Local news: Wale releases new mixtape, "More About Nothing"

waleKramer, George, Elaine, Jerry and, uh, that's not Newman, is it?

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.

For now you can download “More About Nothing” at RapRadar.com and if you want a hard copy, Wale will be at D.C. clothing store Commonwealth giving away “the only 300 copies” tonight at 7 p.m.
