Wale and J. Cole Reunite on 'Poke It Out'
J. Cole keeps the collabs coming.
Following his guest verse on Joyner Lucas’ “Your Heart,” he reunites with Wale on the latter’s new single “Poke It Out,” their first collaboration in three years.
The electrifying track, produced by Cool & Dre, finds the two rapping over a sample of Q-Tip’s 1999 hit “Vivrant Thing.” Wale spits game to the ladies, while Cole flexes on his swaggering verse.
“Cole World and Folarin, co-starrin’ / We both flexin’,” he raps before taking shots at the competition. “These cap ni**as that rap with piss poor jargon.”
Later, Cole shouts out Megan Thee Stallion and Coi Leray: “Poke it out / I wanna see you play / Whether you Meg Thee Stallion or like Coi Leray.”
This marks the first collaboration between the two since “My Boy (Freestyle)” in 2018.
“Poke It Out” is set to appear on Wale’s seventh studio album, Folarin 2, due Oct. 22.
