Maybach Music rapper Wale is gearing up for his third album, The Gifted, to be released later this month and the tracklist has finally hit the net.

Featuring label mates Meek Mill and Rick Ross and other hip-hop heavyweights, one musical guest in particular sticks out like a sore thumb.

This may be news to the casual fan, but for those who’ve been following Wale’s career prior to his mainstream success, it’s a known fact he’s loves comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his seminal 90’s sitcom, Seinfeld.

The “Lotus Flower Bomb” emcee has named two of his past mix tapes in honor of the show. However, the D.C. rapper was unaware until recently that Seinfeld was a fan of his as well.

“He said his wife is a big fan,” Wale told MTV. “If the queen’s happy, the man’s happy, and the man’s happy, the land’s happy, so I’ll take it like that.”

With Seinfeld officially on board, Wale fans finally get to hear the Ambition rapper’s dream come true.
