A story is making its rounds on social media and blogs today, showing what appears to be a DM from Wale to a fan, agreeing to quit making music if the fan secured 10k RT’s. The interaction seemed a bit funny, as Wale would have to have been following the random fan to even exchange DM’s, as well as the fact that Wale allegedly wrote, “b*tches love me”…which doesn’t sound very Wale’ish at all.

After we shared the story, the MMG rapper himself reached out to Funk Flex, and confirmed that the alleged DM is a Photoshopped image, and he will not be quitting rap any time soon. Even if the DM was real, it would be silly for someone as successful as Wale to quit rap! So, there you have it – this rumor is FALSE and we can expect more music from the D.C. native for quite some time to come!
