Wale Reacts To DMV Awards Brawl

Now you see, that’s why our people don’t have anything. Because we don’t know how to go in places and act properly. On Saturday, the 5th annual DMV Awards 2011, which honors the DMV’s musical talent was cut short after numerous fights erupted at the ceremony. After the chaos, Wale responded to the fuckery. Another clip below.

    crying shame…not surprised…it’s a crab in the barrell mentality…

  • Dolla

    This shit saddens me. The only way the DMV music scene will ever be able to get it’s self off the ground is if we UNITE and distance ourselves from this ignorance, GOONery, and buffoonery. This whole fiasco just set back the entire DMV to the stone age. Looking like a bunch of cavemen with fake jewelry on.

  • J.

    this y my city cant get no where, DMV=hatercity and no progress

  • lc3

    I bet you after all that drama those same folks were still stuck on stupid. It is a duty for artist to respect one another when it comes to this music. I know drama helps increase sales but it sends out the wrong messages to the youth. Black America needs to change ! Why do we have to kiss ass for our own blueprints. 1

  • Deez Nutz

    This is the most press outside of Wale that this raggedy azz artist has ever received.

  • Chi Town

    SMH!!! Half the mofuckas in there don’t even realize how fucked up this was.

    I almost went. Glad I didn’t.

  • Daquisha

    Everyone isn’t the same in the DMV I so happen to be a aspiring artist and songwriter and this is something I do not stand for, my music is inspiring.

    We really have to do better as a whole and it’s not going to happen over night it takes time but most of all, it takes dedication and belief.

    • Desmond Decker Aka Young D

      agreed we do need to do better to support our artists and give em standards as far as the art is concerned

  • Bobby Fresh

    Damn shame. people always wonder why we don’t have a big underground scene like ATL, Miami,Houston etc its because of ratchetness like this. Half the people fighting are mad they don’t have true talent to stand out so they resort to violence a basic instinct of ignorance.

  • MD2UPT

    Funny thing is there’s a video with Fat Trel (Wale’s artist on his Board of Administration label) in the middle of the brawl throwin a chair at niggas like its the WWF….lol

    But for real, its shit like this that holds the DMV back from the recognition it deserves….smh

    • Desmond Decker Aka Young D

      sadly

  • Peekay

    PATHETIC. They’re obviously not worth of an awards show.

  • Peekay

    *worthy

  • Jason

    REALIZE THIS….THE ONLY REASON THIS GOT COVERED ANYWAYS IS BECAUSE WALE TWEETED ABOUT IT. NOBODY GIVES A FUCK ABOUT DMV HIP HOP OTHER THEN WALE ANYWAYS. TRASH ASS WACK ASS STUFF MAN. PLEASE

  • NYC

    Another nigga moment!!! Must have just found out wale signed to MMG!!! Maybe not!! Take 1 step forward & 10 steps back… Dam shame.

  • YoYoYo

    @Jason son how da fuck you gonna diss a whole city, nobody gives a fuck about DMV hip-hop. Homie fuck you. DMV hip-hop is where the talent is. XO, PhilAde, IncWell, Logic, Pro’Verb, RA the MC, BLACK C.O.A.L., Jayy Tu-Wize.

    @Jason go kill yourself, cuz if you want to step up against any of these artists I mention I promise you might as well have killed yourself.

    DMV ALL DAY 24/7 7 DAYS A WEEK, 365 days a year, 366 on a leap year.

    YOU CAN HATE ME NOW!!!

  • Word

    Lmao

    Shout out to @Big Homie for that opening sentence.

    That shit was funny on RD when the bitch was all uptight and niggas told her ass to shut the fuck up. 22 2′s was prolly best display of Hovs lyrics I ever heard.

    And the only part of the D M V that matters is the M – for Maryland. And Baltimore within Maryland. Fuck DC or Virginia.

  • Ice Cold

    @word ^^^ Maryland all day

    This shit is sad

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! This comment had me in tears! Shout out to Dee Phunk!

    Wale says “we gotta do better” What, change your whole image and sign with Rick Ross who’s whole image is a fallacy?! SMH? Remember when Wale was hip hop? Don’t worry , I’ll wait.

    • Desmond Decker Aka Young D

      I hated the fact that Wale signed wit Rick Ross I’m disappointed in that factor but we do need to do better to support our artist that’s no lie. Wale do need to change his music back to when he first came out and stop sounding like these other southern rap niggas who suck tho I agree

  • John

    @colaradoknight
    I taught the same thing…I think he’s jus messin wit Ross to get his name to more people….because Ross is hot….but i hope wale do the 1 album and get away from them…because he’s too good 4 dat situation

  • Belize

    Yeah yeah yeah

  • gracesspirit

    No more sponsorship for DMV after this-not a good look at all!!!

  • boogie

    Yeah this is DMV life for real.People actin ignorant +black on black violence. Thats why I moved to Atlanta, and Wale be here every other week too. Too much drama in the DMV.

  • http://twitter.com/AEMeezy AEMeezy

    Yo… did ya’ll see old ass YN at the end? The last 30 seconds (4:15-4:45) is him going on a rant. Shouts to YN, that’s cool to make an appearance at the lesser known award shows.

