For the past 15 months, Wale has been working on SHINE, the follow-up to his 2015 full-length album The Album About Nothing.
The MMG emcee is not ready to officially announce a release date for the project, but we can confirm that he has finished recording.
"[It's] done, complete," Wale told us via text.
Moneybagg Yo, Mick Jenkins & Bktherula: Best of the Week
Moneybagg Yo, Mick Jenkins, and Bktherula had the best new songs on Audiomack this week.
Since releasing his free Summer on Sunset mixtape last June, Wale has unleashed a slew of singles, including "Smile" with Phil Adé, "Groundhog Day," "Running Back" with Lil Wayne and, most recently, "Fashion Week" with G-Eazy.
On May 5, the DC native will kick off a band-backed, 15-date tour in support of the forthcoming album with a concert at The Tabernacle in Atlanta.
"This is the tour they've been waiting for," said Wale. "[It will be] go-go mixed with hip-hop."
