Wale and UCB set to be this year MTV VMA’s, house band. Great look for the DMV! Lets goo! October 20th is right around the corner, we gotta show the world what we made of!

XXL Freshman alum Wale and his go-go band UCB have been confirmed as the house band for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards next month, reports the Associated Press.

Wale will be joining Jay-Z, Beyonce, Green Day, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga. He will also be following in his Allido label head Mark Ronson’s shoes. Ronson served as the 2007 VMA band leader.

Wale is currently prepping his major label debut. The disc, titled Attention: Deficit, is set to hit shelves on October 20. Along with Ronson, the Washington, D.C. native has recruited a long list of heavyweights to provide the CD’s soundscape, including Sean C and LV, Dave Sitek of indie group TV on the Radio and Cool & Dre, who are responsible for Wale’s single “Chillin’” with Lady Gaga. Bun B, K’Naan, Marsha Ambrosius and Jazmine Sullivan were also drafted to share mic time with Wale.

The MTV VMAs will air live at 9 p.m. on September 13
