Album Cover: Wale – ‘The Gifted’

The Gifted

As he gets closer to the release of his third album The Gifted on June 25, Wale unveils the artwork. The Maybach Music rapper illustrates the different aspects that make up his life including his hometown of D.C., money, women, and faith. A stone bust of his face appears on the cover, designed by tattoo artist Mister Cartoon.

The album’s first single “Bad” featuring Tiara Thomas is currently No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the follow-up “LoveHate Thing” will premiere on Monday.

He has also recorded a mysterious collaboration with Rihanna.

What do you think of the artwork? Sound off below.

    @Thor!, AND? Are you really dumb enough to believe that all Africans ARE or MUST be born in the continent? Wale is NIGERIAN AMERICAN, which means he was BORN in the USA. His parents are from Nigerian but Wale is very proud of his roots. If you knew a thing about him, you’d know that.

    @Grace, you are a stupid bitch! What do you know is the meaning of home town? So if your parents are from ohio and they gave birth to you in london, you say your hometown is london? FYI I AM NIGERIAN!

    @Thor, your hometown is where you’re born, not where your parents are born.

    Thor Reply:

    @Sam, i was really thinking about it and it occured me, america doesnt have that culture. Wherever you’re born is your hometown. In africa, your hometown is where your dad, grand dad, great grand dad etc are from. You’all com from the same place and it continues on and on!
