As “Faces” fades in, Wale steps up to the mic and explains, “The goal is to never be content with the present. We move fast; we think forward.” So it only makes sense that the D.C. rapper’s experimental collaboration with Cloudeater would receive such an eclectic rework.
For those who may be unfamiliar, wonky is fun word used to describe experimental blends of hip-hop and electronic music. Some might say producers like Flying Lotus personify the genre. I’m inclined to use the word when describing U.K. -based producers, but at the end of the day I think we can all just agree that wonky is a great word.
