Wale, G Herbo and Belly have collaborated on the track “Everything’s for Sale,” which will appear on the soundtrack of Epix’s new crime drama series, Godfather of Harlem.
The song opens with a somber chorus, provided by singer-rapper Belly: “That’s when my mama told my sister, ‘Ain’t no changin’ him’ / ‘He’s probably somewhere with a pistol, ain’t no saving him’ / Everything’s for sale, everything’s for sale / But not my life, not my life.”
G Herbo jumps in after, dropping fiery bars about his rise to fame: “Still hang with my homies I was outside having fist fights with / Now we boarding flights / I come from poverty, I didn’t hit the lottery / What love you got for me? Why would you lie to me?”
Later in the song, Wale spits a hard-hitting verse about police brutality. “’Cause too many them ones birthdays we stopped countin’ / Mike Brown and them, Trayvon and them / By the time this out, there’ll be another one, on God,” he raps.
“Everything’s for Sale” is the latest release from Godfather of Harlem’s forthcoming soundtrack, which was produced by Swizz Beatz. The OST will include the Rick Ross- and DMX-assisted “Just in Case,” as well as contributions from A$AP Ferg, Dave East, Skip Marley, French Montana and more. The record is expected out later this year.
