Wale Breaks Down More About Nothing

A few weeks ago, we premiered Ralph Folarin’s More About Nothing mixtape. Over more than 100k downloads later, he explains to 1515 his experience recording the project and notes a couple of his favorite tracks.

“The MC.” “You have to listen to this record. It’s not because I feel it’s the strongest song, but my whole brand is about fly stuff. Women, clothes, hip-hop culture. Everybody from Diddy to Jay — I hate to name-drop — they talk about the show. ‘Have you seen the show? Wale’s live show?’ One day I was in Diddy’s crib and he said, ‘The song is cool, but everybody talks about the live show.’ So I got in the studio and said, how can I make the song feel like a live show? So that’s how ‘The MC’ was created. It defines me. A lot of energy, spittin’. We’re gonna use that song for a lot of years to come.”

“The Friends ‘n’ Strangers.” “Friends are like seasons a little bit,” Wale explains. “It’s kinda talking about a personal relationship I had with one of my friends in the industry. And a relationship I had about two or three years ago with a lady I was kinda real close to. I was feeling pressure to be in a serious relationship when I just needed that moral support.”

  • QuantumMusik

    I loved the Mixtape, I just think a lot of his punchlines and etc. were WAY to hard to understand for the normal listener, kinda like how MF DOOM spits some crazy shit, yet you can’t comprehend what the actually song is about unless he tells you personally.

  • Citylivin’

    if only niggas started making their albums like Wale made this mixtape….with no pause breaks just straight flowing…..that would be tight.
