In honor of Juneteenth, the D.C. rapper, Wale delivers his surprise EP, The Imperfect Storm. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Wale hit the studio and recorded the six tracks “with a revolutionary spark and his ancestor’s spirit.”
The D.C. rapper, who is nominated for Best Collaboration at the BET Awards, makes a statement on the powerful, poetic, and politically-charged tracks, which include “!,” “MOVIN DIFFERNT,” and the closer “MAAJO.”
The striking cover art was designed by Kenny Huyng and features a scene from the protests with flames rising from a cop car on L.A.’s Fairfax Ave., signaling the oncoming storm.
