“The Followers” will appear on Wale’s forthcoming upcoming album, titled “Album About Nothing.” The Pro Reese and Marce Reazon-produced track features a quote from the popular ‘90s sitcom “Seinfeld.” Listen below.

The early release of the track is in response to a social media feud between Meek Mill and Wale. The disagreement erupted between the Maybach Music Group artists earlier today (July 8) after Mill tweeted that Wale wasn’t supporting him by promoting his upcoming album, "Dreams Worth More Than Money,” due Sept. 9.
