“I got something coming. Soon.”

In a saturated landscape of celebrity hip-hop sneakerheads, Wale is on a tier far above the rest. Long before he became one of the stars of MMG, Wale was praised for his thorough sneaker stash and his apparent connection with some Nike folks as he wore several upcoming Nikes and Jordans long before a release (he’s a sample size 9, which helps). So while a Wale sneaker may not reach the levels of demand of an Air Yeezy, the DC-based rapper is one of a select few that would be able to pull off a sound sneaker concept that the public would be intrigued by because his own tastes in kicks hasn’t failed this far. What’s more is that Wale was featured in an official Jordan Brand look-book in 2010, so it’s clear that the Brand is open to working with the respected artist.

In this interesting find courtesy of TSG, Wale hints at a potential Jordan Brand connection in the future, spilling the beans as he was talking about his infamous Air Jordan III Retro ’88 mass-purchase not long ago and the AJ3 flyers that were made to promote his third album. Although the AJ3s he gave his inner circle were all purchased and customized on his own, he gives a “shout-out to Jordan Brand”, which may signify something a bit more official. Will we see a limited edition or Hyperstrike release of an Air Jordan Retro? Nothing’s confirmed at the moment, but Wale says something is in the works, so check out the video below (start at around the 10:00 minute mark) and give us your guesses as to what this potential Wale x Jordan Brand collaboration may entail.

Why is JB giving this clown any recognition? They are really watering down the brand now.
