Multi-platinum rap star Wale stopped at Webster Hall on Monday, January 24th for the second show of his ‘Under A Blue Moon Tour.’ The tour comes in support of his eponymous 2021 LP Folarin II released last October on Warner Records. Support for the night came from up and coming rappers Cam Wallace followed by Guapdad 4000. See our full photo gallery below.
Coming as a sequel to Wale’s pivotal EP Folarin, Folarin II is soaked in nostalgia while looking ambitiously towards the future. Living through two years of a global pandemic has forced all of us to examine our past while forging new paths into the future. Such is the case for Wale and the lyrics on the new LP, mixing anecdotal stories with anthemic and hard hitting bars about our place in the world today. Wale played an extensive set late into Monday night, performing many tracks off the new records alongside a career spanning set of fan favorites.
Wale’s show at Webster Hall was the first stop in NYC in two years since playing Brooklyn Steel back in January of 2019, prior to the pandemic. Wale followed up the Webster Hall date with a show in Boston on Tuesday, and the tour moves on to the Midwest starting this Friday.
