This is how the hell you win in this game. After parting ways with Atlantic and (subsequently) dropping a slew of musical firebombs, D.C.’s own Wale has found himself a new home with Warner Bros. Records. Also in partnership with Maybach Music, Folarin reportedly celebrated the new deal alongside Rick Ross, Warner Bros. co-chairman/COO Tom Corson, Warner Music Group CEO Stephen Cooper, Spotify’s head of urban Carl Chery and several other big label figures.
Said Wale on the new venture (source):
This is an exciting step for me. I am thrilled to be at a company that is willing to showcase my artistry, while supporting my entrepreneurial spirit. I felt their passion, commitment and enthusiasm from day one. They believed in my vision wholeheartedly, and I am ready to show and prove.
I, for one, am very excited to see what Wale has in store for 2018 and beyond. Congrats.
