Wale performs during Winterfest 2016 at Philips Arena on Dec. 10, 2016 in Atlanta. 

Going purely off his recent string of releases from "Running Back" to "Fashion Week," Wale has so many loosies in the stash. Perhaps that's why it's no surprise the D.C. rep has released a new mixtape before his album titled Before I SHINE with Every Blue Moon's DJ Luna.

The 11-track set includes all his previous drops, including the sports-heavy "Heisman Watch," the J. Cole response record "Groundhog Day," and his remix of Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You." Folarin also sprinkles in a few freestyles for fans' listening pleasure. 

Prepare for Wale's upcoming album Shine with the Before I Shine 'tape below.
