In Spring 2013, Revolt TV cameras followed Wale as he geared up for the release of his third album, The Gifted.
During his campaign, he found time to trek to Nigeria, the country his parents immigrated from in 1979. There, the rapper connected with family he never met, as well as fans he didn’t know he had. “The whole idea of the trip was for me to find some peace within my family and bring peace to my family,” Wale explains in the trailer. “Sometimes business can get in the way.”
“Wale: I Am From” premieres on Monday (Jan. 20) on Revolt and will be followed by a live Ustream with Wale at 11 p.m.
