The former rap industry attorney, media executive, author, and Internet radio talk-show personality now hosts The Combat Jack Show, where hip-hop's biggest names are put on the front line. The questions will be tough—and shots will be fired. Co-hosted by Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, and Just Blaze, The Combat Jack Show appears every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday on Complex TV.
In this episode of The Combat Jack Show Wale shares some anecdotes from his past that have shaped who and where he is today. The Washington, D.C. native talks about his years as a teen and how he came up before the rap game. "I grew up in suburban Maryland, but it was the bottom of suburban Maryland," he says. "I went to school with fifty/fifty white boys, and then I went to detention center from sixth grade to twelfth. I'm like the perfect blend. I can tell all the stories, and it's believable. Because it's my life."
He shares a story of how he got into a fight with a history teacher in eleventh grade. According to Wale, the altercation stemmed from the verbal harassment that he and other students took from teachers on a daily basis. One day, he finally had enough. Wale ended up with a 60-day suspension and getting thrown off his high schools basketball team for his actions.
Watch the full clip above, where Wale also talks about his love for sports and Seinfeld. He recently released his third studio album, The Gifted, which features Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, and many more.
