Grammy-nominated rapper Wale is one of the most idiosyncratic talents in hip-hop. The Washington, D.C. native began unleashing his distinct mixtapes in 2005, with his debut album, “ATTENTION DEFECIT,” arriving in 2009. After signing with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group imprint in 2011, he released his breakthrough sophomore album, “AMBITION” — which spawned the Grammy-nominated hit single “Lotus Flower Bomb (feat. Miguel)” — followed by 2013’s “THE GIFTED,” which debuted atop Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart. Wale released his highlyanticipated fourth studio album, “THE ALBUM ABOUT NOTHING,” on March 31, 2015, which is his most eclectic, entertaining and personal album to date, and features the hit single “The Matrimony (feat. Usher).”
The album sees Wale continuing his famed “About Nothing” mixtape trilogy, inspired by his favorite TV show, Seinfeld — a relationship that has since blossomed into a real life friendship between Wale and Jerry Seinfeld himself. The legendary comedian is prominently featured on “THE ALBUM ABOUT NOTHING,” serving as the album’s conscience, according to Wale. In addition to being one of the most prominent figures in music today, Wale has become a thriving entrepreneur. He serves as the CEO of hat & accessory line, WRKNG TITLE, as well as also recently being named creative ambassador for the NBA’s, Washington Wizards.
