Wale's been in the headlines lately for less than positive reasons, most recently for being the target of scrutiny following the release of the video for his song “Pretty Girls.”
As previously reported journalist Joy Daily bashed Wale for featuring light skin and Hispanic women in the production calling for a boycott of his video.
Now shaking off the criticism as he rightfully should, Wale's moving on to announce another set of tour dates to his already busy schedule.
Wale is announcing plans to team up with International rapper K'naan to co-headline Easter tour dates.
Both MCs noted for their African descent, are kicking off their tour on March 31 in New York with stops in Atlanta, Philadelphia and Cleveland before wrapping up April 14 in Columbus, Ohio.
K'naan will perform solo however for two dates in Chicago and Williamsburg, Virginia.
Wale will also perform at Bonnaroo, Sasquatch and the Coachella festival this summer.
