Wale drew a lotta people's ire when he spazzed out on Complex this weekend for not including him in their top 50 albums of the year. His "Kanye moment" as people have called it, came off the wrong way to many. So, he took to Peter Rosenberg, Ebro, and Hot97 today to explain why he feels Complex holds a personal grudge against him. Watch and hear Wale speak on it after a weekend to see the dust settle above.
Last night's all-new SNL contained a little hip hop. Nope, not from musical guest Kings of Leon, but from cast member and hilarious comedian Jay Pharoah and a feature from Wale in this holiday H&M rap song above. They spoof the sale prices they've had this holiday season, which doubles as a reminder for me to go there before Christmas and pick up some new clothes. Another underrated part of this: guest host John Goodman's cameo at the end. For Wale, this type of blog post is > the other type of blog post he got on Friday.
Here is a hotly talked about topic today (that's still a blip compared to the Beyonce takeover), but it's Wale making the news for the wrong reasons. He threatens Complex in an escalating rant over the phone with one of their editors saying his exclusion in album of the year lists amongst other things is a personal beef that Complex has with him. The full call and details can be read on Complex. He also name dropped Juicy J in one of the main quotables:
“You mean to tell me Juicy J album better than mine?” he said, his voice rising. “Is that what you trying to tell me?”
Since this was released, Twitter has attacked Wale pretty harshly for getting so riled up. Plus, is Complex right for recording and releasing the call? What do you guys think of this situation?
UPDATE: Wale is going into the Complex offices today, cooled off from the call and making light of it in this Instagram video below.
It's an MMG affair for the "No Games RMX" with Future doing a new hook as well. Produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, and presumably off Rozay's upcoming Mastermind that is still slated for a Dec. 17 release (but at this point, another push back?)
Anyway, it's clear that Rozay & Co. are playing no games with this one!
