Wale Folarin – The Next Big Thing!
Rolling Stone says he has more crossover appeal than weed (oooh, that’s serious!), and he has been featured in several magazines including the New York Times, Boston Globe, Entertainment Weekly, Washington Post, Vibe, Complex, Hiphopgame.com, AllHipHop.com, Entertainment Weekly, and The Source.
Like most of the African musicians we have featured, he has managed to get a heavy rotation on the largest radio stations without being signed to a record label. His shows have been sold-out on a consistent basis and his appeal is so great that clothing labels have taken notice. 10 Deep sponsors his hot mixtape, 100 Miles, and Starr African Rum, The Hundreds, LRG, Stussy, Jordan Brand and Nike brands have all co-signed him and we anticipate that more signings are on the way.
Touted as an innovator in the music industry, Wale is poised to become one of the biggest sounds in the industry. Like Tabi Bonney, he is determined to highlight the other side of Washington DC, the town he grew up in, so people understand that there is more to it than politics.
