    ^

    ……..UHHHH, MAYBE BECUZ HE’S WACK???

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Capricorn Religion

    I think because………….. Okay look, I think its because, he is “Kanye Cocky”, without having the “Kanye Classics”… Kanye has nothing to do with this but, I use him because, as far as attitude goes, that how he comes off..

    Now…..

    Is that a disrespect to Wale’s current Discography? No. I have all his shit an think they are very under rated projects. . . . . But, like I said earlier they are not Elite Classic material…..

    Example……

    1)Any Wale song vs “Can’t tell me nothing….

    2) Wale’s songs vs “Dead Presidents”

    3) “Ambition” Vs “Ready to Die”….

    ….. See what I mean? Now again, its not a shot at his music as of now but, people just feel like he needs to tone down a bit until he checks off one of the “Classic boxes”. SOME feel like he comes off as accomplished already without even having anything to put up againt the Classics. He is better than a high percentage of rappers out but, his attitude acts as if he is in the same league as the A-clss

  • Capricorn Religion

    Typo “A-Class”

  • JustMyOpinion

    @ Capricorn

    ^ thanks for the breakdown. I guess I can see where people are coming from. Plus, I think he feel as if “look, how much more do I need to prove to you that I’m nice?” You know.

  • Regular Guy

    gotta love wale

  • DC Native

    @Capricorn religion you are 100% correct! I have both albums too and some mixtapes but what you said is on point

  • JustMyOpinion

    Don’t waste your time watching this video. I just did. It’s not an interview they literally crack jokes for 20 minutes. Ohhhh how I like satellite radio SO better.

  • Capricorn Religion

    And….. Not to overdue it but….

    I realize he is part of the “New Era” of Hip-Hop so, he should only be judged by the current landscape but, that doesn’t matter to a certain extent. Rather it be this generation of Hip-Hop, the next, etc, etc, etc, they will still have to compete against:

    “Enter the 36 Chambers”,

    “Ready to Die”,

    “The Marshall Matters LP”

    “Reasonable Doubt”

    “Etc”

    Now, I say “To a certain extent” because, HE STILL has to compete with the New classics. Again:

    1) “Ambition” vs “Good kidd, maad city”

    2) “Attention Deficit” vs “Section 80″

    3) Ambition vs “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”

    4) Any Wale songs vs Drake’s songs

    Again, I like Wale alot but, how he comes off isn’t earned YET. I say yet because, I still feel he can drop his “Mainstream” Classic soon an hush a few people up

    But….

    He has to get there first

  • Capricorn Religion

    @JustMyOpinion

    “I think he feel as if “look, how much more do I need to prove to you that I’m nice?” You know.”

    EXACTLY….

    If Jay-Z and Eminem can’t get away with it then, c’mon now.

    Think about it….

    Yes, we hail “The Blueprint” and “The Marshall Matters LP” as GODS of Hip-Hop albums but, the question will ALWAYS be until they retire:

    “So? What’s up with that next project?”

    Hip-Hop, and now that I start to realize it, NBA too is always about “What’s next” until they retire.

    “Wow Kobe. 81 points, 5 champions, a bunch of MVP honors, etc. WOW…………. So, your going to get another Championship right?…. RIGHT? No? Oh well, guess you feel off then”…..

  • Rozay

    They said maybe he will bring out Adrien Dantly, Bill Laimbeer or Vinnie the microwave Johnson in Detroit, hahahahahahahah

  • the komet

    Hot 97 interviews are horrible.why does it take 4 people to do the interview. Does the PD really need to be thete? Cipha and k.foxx are useless and Rosenberg won’t let you get a word in. Why didn’t they do the interview in the studio where they can talk into the mic? It’s not a more casual interview because you do it on a couch just a bad one.
    S

  • Facts

    This album is a flop already

  • Set303

    Wale makes a good point on the wordplay issue.

  • CM PUNK

    Why is K Foxx even there? she don’t do anything smh…Angela Yee is waaaaaaaaaaaay better

  • StarFox64

    i wonder how many pple even bother watching the hot97 interview while the breakfast club is up there…

    @Facts co sign. Wale’s garbage been garbage. But besides fat boy hes MMGs selling point. French did 56k he’ll do 60-70k cause hes releasing his album while his singles buzzin.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    “This album is a flop already”…Wale aint even know it

  • Rozay

    What I don’t understand is why do people hate on someone when they are giving an interview, you can critcize a niggas music if it’s garbage, but if the dude is garbage and you don’t ike his music, why post when he only giving an interview, that’s sucka shit.

  • Nathaniel

    charlemagne was right. i don’t know what envy and wale were talking about. you don’t have to like all the subject matter, but

    kendrick lamar
    j. cole
    wale
    meek mill
    tyler, the creator
    big sean
    a$ap rocky
    rick ross
    jay z
    lupe fiasco
    kanye west
    drake
    lil wayne

    when you look at numbers, fanbase, influence, these are currently the most successful, and sought after rappers in the game. ALL of these niggas can rap. lyrically, they’re all formidable. you can barely name ANY era in rap music where it was THAT many solo artists selling as many singles and records, and selling out shows how these niggas are. merchandise. brand extension. and STILL formidable on the mic. he mentioned joel ortiz and royce as if there was ever a time where rappity rap niggas who write 50 bar verses with poor hooks (or no hooks) and really don’t even make good MUSIC, they’re just emcees, were the top money men in rap. that’s never happened. niggas stay talking about these eras that didn’t even happen the way they “remember” it.

    lowkey, what wale is really complaining about is the fact that when you look at that list… he’s probably the most overlooked out of all those guys, aside from tyler. AND if you’re always in the club, you’re gonna hear club records. trinidad, ace hood, khaled tracks, rocko, future, french. CLUB RECORDS. hip hop is in a very balanced space, and niggas are too blind to see it.

    and b.dot… niggas don’t account for macklemore’s fanbase. i never even hear him on urban radio–our stations, he may as well be the black eyed peas. so i didn’t mention him. i know he’s selling all kinds of crazy to white suburban people who don’t listen to what we do, or live the reality we live.

  • Nathaniel

    even new jacks like casey veggies, travis scott and rockie fresh, chance the rapper etc are unique talents. mad creative. what’s the problem? all that variety and niggas be mad that trinidad james got a hot single. shit don’t even matter. every time i turn on the fuckin radio, Bad is playing too for god sakes, lol.

  • LardASS

    wale acts like a chick aha
