At the beginning of this year, Wale announced that his fifth album will be entitled Shine, but he didn't give anymore details. However, releasing one album this year wouldn't be enough in Wale's eyes -- he hopes he can drop two before the end of 2016.
In a interview with Complex during SXSW, Wale revealed that Shine, which is an acronym for "Still Here Ignoring Negative Energy," is 80% done and is going through the final post production stage. He then went on to say that another album may be on the horizon if the executives at Atlantic Records gives him the green light.
Along with trying to follow the DMX two albums in one year model, Wale unveiled that he will be executive producing MMG's Self Made 4 compilation album. Looks like it's going to be a busy year for Florian. Check out the interview below.
