Wale Announces New Mixtape ‘Folarin,’ Drops ‘Freedom of Speech’

Wale is giving a gift to his fans this Christmas. The Maybach Music MC has announced that his next mixtape, Folarin, will drop on Christmas Eve.

He previewed the DJ Clark Kent-hosted project by dropping the first single “Freedom of Speech.” Produced by No Credit, the soulful record samples Willie Hutch’s “Brother’s Gonna Work It Out” and includes a sound bite from President Obama’s victory speech.

Wale is working on his third album, which is set for release in early 2013.
