Something Here.

Wale might’ve given up on The Album About Nothing, but we didn’t. Despite his self loathing, The Album About Nothing was innovative and highlighted Wale’s meticulous. Take it from us, this was Gold, Ralph.

    another poor effort by Wale but he bitches his way into top 10s

  • PhilLee8

    Should be higher than 10, there’s definitely some animosity there, really good album.

  • I thought this album was tough. Dope production & Wale stayed true to his sound.

  • Dada!

  • Dada!

    He and Jerry told a story throughout the album that was dope especially if u follow the mixtapes .. Pretty good riding music .. Don’t have to skip a track.. The one time in Houston is classic

  • Jumpman

    This album was wack and boring.

    • Guest

      What have YOU done besides create a bunch of fake profiles with Young Thong as your avi? Absolutely nothing! Eat a dick you racist schizophrenic cunt! Take your meds! #PillsAreGood

  • Mo Betta

    The Matrimony is a hit…

    The White Shoes – my thoughts on this I have to compare to Kendrick.. it’s the same words damn near… we gonna be aight vs you’ll be alright… dead serious question.. WHAT MAKES THEM DIFFERENT?.. the song tempo?..wale encourage you vs kendrick saying he is in the struggle with you?… WE vs YOU?

    The Bloom.. that’s a feel good song there

    The Benz and The Need To Know are cool I just remember too vivdly the originals.. don’t know if that hurt or helped for me.

    The Glass Egg is just relatable… as The God Smile

    The Success.. is motivational, I love the background singing

    The commentary from Jerry I think enhanced the songs.. especially the intro to White Shoes

    overall I think it’s a great album…may not be the most TURNT UP but as a fan it’s what you should love .. an artist opening up and giving you some of themselves.. like Scarface’s – The Fix..

    • Dada!

      Perfect explanation

  • JamesTheNiggaHatingDolphin

    I liked this album, favorite from Wale so far.

  • el jim chapo guzman

    B Thot is back on that bull shit again.. This was a boring album

  • Tomas Anthony

    IMO theres like 12 -15 albums worthy being on a top 10 lists of 2015, this is one of them but no matter who doing the list someone getting left off bc there was alot of good music this year, this is one project i would have left off my top 10

  • Tomas Anthony

    DARK SKY PARADISE>>>>>>>>>>

  • prince cody

    I hear plenty of people speaking about this album, I listened to it about 4 to 5 times in different places and I just didn’t get it. the mixtape about nothing and more about nothing is better. this was his worse studio album yet but I thought Attention Deficit was good so I digress

    • Dashing28

      yup. And I’ve bought all his albums. This was the worst.

      Outside of the concept with Seinfeld it wouldn’t even be interesting

  • Captain Jack

    Dope production and I loved the Seinfeld snippets. I agree with this

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    Overproduced ! Too many layers ! Kanye emphasised this by stripping everything with the track he did for Wale with Ty- that said – I will always love Wale! This album was a great listen – my fav lyricist! Great wordplay and song isms 😉 we love you Wale !

    “highlighted wale’s meticulous.” Fam you’re tripping. You’re really playing yourself as a “journalist” when you try to use higher vocabulary word in an incorrect manner. Meticulous is an adjective. In this case, you used it as a noun which does not make sense at all. Sharpen your skills and master your own craft before you critique other works bro. You should be embarrassed.
