Wale has revealed he took drugs to boost his confidence especially when the media seem to forget all about his talent.

In a new interview with Billboard, the rapper admitted he takes pills to stay up in the studio and to help him get the 'right energy'.

"My confidence was shot, so I'd be taking whatever to keep me in a good mood, to get me in the right mood for an interview." Wale confessed

"I'm not going into the details as to what I was taking, but there's definitely something for that. Just like there's a fuckin' app for everything, there's a damn pill for everything. Or something you can pour in your glass," he added.

Wale also made mention to the fact that he is a depressed man who has no strong woman by his side to love him but his music.

"I was depressed not being where I wanna be in my career when I've put the work in. I wasn't sleeping. I was drinking all day and I didn't have anyone to go to. I couldn't fight it. Those are some of the demons I talk about on the album," he explained.

 His new album, The Album About Nothing, hits stores on Tuesday, March 31 and is inspired by Seinfeld.
