Loudoun County, Va. (May 2, 2015) – The Washington Redskins announced that Washington, D.C. native and Grammy-nominated, international rap superstar Wale will both attend & perform at the Redskins’ annual Draft Day Party presented by Geico at FedExField on Saturday, May 2.

Wale, whose new album, “THE ALBUM ABOUT NOTHING,” debuted at #1 on the charts, will add to an already festive event. This marks the first time the Draft Day Party has featured a musical guest.
“Having grown up in D.C., Since I’m constantly on the road, I have a chain with a large gold Redskins logo pendant, so it’s always close to me wherever I am. I’m truly honored & excited to be a part of Draft Day. Huge thank you to Daniel Snyder & the entire Redskins organization,” says Wale.
