Wale Hoping To Standout Sonically & "Show Range" On His Third Solo Album

Wale dishes out the details on his third album, says it'll likely take him back to a more exciting time musically.

As part of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, D.C. rapper Wale hasn’t had too many opportunities to flaunt his creativity as a solo artist as of late, but the opportunity to shine as a solo emcee will likely come with the release of the rapper’s third album.

While speaking with MTV News, Wale spoke on taking a new approach with his next studio album. An approach that he says will consist of taking the music back to a more exciting time personally.

“I just wanna show range,” Wale explained. “I proved a lot to my peers and to myself and to my fans so I just wanna take it back to something a little more exciting. When the music was most exciting to me. Kinda like when I was in my best pocket…Just for being swarmed in my own stuff and doing Self Made and all those things. I haven’t had an opportunity to stand on my own sonically as an artist as much as I would like. This new project I’m working on is definitely allowing me to do that.”

Fans of Wale will likely have to endure a bit of a wait when it comes to the release of the rapper’s third album since he fully plans on taking his time with this project.

“It’s not coming as quick as like a lot of other projects. Self Made I could just hit a beat, but now I’m like ‘Alright, I don’t like the strings. Take that out. Let’s try this. I don’t like the percussion so let’s change the snare.’ I might be doing it myself on some of the songs on there so it’s a little bit different,” said the rapper.
