Wale has a lot to smile about these days. The Maybach Music rapper is poised to enter at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with his sophomore album Ambition. We caught up with him during his trip to Los Angeles this week, where he shared his admiration for Drake and hopes for a joint tour with Drizzy and J. Cole.
While he has yet to hear Drake’s sophomore album Take Care, he plans to buy 20 copies when it drops. “I love his music, man. I love what his music stands for,” Wale told Rap-Up TV. “You gotta start talking about Drake after this album, if it delivers, as top 10. … Dude makes incredible music and he’s one of my favorite rappers.”
The two have recorded one song together and Wale is also thinking about doing a remix. “Me and Drizzy do have something coming,” he teased.
Also on his wish list is a joint tour with his peers. “I talked about doing a tour. I told Drizzy about it. I said, ‘Yo, me, you, and Cole should do a tour. I don’t care if I gotta go first. I’m all about the fucking culture. This is gonna be like the ‘Hard Knock Life’ tour of our generation.”
