Wale‘s pushing a brilliant idea that would help artists the second they put pen to paper on a new record deal … now he just needs record labels to step up.
The rapper hopped on “TMZ Live” Friday and talked about a noble and personal cause — getting record labels to do right by looking after the mental health of their artists as they rise and fall.
Wale’s committed … so much so he dropped his new studio album, “Wow … That’s Crazy” to bring awareness on #WorldMentalHealthDay. The rapper says with artists being under the microscope these days, every one of their moves — from bad days to breakups — are immediately magnified 100 times over.
Wale says artists generate so much revenue for record labels, it’s only right that companies find a way to help them maintain their sanity.
Wale, who has often been open about his struggle with depression, says he almost lost his sanity since his last project, but with the release of his new album that broaches his struggles … he says, “Tonight I release this balloon.”
