Wale

Wale is one of the most idiosyncratic talents in hip-hop after unleashing his distinct mixtapes in 2005, with his debut album, “ATTENTION DEFECIT,” arriving in 2009. After signing with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group imprint in 2011, he released his breakthrough, now Gold-certified sophomore album, “AMBITION” – which spawned the Grammy-nominated, Platinum-certified hit single “Lotus Flower Bomb (feat. Miguel)” – followed by 2013’s Gold-certified album “THE GIFTED,” which debuted atop Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart and features the 2X Platinum-certified single “Bad (feat. Tiara Thomas).” Wale released his fourth studio album, “THE ALBUM ABOUT NOTHING,” his collaborative album with legendary comedian Jerry Seinfeld, in March of 2015, becoming his most eclectic, entertaining and personal album to date. “My PYT” is the first single from the Wale’s forthcoming 5th studio album SHINE, due out this Fall via Maybach Music Group/Atlantic Records. The song, which was released in May, has proven to be a summer smash, catapulting to the top of the charts at both Urban & Rhythmic radio formats, as well as skyrocketing up the Billboard Hot 100 chart, while still rising. “My PYT” received a tidal wave of critical acclaim upon its arrival, with attention paid from Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, VIBE and more. Furthermore, Wale celebrated the single with a performance of “My PYT” on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, backed by The Roots. As he puts the finishing touches on his highly anticipated new album, Wale treated fans to SUMMER ON SUNSET, a 17-track mixtape, which became an instant favorite amongst fans and critics alike, including Rolling Stone, Billboard and FADER, to name a few. Last week, Wale released his latest collaboration with sneaker boutique VILLA: The VILLA x Wale x ASIC Gel Lyte III "IC Champion," available now at www.ruvilla.com & all VILLA locations.

Most recently, Wale partook in several high profile events at The White House, including First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Reach Higher” initiative for higher education, as well as becoming the first rapper to open the State Of The Union, performing right before President Obama’s final State Of The Union Address.
