What were your thoughts on More About Nothing? Worthy sequel or ruined namesake? Regardless, the public opinon still rings that Wale intentional inaneness still resonates amongst the people.
Next chore: transporting that same energy into album making.
Download — Wale – More About Nothing
hes talking about Cudi in verse 1?
Both are incredible pieces of work for me. The fact that he’s ‘been through some things’ has made it a more than worth sequel
It’s almost like D’Evils part 2. I just realized that verse was about CuDI. But then again I’ve mostly been bumpin “The Trip (Downtown).”
shit is nice.i dont thnk its bettr thn da 1st jawn.been knockn both all day at cpr class…..so whers da competition?is it placin 1 against da othr?…..wow im slow.did not realize tht was part of da title.!pow myslf
“The fact that he’s ‘been through some things’ has made it a more than worth sequel.”
But it’s called “More about NOTHING”. Wouldn’t that make it something? :( lol
Is wale talking about Kid Cudi or Charles Hamilton?
I get the concept of the song, but why does Wale think he is any competition for the number one spot?
List your top 25 lyrical rappers and I bet Wale is not on the list.

TSS takes yet another potshot at Attention Deficit.. I swear someone paid y’all to dislike that album lol.
@thastrings as a PG County Native (PG Chillin!) who’s been on Wale since Dig Dug in 06, I was highly disappointed in AD. Not focused at all and unneeded features (Lady Gaga). We all know Wale could’ve done better and this proves it. I know he’ll be a lot sharper and focused come next album.
Nice list except drop Tyga, Wale and diggy simmons. I like tyga’s flow but I haven’t heard a lyric from him yet. Forget an awesome lyric I haven’t heard Tyga rhythm. Diggy has decent ghost writers. I don’t buy his hype or lyrical ability. I am not a Wale hater I purchased attention deficit and actually liked it. But dude is not that great of a lyricist.
My list of the top 25 lyricist:
2. immortal Technique
3. Andre 3000
4. Royce da 5’9
5. Joell Ortiz
6. Crooked I
7. Joe Budden
8. Lupe Fiasco
9. Jay Electronica
10. Mixtape Lil Wayne
12. Charles Hamilton
13. Mixtape CurrenSy
15. XV (no pun intended)
16. Meek Millz
17. Freddie Gibbs
18. BIG Sean
19. Album Lil Wayne
20. Mixtape CurrenSy
21. Asher Roth
23. Pre Flight School Wiz Khalifa
24. Big Boi
25. TI (when I’m drunk)
@ schamused i feel where u comin from nd thx for the props on my list. i jus think yu should give tyga & diggy a chance. i kno how much TSS blasted tyga’s debut effort (yes i actually bought it) but it wasnt tht bad…tyga has greatly improved with the wordplay nd the lyricism
kinda old but still it shows how he has improved.
idk but i like this kid. i’ve downloaded probably more than half of his discography so far. even if he has sumbody ghostwritin his lyrics (i really doubt it) hes doin a pretty dam good job. i mean he’s only 14, 15. you want him 2 spit like raekwon & talib kweli? lol. c’mon man..
probably the most criticed up-coming rapper since drake. Wale has lyricism, wordplay, but at times lacks in flow, which is bitin him in the ass, mainstream wise.
“yeah you got a lot of whips, but i got “a lot”.”
“you could never reggie bush me if you’ve been ray-j’d”
“you ask me who im stroking now i said that the pool is closed”
“Capital im raising like im through punctuating
Or shift keys or it I placement cause
Shift the keys get your capital raised up”
that was just a few examples but im tellin you, wale is a great lyricist. i mean the guy prides himself in that. may not mean anything but still. lol…and also you cant front nobody has anything on him with the sports refrences. lol.
i have to admit a couple things.
1. im surprised you have em at number 1. dnt get me wrong im a huge em fan even tho i miss 95-99 em…to say he’s still the best lyricist in the game? idk…his last 2 albums were good, but idk bout tht..
2. you have mixtape currensy twice. lol
3. i have a grudge againt present wiz khalifa becuz that man used to be a problem. show & prove, prince of city & prince of the city 2 showed that this dude was gonna be a problem..but what happened is he found a certain niche and tht niche was tht certain fans loved when he spit about weed, hoes & livin the good life soo…….kush & oj, burn after rolling & flight school are the results.. *kanye shrug*
the whole tape is dope to me
Wale’s mixtape was one of the most creative for the summer of 2010. Great production and great concept. I liked it better than attention deficit
