Wale Speaks His Mind And States That Being An MMG Artist Doesn’t Define Him
Wale has confirmed that MMG doesn’t define his music career. Wale’s new mixtape “Folarin” was recently released and Maybach Music Group fans were excited to hear the mixtape.
In a recent interview with Rosenberg, Wale explained how MMG doesn’t define his carrer as an artist.
“Ross don’t want our careers to be defined upon MMG. And more importantly, I don’t want my career to be defined by MMG,” Wale explained. “When you latching on and you holding on for dear life you ain’t gonna want it. Meek is my man. I ain’t gonna lie, me and Meek fought with other niggas in the street before MMG…I say that to say that my relationship with Meek is not defined by MMG. My music with Meek is not defined by MMG. My music period is not defined through MMG. It’s a vehicle and Ross wanted it to be a vehicle.”
Wale wasn’t the only one getting an interview, Clark Kent joined and spoke on how Wale has progressed as an emcee to a rapper.
“I come from the beginning of rap. I saw it start. So when I think somebody can rhyme it’s because of the actual lyrical ability. I define emceeing differently than being a rapper,” said Clark Kent. “Rick Ross is an amazing rapper. Wale is an emcee first, who became a rapper because of the songs that he made. They took him to become a rapper. But he started off as an emcee.”
Wale’s new mixtape “Folarin” features Scarface, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross and more. His mixtape was released on Christmas Eve as an early Christmas present for his fans.
