Washington, D.C. emcee Wale returns with the release of his 7th studio album, “Folarin II”.
“My daughter is talking to her mother one time and she was like, ‘Respect the kids. Respect the kids.’ They were playing, but she was being serious and that’s part of it,” Wale explained to XXL. “The inner child of me, you know, “Still Tippin’,” “Vivrant Thing,” “I Need a Girl,” all these samples are coming from back in the day when I was a kid. I’m sampling way more than normal, so, it feels like a mixtape. I’m giving people their flowers and I’m getting mine.
The 15-track LP comes equipped with contributions from Yella Beezy, Maxo Kream, J. Cole, Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Boyz II Men, Jamie Foxx and Ant Clemons.
