Wale pays homage to the legendary Michael Jordan on “88,” the Just Blaze-produced cut off The Gifted LP. After splurging on fans, friends, and industry favorites at world-renowned Flight Club in NYC, where he bought out every pair of the classic Air Jordan 3’s, Wale fittingly debuts his new offering on WGCI 107.5 in Chicago.

Arriving June 25, Wale’s third solo album features appearances from Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Ne-Yo, Meek Mill, Cee-Lo Green and more. Pre-order your copy on iTunes.
