A new Wale record called “Keep The Hustle,” produced by two-time Academy Award-winning composer A.R. Rahman, quietly released over the weekend.
The song appears on the soundtrack of Disney’s baseball-themed film Million Dollar Arm, due in theaters on May 13. Since the audience that will gravitate towards this music if the polar opposite of Wale’s, the MMG affiliate went a more daring route, sonically. Of course, longtime fans of the Washington D.C. spitter know that he’s rhymed over all sorts of production in the past.
The Indian influences in the cut’s sound are a testament to Rahman’s talents and ear, as he scored the entire film. Stream “Keep The Hustle” below. Be sure to give us your thoughts in the comments.
