Wale might not be popular amongst WashingtonD.C.basketball commentators, but fans of the MMG rapper are looking forward to his third studio album.  The new project, “The Gifted,” will be released on June 25th.

A trailer for the album teases the project’s story.  It depicts Wale chillin’ in the shadows and reciting some def poetry type ish.  “The hustler, priding his self on the very things they hate him for.  The gifted.  Aren’t we all?  I said, aren’t we all?”

His most recent release was 2011’s “Ambition.”  The album featured appearances by Kid Cudi, Jeremih, Miguel, Ne-Yo, Big Sean, Meek Mill, Lloyd and Rick Ross.  It featured the singles, Chain Music, Lotus Flower Bomb, That Way, Sabotage and Slight Work.

His current smoooooooth joint, “Bad,” is scorching up the charts.
