Wale kicks off the new year with a new song featuring his fellow sports enthusiasts Lil Wayne. The rap duo premiered “Running Back” on ESPN’s First Take.

The song is far from a sports anthem. Instead, it’s a flip on a football term about women who “sell their souls” and chase after money and butt implants.

“These girls want money stacks / I want a hundred stacks / These girls selling their soul / I want my money back,” raps Weezy, adding, “We do not play games with money, mayne / She do something strange for the money, mayne / I used to play running back / I turn that football to a money bag.”

Their performance comes as Wayne just announced that he has signed LSU linebacker Duke Riley to his Young Money Sports agency. Meanwhile, Wale is working on his new album called S.H.I.N.E, which is acronym for “Still Here Ignoring Negative Energy.”
