Wale Addresses J. Cole Feud & Confronts DJ Akademiks on ‘Everyday Struggle’


This morning, Wale made his long-awaited return to Complex offices and made a visit to their weekly morning series, Everyday Struggle. During the trip, he touched on his new SHINE album and why he didn’t receive support from media publications – and not putting blame on his major label.

Throughout the hour conversation, he also grilled DJ Akademiks on his recent career criticism – as Joe Budden let them air out their issues. He also soon broke down his mini-battle with J. Cole, where the two had a phone call the night before he released False Prophets.”
