Maybach Music Group’s Wale is looking to have a busy 2013. He is steadily preparing The Gifted album while also juggling other projects. Recently Wale spoke about this busy year with MTV’s RapFix sharing that he is not concerned with sales this time around.
“I’m giving you music, I’m giving you what the people need,” he explained. “I’m tired of y’all rappers like, ‘I got four joints for the ladies, I got two for the club, I got three inspirational,’ … Nah, paint a picture, show me wassup.”
“I’m not even gonna do all that other stuff. I’ma talk with the music. Until my album drop, until June 25, I’ma talk loud with the music,” he elaborated. “I’ve done everything I could do, I’ve said everything I could say. I’ve kissed the babies, I’ve shook the hands — now let’s let the music talk because I ain’t about to come here and tell y’all exactly how I feel no more. I’ma let it all sing in the music.”

Earlier this year, Jerry Seinfeld confirmed that he will be involved in a forthcoming Wale project, The Album About Nothing. This confirmation can be viewed in the video clip below. Wale confirmed that this could be the second album released in 2013. He also confirmed that The Gifted, which will feature a collaboration with Mint Condition’s Stokley Williams, will be released on June 25, 2013. His output this year could match his album output for his career as he has only released two full-length albums thus far, 2009’s Attention Deficit and 2011’s Ambition.
