Wale’s The Album About Nothing, one of this year’s most anticipated rap albums, was released late Monday night (March 30) and the MC celebrated the project with a star-studded show at SOB's in New York.
"I wanted to do a real live jam session in an intimate spot for the diehard fans,” Wale said via Instagram. "This will be a memorable...show! Small and wall-to-wall like a real hip-hop show.”
Folarin, who happens to be an avid wrestling fan, hit the stage while sporting a championship belt that would even make The Rock proud. The MC was definitely in full celebration mode. I mean, he even moon walked on stage.
Moonwalking is dope, of course, but the night wouldn’t have been complete without Wale’s superstar friends in the building.
So J. Cole (who appears on The Album About Nothing’s “The Pessimist”) hit the stage for “Beautiful Bliss,” “A Tale of 2 Citiez” and “No Role Modelz.” Then, he really broke things down with a celebratory toast to Wale’s career.
Cole wasn’t the only star to join Folarin on stage as Meek Mill also came through for “Ambition” and a show-stopping rendition of his “Dreams and Nightmares” intro, a cut Drake once called "one of the best rap moments of our generation."
As if that star-studded event wasn’t enough, Wale also released "The White Shoes" music video, a cautionary look into the dangers of sneaker culture.
His latest project might be called The Album About Nothing, but Wale definitely had something special to celebrate here. Listen to Wale's latest Seinfeld inspired project now.
