Is it Malcolm X…No, it’s Wale X! This has got to be one of the dopest things that I’ve seen in a minute. Wale not only portrays the physical features of the late great Malcolm X on the June 18th cover of Unban Ink Magazine, but his versus mimic those of the 1960s activist. I love it! This photo shoot, speaks volumes! It’s just a stepping stone for an artist like Wale with ambitions. He’s taken on the character of one of his idols. Drop down bottom and check it out.
