthcoming album S.H.I.N.E. (Still Here Ignoring Negative Energy). Check ’em out below.
