Wale talks about his third album and new mixtape, and the sound for each.
Wale's recently been in the news for some outburts with fans and non-fans alike. While we've been seeing the less friendly side of the emcee, what most people would like to see from the MMG artist isÂ music. Not to worry, because the rapper has an album and a mixtape on the way.
The D.C. native recently had an interview withÂ Philly's Power 99 and discussed what he has coming up.Â "I'm dropping my third solo album first, then a couple months after I'll probably drop theÂ NothingÂ project," he said. "I'm very creative, I'm knee deep in that joint. It's kind of like a persona; thing; I design my records and the sound a certain way for two different projects." On top of these two solo projects, Wale has confirmed a joint mixtape with Meek Mill, which should be arriving after his LP and mixtape.
Although Wale has beenÂ criticizedÂ for turningÂ to a more commercial or mainstream sound since signing with MMG, the rapper denied this during the interview, and says his upcoming album sounds "very, veryÂ soulful." OnÂ his involvement in his projects as far as producing goes, he says,Â "I'm not producing per say, but I'mÂ orchestrating the sound and sequencing," he says of hisÂ involvementÂ in his projects.
WaleÂ said of the negative remarks regarding his sound,Â "I don't think I ever really changed. My first album was 'asÂ commercial' if not more so than the second one."
