“This is the most creative musical experience I’ve ever tried to offer,” he says in regards to his fourth studio album. “One of those things that you gonna get this joint or you not. A lot of people ain’t gonna get it, but the people that get it are gonna say it’s genius. This is my moment to show what I can do from a music director standpoint.”
“Festivus ain’t nothing compared to it,” he explains. “It’s all me right now. I ain’t have no features on it, except Jeremih and J. Cole did a hook.”
The mixtape was released for free via several streaming sites including Soundcloud, DatPiff and Live Mixtapes. Wale says that despite advice from Jay Z and Rick Ross not to give out free music, the MMG rapper decided to anyways.
“I feel a little uncomfortable when I don’t give people [music],” he says. “Jay and Ross, they was like, ‘don’t drop no free project.’ I’m just like, ‘I can’t even sleep at night. I have to.’ I’m sleeping better now. I’m sleeping ’til 9 o’clock in the morning.”
