Wale is kicking off the weekend with a new tune, “Max Julien,” and the official music video for our viewing pleasure.
For the young bucks who may not know, Max Julien was an actor, sculptor, and clothing designer best known for his role as Goldie in the classic 1973 blaxploitation film, The Mack.
The infamous fur coat worn by Max in the film is now on display at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.
Wale was given special permission to use a photo of the fur coat as the cover art for his new single.
In Max Julien, Wale raps:
I been goin' through it lately Nobody give a s-- but wanna know more lately Uh, damn, I been more alone lately It's no coincidence, been sayin', "No more" lately Yeah, see, I'm selfish but never pretentious It's not potential in the friendship that come with intentions
A portion of Wale’s “Max Julien” video was filmed at the popular African restaurant Queensway in Riverdale, Maryland.
Watch the video below.
According to reports, Wale has a new home at Def Jam Recordings and a renewed focus on music!
