Wale also drops a cut from the project titled “Freedom of Speech.”
Since yesterday, Wale has been teasing that he had a big announcement to make at 5 p.m. today.
Taking to Twitter, the Maybach Music Group signee revealed that he plans to release the new mixtape Folarin, which gets its title from his last name. He said that the project is in collaboration with DJ Clark Kent and will release on December 24th.
“Thank yall for the patience …. limelinx.com/dejycdj clark kent x Wale #folarin dec 24th,” he tweeted.
Wale is also working on his upcoming third solo album, which he previously said was taking slower than usual. “It’s not coming as quick as like a lot of other projects,” he said. “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.”
