Following his appearance on The Breakfast Club earlier this week, Wale took to social media to reveal yet another project, aside from his upcoming album Shine. And though this one isn't music-related, it's sure to get folks hyped.

Last summer, the rapper teamed up with ASICS to collaborate on a pair of sneakers dubbed the "Bottle Rocket" Gel Lyte III's. Now, the two are back at it again with a new colorway; this time, a metallic gold, with hints of black and blue.

Wale shared a photo of the sneakers on Twitter with the caption "Intercontinental .. I think I'm Curt Hennig," and then again on Snapchat with the teaser: "IC title pending."

So it came as no surprise when he confirmed via another platform, Instagram, that the new color scheme was modeled after the WWE's most prestigious of belts, the Intercontinental Championship. He wrote on the photo-sharing site: "Always somethin I admired bout the IC title ... So I put my inspiration on feet."

As of now, no release date has been set.
