Local news: Wale releases new mixtape, "More About Nothing"
By David Malitz
“Attention: Deficit” wasn’t the gigantic hit that DMV rapper Wale hoped it would be and on the first song of his new mixtape he offers multiple explanations as to why: people simply aren’t acknowledging his greatness, the album was undershipped, the label picked the wrong single - one he didn’t even choose.
So on the brand new “More About Nothing” he gets back to basics - straightforward rapping and, uh, “Seinfeld” samples. The new mixtape is a sequel to Wale’s most-beloved piece of work, 2008’s “Mixtape About Nothing,” which established him as an online favorite and seemed to set him up for a national breakthrough. We’ve spent most of the afternoon navigating Wale’s dozens upon dozens of tweets trying to find a download link that actually worked, but are digging into the 21 tracks and will have more thoughts on it tomorrow.
