Would you rather listen to Wale and Jerry Seinfeld or Open Mike Eagle and Hannibal Buress? The choice is yours.
Harold Stallworth ain’t the one for the dibbin’ and dabbin’. The U Street Corridor is probably the most party-driven stretch of Wale’s adopted hometown of Washington D.C. It’s a vibrant hub for nightlife, ripe with craft beer and musicianship, hookah and second childhood. Transplants adore the yuppified bar-hop scene; natives roll their eyes in disgust […]
Brad Beatson challenges Wale to a paint-off. Oh sweet, sad, hapless, bowflexing Wale. You’ve truly reached peak Savasana with this one. For those of you off of the Rap Internet, Wale delivered an Oberst-esque message to MMG cohort Meek Mill yesterday, via Instagram. He even went as far as to claim he may be bipolar, […]
Jonah Bromwich is personally invested. That Wale has sold out is indisputable. He was a prime example of the first wave of blog rappers (Kid Cudi, J. Cole, B.O.B. etc). and one of the first post-Kanye artists to figure out what to talk about now that any topic was acceptable. He put out two excellent […]
Deen remains trippy. For those of you who’ve been paying attention, you’re aware that I’ve probably been listening to all things Freddie Gibbs. After all, he dropped 2 singles and a video in the last week or so. Oh and he decided to drop his album 3 weeks early once it leaked. But a few […]

An Open Letter To Wale June 6, 2013
Slava P wrote this in lieu of herbal therapy. Hello Wale, are you there? It’s me, Slava. You might not remember me, but I remember you. We were first introduced in 2007 when I downloaded your mixtape, 100 Miles & Running off the strength of your Justice collaboration. I appreciated your punchy delivery and cheeky […]
Slava P briefly dated the Maybach Music Girl. For a team that fairly recent started gaining traction, Maybach Music Group has already accrued a fairly popular, if polarizing, roster. There’s the tilapia-loving bawse, Rick Ross; the misguided Midwest transplant, Stalley; the one-man-twerk-machine, Omarion; Meek ‘No Indoor Voice’ Mill; and their newest signee, Rockie Fresh, who […]
Has any song in recent memory been more than the sum of its parts than “Rack City?” Tyga’s best case scenario is Mase and since Young Money already has its Mase in Drake, that would make Tyga the new Loon. But before he becomes a Islamic Fundamentalist, we will always have his chimerical myth about […]

The Empty Ambitions of Wale November 2, 2011
Jonah Bromwich stays repping the DMV. Poor Wale. He has so many subjects to discuss. We knew this early on, and so did he. That’s why he made The Mixtape About Nothing, on which he briefly chewed on a variety of topics to the rousing applause of the blogosphere. And with his new album Ambition, […]

Evan Nabavian does not believe that Lil Twist is the Shyheim of Young Money. Boss that he is, Rick Ross knew when assembling his team of future bosses that Maybach Music Group needed a lady boss for massive crossover boss appeal. Murder Inc. had Ashanti, G-Unit had Olivia, and even Game had a hook-singing sweetheart […]
