Heaven's Afternoon
by Wale

Album: The Gifted (2013)
  • This lush, orchestral track finds Wale trading bars with his MMG running mate Meek Mill. "Born to lose, built to win," Wale spits at the start, taking the title of an unreleased Juelz Santana album before the pair proceed to celebrate their fame and fortune. "Meek and Wale are on a ton of tracks together, so we needed to figure out ways to make new sounds, to make each song sound different," MMG's A&R Dallas Martin said at The Gifted's listening session. "This was one way of doing that."
