WALE

Speaker

There’s only one Wale. An old-school lyricist with new-school energy, otherworldly hooks, and a sense of irony tailor-made for its own Seinfeld episode, he instantly set himself apart. 2008’s inventive Mixtape About Nothing cemented him as a critical favorite, which he followed with major-label debut Attention Deficit in 2009. The Gifted and The Album About Nothing both crashed the Billboard Top 200 at No. 1 back-to-back. And Shine gave the world “My PYT." To date, Wale has achieved four platinum or multi-platinum singles, three gold singles, and two gold albums. 

Wale also made history as the first rapper to open a State Of The Union. A regular guest of the former First Family, he participated in Michelle Obama’s “Reach Higher” initiative for higher education, as well.

Expanding his cultural influence, Wale also teamed up with Villa for a limited-edition line of sneakers. These included the Asics “Bottle Rocket,” the Timberland “Gift Box Set” and the VILLA x Wale x ASIC Gel Lyte III "IC Champion.” Wale’s label imprint, Every Blue Moon, encompasses the scope of his creative vision with musicians, comedians, and screenwriters under its umbrella.
