Being buddies with Wale clearly has its perks. To honor the upcoming release of his third album, The Gifted, and to show his appreciation to the team behind him, the MMG rapper bought all the Nike Air Jordan 3s at Flight Club in NYC. 

The history behind Michael Jordan’s third signature sneaker isn’t lost on Mr. Folarin, and he’s applying some of the mythos to his own career. “Jordan in ’88, when he jumped from that free throw line, iconic,” says Wale. “In sneaker culture the 3s was a consensus sneaker. The 3s were general consensus sneaker in which many sneaker heads favor the most. And that’s just the moment where everything became trill for MJ. This is my third album. This is when everything is about to get trill for Wale and Wale fans.”
