Why do we like this?

Can I be real with you for a second? I've been pretty disappointed with all the big-time hip-hop releases this summer. Kanye West's Yeezus has its moments, but too often comes up short lyrically. Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail is confusing and ultimately a little too inside the box for my tastes. J. Cole's Born Sinner is good, but not like go-out-and-buy-that-album-immediately-good, in my humble opinion.

That leaves us with Wale, whose new album The Gifted is one I'm still getting to know. One standout for me so far has been "LoveHate Thing." I love hearing Wale collaborate with Atlanta musician Sam Dew, who also helped produce the track. Dew's airy vocals are the perfect balance for Wale's quick flow and heavy wordplay.

Bonus: fans can check out verified "LoveHate Thing" lyric annotations by Wale here.
