Wale is currently on a promotional tour for his 3rd studio album The Gifted, released on June 25. The album features collaborations with Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Rihanna, J Cole, Cee-Lo Green and more including the hit single “Bad”.
Wale chopped it up with 92Q’s Rap Attack crew to talk about the excitement surrounding his new album, what the loss of Meek Mill’s protege Lil Snupe means to the future of hip hop, the departure of Tiara Thomas plus that infamous IG photo of himself, J Cole and Kendrick Lamar picstitched above Kanye, Jay Z and Nas.
When asked about his thoughts on Tiara Thomas parting ways with Wale, the artist clearly felt betrayed, especially when he did all he could do for the artist just off of loyalty alone.
“No…it’ll take a while for me to do that again. I got trust issues already. I got artists that I am helping but it will never be at that capacity again,” Wale confirms.
