Wale Sparks Concern After Saying He’s ‘Been Extremely Sick’ + Announces Social Media Hiatus: I’ll Be Back Strong

Wale announced he has been under the weather for the past few days, and he’s taking a break to focus on recovering.

Yesterday (Wednesday, July 7th), Wale took to his Instagram Story to open up to fans about his situation. He wrote:

“I am out of commission. I been extremely sick since Saturday I’ve missed many calls and texts.. Thank you to everybody who called wit genuine concern. I ain’t sure how long I’ll be down but this s**t ain’t slight… Soon as I can come back strong I’ll be back strong. As for now management will run my socials much love see y’all soon -Wale.”

The rapper and songwriter did not further elaborate on the details of his condition.

Wale‘s latest announcement comes about two weeks following his reveal of an upcoming project–and a bold proclamation. On June 22nd, Wale tweeted that he would release his Folarin 2 compilation this summer. However, he also gave himself his flowers and claimed he’s “one of the greatest of all time.” He tweeted:

“I understand you may feel how you feel for whatever soembody [sic] told you… but I just wanna reiterate that I’m one of the greatest of all time. Catalog. Consistency. Influence. Longevity. DMV. With that aid #Folarin2 this summer.”

It’s unclear if Wale being “out of commission” will have an impact on the summertime release of Folarin 2. However, it sounds like he’s taking his recovery seriously by focusing on himself and his health!

Prayers up for Wale’s recovery!
