According to Wale, he’s in a good space. Gearing up for the release of his third studio album, The Gifted, it’s no secret that Wale most recently visited NYC’s sneaker mecca, Flight Club, to buy out the entire Air Jordan III (3) stock. To put things into perspective, here’s footage of Wale giving you exactly what many have been asking: “Why?”

While the Air Jordan III (3) stands as one of the most beloved silhouettes of all time, Wale reiterates his passion for kicks, his dedication to the people and those who support his music, plus hones in on the fact that he just wants to “ball out in his own way”. You know, like how Michael Jordan did when he jumped from the free-throw line in ’88. Not only that, but Wale’s teammate alludes to the possible Jordan Brand collaboration that we touched upon last week by stating that “we got the customs coming out, 88 pairs, super exclusive.” Did this guy just drop the ball on a Wale x Air Jordan custom release? Well…
