Earlier this month, Wale debuted his new cut "Running Back" alongside Lil Wayne on ESPN's First Take. Per Billboard, the single will be featured on his upcoming Shine album. 

The SFW studio version of the track debuts on B/R today. 

Both Wale and Lil Wayne are known as avid sports fans. As Complex's Edwin Ortiz once explained, the Louisiana-born Wayne claims the Los Angeles Lakers, Green Bay Packers and Boston Red Sox as three of his favorite teams. Wale, from the D.C. area, follows the local Washington Redskins and Washington Capitals, among other teams, per ESPN

Here's a montage of some running backs sampled in the song, including Pittsburgh Steelers star Le'Veon Bell:
