Ahead of New Music Friday, Wale has blessed his fans with tunes. There have been discussions about the rapper working on his forthcoming project, and on Thursday (September 30), Wale not only confirmed the title, but he has offered up a release date. Described as “his seventh and most personal studio album to date,” Wale has shared that Folarin II will arrive on October 22.
That isn’t the only music update we’ve received from the DMV icon; Wale also shared his new single “Poke It Out,” an offering that features a look from J. Cole. The Cool & Dre-produced banger samples Q-Tip’s classic “Vivrant Thing,” and the two emcees lyrically bounce their way through the familiar beat spinning bars that fans will be quoting—and dancing to—for some time.
