Wale performs during the 2016 BET Experience at Staples Center on June 24, 2016 in Los Angeles.

Wale has been on a roll. After delivering "Groundhog Day," "Black is Gold," and the freestyle "Folarin Like" (the latter topping the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart), the D.C. rapper flexes his sports savvy for "Heisman Watch."

"It's like I'm on the Heisman watch/ That's gotta be what would describe, symbolize I've got skill," he spits on the hook. Folarin also name-checks a slew of athletes including basketball legend Allen Iverson and football stars Desmond Howard and Randy Moss, among others. He also shouts out Jay Z's agency Roc Nation Sports. 

An avid sports fan, Wale has been a frequent guest on ESPN and even provided the theme song for the debate show First Take. 

Wale is currently prepping his fifth studio album Shine.
