Thanks to hits like “Lotus Flower Bomb” hard working, critically acclaimed Rapper Wale broke through in 2011 a big way thanks in part to signing with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. Serving as a fresh stand out on one of the biggest brands in Hip Hop today, he was able to push his second album Ambition through to the mainstream, and reportedly sell 500,000 copies as of August. Now he plans to step his game up to Hollywood A list level by doing a whole lot of “Nothing”.
The word is out that for his next album he’s doing a super secret project with none other than comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld. Little more is out about the related album’s specifics, but we do know that the album’s title is “The Album About Nothing”. That’s pretty fitting considering the fact that Seinfeld’s classic sitcom was always affectionately coined, “the show about nothing.”
Oh yeah, If you don’t believe us, we understand. It was hard for us to believe too. Then we saw a recently released web video of Seinfeld himself in a Philly recording studio doing a webisode about it with Wale, and DJ Omega. It was a total trip to see and we insist you see it as well. As of now The Album About Nothing currently has a 2013 release date. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more!
