Album: Album About NothingReleased: 2015
A sneaker connoisseur, (he previously worked at a Footlocker in DC), Wale uses this Pro Reese-produced tune to analyze the correlation between fashion and positivity:
Take this good advice
If they're gonna judge you for life
Say we can't always be fly
We gon' be good long as them sneakers white
You'll be alright
As long as Wale is wearing his white sneakers, he feels good about himself and has the confidence to be able ignore all the negativity that society tries to heap on him.
The song is a track from Wale's The Album About Nothing, which itself was inspired by his 2007 collection, Mixtape About Nothing. Both sets were inspired by the TV sitcom Seinfeld, and were created with the assistance of Jerry Seinfeld himself. This track opens with a story from the comedian.
