Wale‘s a headline name that typically provides us with a bit of reluctance when it comes to clicking, but when he announces a full-length studio treatment of (what at least this writer considers to be) his best work, we’re all ears (and eyes.) In a revealing and deeply contemplative trailer for his upcoming Album About Nothing, the DMV-native squashes rumors and hearsay in an attempt to clear his bill, tapping the talents of the legend Jerry Seinfeld for a studio session that’s more teased than anything, showing the two stars dapping one another up in the booth.
It provides a window into the preparatory efforts of what appears to be a new DC mic-slayer. We’ve been wondering what happened to the great redeemer of the go-go sound, whose live show was deemed a must see for anyone who still cherishes Trouble Funk and Chuck Brown‘s blistering bounce. But this is the new Wale we’re talking about here. Who knows what he’s even capable of at this point? Album About Nothing has yet to receive a proper release date, but it seems to be on the way nonetheless. Peep the trailer for Wale’s upcoming album with a quick cameo from the king of observational humor below.
