Wale had me nervous when he released P.Y.T. and this new mixtape, Summer on Sunset, was a little iffy for me. Out of the 17 songs, I like about 3 or 4 of them. I decided to to download the mixtape before listening and now I’m like:
Wale attempted to incorporate the trap sound wave and it was a fail. He is best when he doesn’t try to fit in with the trends in music. There just wasn’t a lot of stand out tracks for there to be 17 songs.
Summer on Sunset comes with a few features from includes Raheem DeVaughn, Ty Dolla $ign, Cam’ron and Eric Bellinger among others. The mixtape follows Wale’s last full-length project, the “Seinfeld”-themed The Album About Nothing, which he released in March 2015.
