LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess) – Warner Bros. Records has announced that rapper Wale has joined the label’s roster ahead of the release of his sixth studio album due out later this year.
Though Wale arrives at the Warner Bros. via Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, he’s not entirely new to the WMG family. The rapper’s previous three albums were released by Warner subsidiary, Atlantic Records.
Of the signing, WBR co-chairman and COO Tom Corson said: “[Wale] is a pillar in the hip-hop community and beyond; with his cultural relevance and lyrical prose, he continues to elevate the game. Wale is truly a force to be reckoned with and we look forward to a successful partnership for years to come.”
“I felt their passion, commitment, and enthusiasm from day one,” added Wale. “They believed in my vision wholeheartedly, and I am ready to show and prove.”
