Rapper Wale has been unveiled as the latest ambassador for audio brand Skullcandy.

The Pretty Girl star announced the news on Thursday (14Dec12) along with a pre-release of his latest track, Back to Ballin, on the Skullcandy website and a festive giveaway campaign called the 12 Days of Wale, which features online contests for fans.

He says, "I have been a fan of Skullcandy long before I officially joined the family... It's great to be a part of a brand that understands how to design products with today's music and style tastes in mind. Skullcandy is real, authentic lifestyle audio at its core"

Skullcandy representative Nate Morley adds, "We're really excited to welcome Wale to the family. Wale is an amazing artist, but he's also dialled into the sports world. He lives at the cross-section of music, sports and fashion - much like our brand does - and we couldn't think of a better addition to our family."
