Sometimes different aspects of the FADER come together perfectly. Like, we’re building one of those super hard 3D puzzles of the White House and then we finish it and we feel like we’ve learned about how the world is all connected and totally one interlocking cohesive unit. ANYWAY, the point is that FADER editor Nick Catchdubs went to DC to cover rising rap stars Wale and Tabi Bonney for FADER 44, and next thing we knew, the pair were playing our FADER party and Nick was doing a mixtape with Wale. Everything is connected! You can get the free, Catchdubs mixed 100 Miles and Running mixtape on Wale's MySpace page (or direct from zShare) right now, but in case you somehow need convincing, here's a preview of a mega jam from the disc. Tracklist after the jump.
