The rapper-singer and songwriter Wale visited Chicago for Black History Month at the AT&T flagship store. Wale was named “Dream In Black” 2020 Future Maker along with Clifford “T.I.” Harris and Angela Simmons. The initiative shines the light on those individuals who have added value to Black culture through their talents.
Kyle Santillian of WGCI held a fireside conversation with Wale. When speaking of his honesty as an artist, Wale shares “If you can’t talk about your truth you probably shouldn’t be making music or any art. It’s got to be honest. This music is about being honest for real.”
When asked how he feels about the state of Hip-Hop Wale stated “Its good. Hip-Hop has been evolving ever since most of us were even born. It’s evolving now. I think it’s in a good place.”
Wale closed the event out with a few of his hit songs and thanked his fans for supporting him throughout his career.
