Wale is currently working on his upcoming LP, The Album About Nothing, and revealed two names he’s tapped into for the project.
“I’m working a lot,” the rapper told MTV News. “I’m doing a lot with J. Cole. I worked with DJ Premier so far. And I’m working with a lot of producers under my camp, Every Blue Moon.”
Like Kanye West, the MMG rapper is looking to keep things in house with his own imprint that will expand to include artists and designers.
“Every Blue Moon is my imprint,” he explained. “It’s not just for recording artists. We’re collaborating with painters. I’ve collaborated with [visual artist] Jay West. He’s not signed to me, but I’ve collaborated with him. We’re gonna do a lot of stuff in the fashion world, as well. I’m working with my man Brock Korsan, he’s A&Ring the project, along with Dallas Martin. And I’m doing a lot of things with Nicky Diamonds,” Wale explained. “I just wanna affect the culture and wanna be able to support young people with goals that aren’t just limited to rapping and producing.”
Look out for the DC rappers fourth LP due out this fall.
