Wale Pays Homage To Lupita, Viola & Issa
Wale has gifted us with the perfect reminder that melanin is ALWAYS poppin’. Today, the DC bred rapper released a track called ‘Black Is Gold‘. Rapping over a classic D’Angelo track (“Lady”), Wale expresses his adoration for Black Girl Magic, rhyming about Hollywood A-listers including Lupita Nyong’o, Issa Rae and Viola Davis.
Hey Ms. Lupita, I hope you know you inspired a future women for us /
Don’t know your vibe really, just know that your mother Kenyan /
Just know that melanin memorizing in every picture.
Hey Ms. Issa Rae /
Beautiful Senegalese leader with sh-t to say /
We should meet today, maybe at a Best Buy /
Lawrence high, still I’m proud Issa a savage, actually Issa nice.
Take a listen to the track below.
