Wale Ready to Stand on His Own With New Project [Video]
“I just wanna show range,” Wale told MTV News. “I proved a lot to my peers and to myself and to my fans so I just wanna take it back to something a little more exciting. When the music was most exciting to me. Kinda like when I was in my best pocket…Just for being swarmed in my own stuff and doing Self Made and all those things. I haven’t had an opportunity to stand on my own sonically as an artist as much as I would like. This new project I’m working on is definitely allowing me to do that.”
Just because he knows the direction of the sound, though, doesn't mean that the release is imminent. “It’s not coming as quick as like a lot of other projects," he continued. "Self Made, I could just hit a beat, but now I’m like ‘Alright, I don’t like the strings. Take that out. Let’s try this. I don’t like the percussion so let’s change the snare.’ I might be doing it myself on some of the songs on there so it’s a little bit different."
