Songstress Tiara Thomas sat with Hot 97 to update fans on what they can expect from her in the near future. However, she couldn’t avoid questions about the elephant in the room: What happened between her and Wale?

Kanye West’s Yeezus and J. Cole’s Born Sinner were the focal points of conversation in recent weeks. Then came the announcement of Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is an entirely different animal. Not to be denied, Wale keeps his name in the mix with a live stream of his third studio album, The Gifted, exclusively through iTunes.

Many were surprised when a clearly disenchanted Wale revealed that Tiara Thomas decided to take her services to another label. Out of respect, he never disclosed where the talented singer-songwriter and MC signed. Then again, he didn’t have to. The jig was up when listeners heard Rico Love’s “turn the lights on” tag on the songstress’ re-recorded solo version of “Bad.” Today, we receive […]

Maybach Music Group unleashed a few new tracks on the Internets today. A pair of songs called “Poor Decisions” and “God Is Great” will appear on Self Made Vol. 3. The third is the highly anticipated remix of Wale’s hit “Bad,” featuring Rihanna.

Wale could have an amazing body of work on his hands if “Bad” and “Love Hate Thing” are any indication of what to expect on The Gifted. We won’t know for sure until the album drops June 25, but until then, young Folarin piques interests by giving an early look at the tracklist.

Wale’s “Bad” was a hit in the making from the very beginning. The record debuted back in March, currently sits at no. 36 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and is expected to rise even higher in coming weeks. If you ask around, many will say that the sultry vocals from songstress Tiara Thomas played a large […]

With Summer Jam just days away, Wale stopped by NYC a few days early to connect with the Hot 97 morning crew to discuss a bevy of topics. Among them was his situation with Tiara Thomas, the songstress that assisted him on “Bad.”

Wale is one day closer to releasing his third studio album The Gifted, due out June 25. Before then we get an early look at the album’s artwork, which the MMG rapper delivers today as promised.

Longtime fans of Wale will recall his 100 Miles and Running days, when his bread and butter was freestyling over unconventional pop tracks. Refer to his impressive “W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E.” if you aren’t familiar. His latest release suggests that the DMV rapper hasn’t forgotten those roots, as he drops a few bars over fun.’s popular song “Sight Of the Sun,” which is from […]

Ask any father what their greatest creation is, and they’ll undoubtedly say their child or children. And while that is usually an opinion based on the biases of a proud parent, many will agree that aforementioned statement holds damn true for Eddie Murphy’s daughter, Bria Murphy.

“Bad” took off almost immediately after Wale released his Folarin mixtape. So much so that the sultry cut has become the leading single from the MMG rapper’s forthcoming LP, The Gifted. With Tiara Thomas by his side, the DMV native further promoted the track with an intimate performance on NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

As promised, Wale released the video for “Bad” off his Folarin mixtape. The premiere comes hours after the MMG rapper announced the title and release date of his third album, The Gifted.
