D.C. rapper Wale brings new material to Celine


Rapper Wale wants to reassure his fans that “Everything Is Fine” during his autumn comeback tour of the same name, a tour that fortuitously happens to be kicking off in Florida. Things have been a little quiet for the D.C. MC of late, but new summertime singles “On Chill” and “BGM” – short for “Black Girl Magic” and released on Women’s Equality Day in August – are evidence of a sublime return to form. And sure enough, last week the rapper, who came to fame on the strength of his 2008 Seinfeld-sampling The Mixtape About Nothing, announced the October release of imminent and incredibly titled sixth album Wow … That’s Crazy with a video trailer featuring actress/ice skater Tetona Jackson as his therapist. The possibility of hearing Wale work out new material on stage makes this show’s prospects even better.
