It would seem that Wale’s new album has been overdue for quite some time. Several years have passed since the release of his sixth studio album, Wow That’s Crazy, which included 15 tracks written by a number of acclaimed musicians
Kelly Price, 6LACK, Boogie, Bryson Tiller, Lil Durk, Ari Lennox, Jeremih, fellow Meek Mill, Maybach Music stars Rick Ross and more. In the wake of a slept-on predecessor, the project helped the D.C. veteran regain an upper hand on the Billboard 200.
Wale’s featured work has kept him busy since then, lending his intricate verses to songs by peers like Queen Naija, Rotimi, Skip Marley, THEY., Pacman da Gunman, Omarion, EARTHGANG, and Westside Gunn.

His acting talent extends beyond the world of music as Wale has become a full-fledged actor. He acted first as Chango, a Yoruba deity, for the third season of “American Gods.” Soon after, it was announced that he would star in Michael Bay’s upcoming action film Ambulance, alongside Eiza González, ake Gyllenhaal, Garret Dillahunt, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Keir O’Donnell, among others. Filming is set to begin in February of next year for that movie, which is said to revolve around two brothers who steal an ambulance during a chaotic situation.
