Wale, a Nigerian American, who rose to prominence in 2006, when his song "Dig Dug (Shake It)" became popular in his hometown. Wale became locally recognized and continued recording music for the regional audience. On November 10, 2009 Wale's debut album, Attention Deficit, had primarily positive reception. It debuted at the number 21 spot on the Billboard 200 and sold 28,000 copies in its first week

Wale found representation in Daniel Weisman, a former club DJ and promoter who had no previous experience in management. Weisman had been tipped off about the rapper by a friend in Washington, D. C and connected with him through Myspace.On February 5, 2011, during Super Bowl XLV festivities he announced his signing to artist Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group. He also included that he would continue to put effort in music he believes in. 

The Christmas Eve release of the "Folarin" mixtape begins with a very presumptuous opening. This tape accomplishes the goal of slamming on radio stations and clubs. "Folarin" seeks to bring Wale's name back to the forefront after what has been a quiet year for the lead.

 Folarin's 21-track mixtape has features from Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Trinidad James, French Montana, Chrisette Michele, Scarface, Jhen√© Aiko, and Lightshow.
