Wale’s highly anticipated The Album About Nothing hit store shelves & iTunes yesterday for its official release. Of course when anything relevant occurs in the wonderful world of Hip-Hop, Power 105.3’s “The Breakfast Club” are one of the first to get their hands on the scoop. Wale surprised the crew by walking in with a WWE championship belt that clearly displayed the win he just acquired upon his album release & got right down to business.
On his album release date, The DC emcee took to Twitter to invite all of his fans, aka the #Moonz, to come out to SOB’s in NYC for a surprise show. He touched on how things like this involve much risk, but ends up coming together. After explaining his passion for wrestling (in correlation to the championship belt he was sporting) & touching on Snoop Dogg getting down with Monday night RAW recently, he jumps into the relevancy of the skits on his album. Those who are familiar with the “About Nothing” series, know that Jerry Seinfeld plays a very prominent role in the creativity embedded into the project. Wale goes deep into his intentions behind using Jerry’s voice on the skits & the entire creative process behind the album.
Charlamagne Tha God brings up the conversation that Wale’s name always ends up getting attached to, his being underrated & not getting the respect he deserves as a Hip-Hop musician. We also get into the previous dilemma with him & Meek Mill & how that is now cleared up because sometimes family simply go through things. The conversation visits many topics as Wale is of the new age of intellectual artists with great dialouge. Check out the interview above.
