88
by Wale

Album: The Gifted (2013)
  • This song finds Wale drawing parallels between Michael Jordan and his own rapping skills, the idea being that 1988 was the first time that the basketball great was really on top of the world.
  • According to The Gifted album's official listening preview, Wale asked producer Just Blaze to give him the feeling of "those old Dipset records."

    The reference is to the Harlem-based hip hop group The Diplomats, also popularly known as Dipset who were founded by Cam'ron and Jim Jones in 1997.
