During a recent press conference, Wale announced that he’s starting to work on an upcoming “go-go” album as his next project.
Only a few months removed from The Album About Nothing, and yet Wale is already working on his next album. During a press conference at this past weekend’s Essence Festival, the MMG rapper revealed that he’s currently working on a new “go-go” album at the moment. If you’re unfamiliar, “go-go” is a popular music sub-genre associated with funk that originated in the Washington, D.C. area. (Learn more about it here.)
Acting more like a side project, which Wale compares to being his N.E.R.D. project, the “go-go” album isn’t going to be your typical Wale album. Wale says he’s recruited Chris Brown and Tinashe for it, and wants to get several prominent "go-go" musicians as well from the D.C. area.
Before fans are blessed with this “go-go” album though, Wale confirmed that the highly anticipated Self Made Vol. 4 from the MMG squad will be arriving first. No release date or info was revealed on that, but it definitely looks like it's coming soon.
