Wale discusses MMG deal, Ambition album + more [Video]

Wale‘s path to the top is as inspiring as it is disheartening. After his first taste of a major label deal was a sour one (Interscope allegedly undershipped his debut album Attention Deficit, leaving his future in limbo and his mindset in depression), the DC rapper has since picked himself up, wiped the dirt off his shoulders and claimed his ticket on the MMG enterprise.

Catching up with Hypetrak TV’s Aymen Ahmed in Paris recently, Mr. Folarin speaks in more detail about how the Maybach Music deal came about, the “self made” ethos and what demographic he believes his new music (namely his Ambition album) speaks to. Watch the conversation below.
