Wale joins Shaheem Reid for Life + Times’ “The Round Up” at New York City’s Quad Studios to speak on his upcoming album, The Gifted, his favorite Nike Famposite sneakers, and “starting from the bottom” back in DC.
With The Roots backing, and his new artist Tiara Thomas on the guitar, Wale performed his latest single “Bad” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. His upcoming album, The Gifted, will arrive June 25.
Wale sat down with Sway to talk about The Gifted due out June 25th (tentatively), working with Stokely Wilson of Mint Condition and his love for Seinfield and comedy.
Comedy’s art, man. The ability to make somebody feel something: that’s art,” Wale said. “However you look at it, whether you’re an author, a painter, a singer, a rapper, a spoken-word artist — art. So I see the art in the show. I see the art in the dialogue in the show, how you can conceptualize some of the conversations that they have on that show. It’s a lot of genius that goes into that, and I appreciate it.
