Wale

Wale’s last album, Ambition, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, put his career back on track and proved he was worthy of his new Maybach Music cred. The D.C. rapper is prepping his new album, The Gifted, due June 25, in hopes of topping the chart this time around and showing he’s one of the big dogs, not just Rick Ross’ foot soldier.
