Listen to Wale on iHeartRadio

Rapper Wale is retracing his roots for an upcoming special on Diddy's Revolt TV. 

Titled "Wale: I Am From," Revolt's first documentary follows the Maybach Music Group star as he makes his first trip to the African nation of Nigeria, where both of his parents were born. 

During the trek, Wale meets with family members for the first time and reflects on his connection to the country.  He also finds that he has a huge Nigerian following and is inundated with interviews. 

Executive Producer Rahman Dukes says "fans will see an intimate look" into Wale's emotions in the film. 

"Wale: I Am From" debuts on Monday, January 20th at 10:00 p.m. Eastern, followed by a live Ustream with the rapper at 11:00 p.m. Eastern.
