Fans of the Maybach Music Group, it’s time to get excited.
The rapper Wale will perform at Jorgensen on April 11 at 8 p.m.
A member of the Rick Ross label that features artists including French Montana and Meek Mill, Wale’s most recent album, November 2011’s “Ambition,” reached the No. 2 slot on the Billboard charts.
The rapper has an extensive fan base, and he’s incredibly popular with college audiences. Rumors have swirled since 2010 about a possible performance by the rapper through SUBOG.
Wale is also critically acclaimed, they especially laud his two mixtapes inspired by “Seinfeld.” “The Mixtape about Nothing” was released in 2008, and its 2010 sequel “More About Nothing” received more than 100,000 downloads in its first 90 minutes of availability. Jerry Seinfeld is collaborating with the rapper for the upcoming “The Album About Nothing.”
