WALE x UCB x MTV = FTW

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

I have the worst trunk cleaning…I have stuff in there from many years ago ranging from old kicks, basketballs, samples, empty bottles of privilege(soo not a good look), and a whole lot of other random shit. I usually try and “organize” it every summer because that trunk space is much needed for the road trips.

Yesterday while cleaning it out, I saw an old gold CD from a session way back (4/07 scribbled in sharpie on the front.) Remember that day like it was yesterday, because me and Wale made the same ughhhhhhhhhk *pushaT* face when we heard the beat that thee big homie Aqua sent.

Sucks that Nike had to scrap the project, would have been ILL no doubt, especially with all the other greats that were lined up to be on it.

Well with B2TF dropping tomorrow, I thought it was the perfect time to let the masses hear this. In hopes that it would hold y’all off until tomorrow. Make sure to check Wale’s twitter out tomorrow at 6pm for the tape!

Until then….

ENJOY!

Wale Thanks the Fans

WHO: Wale, UCB, Colin Munroe, RealMangoJuice

WHEN: April, 2009

WHERE: The National at Richmond, VA

RECAP: These pictures have been sitting in RMJ’s archives for quite a while, but better late than never! Wale, Tre, and the rest of UCB rocked the house at the National. Richmond, VA showed the performers plenty of love. A crazy caucasian even decided to try and jump on stage and almost got kicked out of the show but Wale came to the rescue and told security to leave him be. Then the kid attempted to stage dive. Too bad nobody caught him.  All in all, a tremendous, energetic performance. A couple attendees at the concert even did paintings for Wale! The photographs will speak for themselves. Oh and by the way, these might not be up to par with Gabby’s photos but its the best we got when she is not around lol.

More footage after the jump.
