Video Premiere: Wale Featuring Big Sean, ‘Slight Work’

Wale

Wale gets his hustle on.

Wale‘s new video steps up his street art game, capturing the Maybach Music MC chilling like Banksy in sprayed-over industrial spaces… with booty-shaking dancers. Exit through the hip-hop, y’all. The track’s called “Slight Work,” but every hustler knows there’s no slacking in the rap game: “White America said I’d be doing 25-to-life/Just for that, I’m gonna blow 25 tonight,” Big Sean raps in the guest feature. We do that ish every Friday — you guys are talking about pizza toppings, right? $25 large, all pepperoni everything?

Watch Wale’s “Slight Work” video after the jump.

Wale’s got plenty of words of his own: “I can do it all, and it ain’t no problem,” he raps, going hard on bar after bar, no chorus needed. The Diplo-produced beat’s all thumping Latin rhythm and cut-up sirens, which coincidentally sound exactly like the noise Yoshi makes in “Super Mario World.” More SNES sound effects, Diplo! (When you’re not busy making electro mega-jams for Usher, that is.)

What’s slight work to Wale would wear many MCs out, but he’s not taking time to rest up — with sophomore album Ambition out last November, he’s already announced work on his next full-length as well as a video for Ambition‘s title track set to drop soon. Hope dude’s taking some naps! Work it with Wale below.
