Wale Suggests Future Jordan Brand Collaboration

June 5th, 2013 By

Is Wale finally getting some love back from the Beaverton team? In a recent radio interview, he hinted at the fact that he might have something in the works with Jordan Brand. He didn’t shed any light on the project, but there does exist a precedent for rapper-inspired retros thanks to the Air Jordan IV “Eminem”, so we’d say there’s an outside chance at that. Also perhaps playing into things is the MMG rapper’s just launched beanie brand WRKNG TITLE, which would be a bit more of a feasible route for a collab. Continue reading to see the Power 105 interview and question and let us know if you’d like to see a Wale x Jordan Brand project.

Wale and Nas Wearing Air Jordans

October 15th, 2012 By

Were Wale and Nas coordinating outfits for the most recent Heineken Red Star Access show? Seems like a bit of a stretch, but both rappers did indeed lace up in Jordan Brand releases. Nas picked an early pair, going with the Jordan Spiz’ike in gym red that’s right around the corner. Wale went for the charity release Air Jordan II ‘Doernbecher’, no doubt one of the under appreciated models from that lineup.

Diggy Simmons, Waka Flocka, and Wale in Air Jordans @ DJ Prostyle Birthday Bash

May 4th, 2012 By

His competition was stiff, and we’re giving a special tip of the hat to the Air Jordan selections among them: Diggy Simmons busting out the Air Jordan VI ‘DMP’ to go with his gaudy gold H&M x Versace jacket, Waka Flocka also wearing the blue/orange Air Jordan IV’s a little early, and Wale representing with the sole OG colorway among them in the form of the Air Jordan VII ‘Bordeaux’.
