Tomorrow may be Valentine’s Day, but it doesn’t sound like Wale will be in a romantic mood. On his sobering new song, “All Star Break Up,” the D.C. rapper wrestles with the irony of Valentine’s Day falling within the same week as NBA All-Star Weekend, which is known to turn girlfriends into gold diggers. “She says… maybe I’ll look at you Monday, thanks for this box of chocolates, and roses you hold before me / But court seats could get me 40,000 likes on my IG / Someone I like just invited me, plus I’m not even wifey / Plus you 5’9,” he’s a giant,” he raps.
After all, Wale’s no stranger to pouring heart break into his music.
