Releases “Nike Boots”

Date: November 2007

Hypemeter: 60%

Complex says: Just after gracing his first national mag cover, Wale drops another banger in “Nike Boots.” The song doesn’t appear on any of Wale’s full length projects, but it gains tremendous steam locally and moderate success on a national level. Eventually Lil Wayne spits a verse for the remix—a milestone in any artist's career. A video for the song is shot and released over a year later in December of ‘08.