  • http://twitter.com/AEMeezy AEMeezy

    The DMV awards… HA…

    What is even more comical is what Wale said… DMV hip-hop hasn’t grown since the Clipse took it over back in the early 2000s. Wale missed the hype by about 100 feet. Let’s not say J.Cole is DMV either. He is from NC and went to school in NY. *shouts to St. Johns* He said ‘major steps’ HA.

    He went from Mark Ronson to Jay-Z to Ross? I don’t know…something seems wrong. Attention: Deficit… more like Attention: You Missed It

  • Midwest

    At first I thought to myself, “Why does the Department of Motor Vehicles have an awards show?” My DMV don’t look nothing like that. Google to the rescue. To be honest, I’d never heard the term DMV to describe that area before. Bad look if this is how I hear about it.

  • mack

    It’s jacked up that this years DMV awards can only get this type of recognition, press coverage over some niggas fighting? yeah it’s messed up! i live in Maryland and it’s messed up that the sacrifices that these artists have made is gonna be trivialized because of this meaningless aggression that took place.

    The comments this nigga Wale made is laughable. This is the same dude that was on 92Q screaming like a pissed off bitch at the radio deejays, right? The same dude that be having hissy fits when cats from his own town don’t give him love? He talkin about DMV gotta do better? Yeah coming from this nigga that hops from one camp to a next camp to the next camp like he’s fucking Frogger? yeah eat a cold dick coated with a yeast infection ol fake ass nigga!

    • Desmond Decker Aka Young D

      I appreciate wale tryna put the dc area on but as far as him hopping it may be that we aint supporting him have u guys thought of that instead but again we from an area of crabs smh

  • slowbot

    @aemeezy

    you sound stupid…he was with ronson while he was with interscope…ronsons label allido had a joint venture with interscope…jayz label rocnation only managed him and still does

  • Brandon

    Thugs. Gain some class.

  • Donn

    *Pops head in*

    Sounds about right…

  • LANGSTON LANE

    THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE THERE ARE NOT FROM DC. MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA BAMA’S STARTED THIS BRAWL. DC WOULDA SHOT FIRST. WALE COMMENTING IS IRRELEVANT BECAUSE HE WAS NOT THERE AND FURTHER MORE IS FROM PG COUNTY MARYLAND. I WISH MARYLAND CATS WOULD JUST OWN UP TO BEING FROM MARYLAND AND STOP TRYING TO ACT LIKE WE ARE ONE. DC is DC. MARYLAND is MARYLAND. VIRGINIA IS….(no one cares)….

    DMV is something Wale came up with to brand himself as so noone would question where he is originally from. In fact Wales boy “SNEAKER MAN DAN” Came up with the term when they were working at PG County Mall (Downtown Lockerroom)… The truth will come to light..DC not DMV!!!!!

  • MD2UPT

    langston lame….you are a straight clown for those comments..you represent the type of people that started that bamma ass fight…
    dc maryland va is filled with haters, the whole area is the ultimate barrel and you are one of the many crabs…
    i dont even rock with wale like that but i respect the fact that he tries to put on for the area….even though he is a bird.

    and btw, wale and sneaker man dan did not come up with the term DMV, so I dont know where you heard that from
    get your facts straight and stop talking that bullshit
    if the DMV doesn’t unite then we will never get recognized like ATL, LA, NYC…

    • Desmond Decker Aka Young D

      yo MD2UPT I couldn’t agree more wit u when U said that. As U should know this nigga Langston Lame obviously doesn’t understand the history behind the DMV as far as how it was formed nor takes the fucking time to read or research it lol He’s a crab in a bucket and is the king of them.

      But yea as for wale I’ve always appreciated wale putting on the dc area for the longest after nonchalant. I just wish he didn’t deal wit rick ross tho but I hope wale keeps doing what he’s doing and he is right that behavior at the awards was stupid and sad. It is time for the dc area to unite for real

  • YoYoYo

    This is the best DMV artist out right now up and coming JAYY TU-WIZE

  • big youngin

    its shame that we dc cats don’t want to roll wit MD or VA you stupid to think that this little dot on the map is gonna have a music scene without the other two letters MV. for one if you from the city you know that all terraces have been shut down years ago half of SE and NE have been turned over to white or should i say upper middle class. so the numbers are even less of so called real N!ggas livin in the city. i work the boards in a studio and half the cats that rap are soft but they roll with a few goons. i love GA ave i went to roosevelt i did my little dirt around garfield s/o to lola but lets get it together how can the whole south get together to go against all of hip hop and we cant get this little city to do it. LEARN. the south been runnin hip hop for at least 10 years they so good they made it cool for to make bubble gum pop rap. and we still here hatin on the only person to make it.

  • Tbax

    i love the DMV area. but its funny to see all these people tryna bash VA. last time i checked VA produced (missy elliot, trey songz, chris brown, clipse, pharrell, timbaland)..so come on now lets not be ignorant..no disrespect to MD or DC at all cuz they go hard too, but forreal lets stop summarizing an area when u dont know shit about it. real talk.

    shout out FAT TREL..hommie is raw

  • train2Go

    Last time I checked DMV was next region up

    Noah-O “I got it” goin hard for VA too
