Wale Returns To Go-Go With ‘Miracle On U Street’

By Ally Schweitzer


Original fans of D.C.’s biggest rapper, Wale, know that he got his start rhyming over go-go beats crafted by production team Best Kept Secret. Today, those fans must be pumped, because the ex-Marylander has put himself into the wayback machine and released “Miracle On U Street,” a feel-good song that would have made sense on a Wale tape circa 2007.

With a go-go-infused beat crafted by That Boy Good and former Best Kept Secret talent Tone P — whom we interviewed back in July — the Rick Ross-introduced “Miracle on U Street” is probably already bleeding from thousands of earbuds in the D.C. area. (If I don’t hear it on the Metro on my commute home tonight, I’ll wonder what city I’m in.)

The song won’t appear on Wale’s just-announced tape Festivus — out Dec. 23 — nor his fourth LP The Album About Nothing, slated for 2015. This one is a Soundcloud goodie. Stream it below.
