The Mixtape About Nothing

Wale 2008


The fast-rising D.C. MC known as Wale showcases his mic skills over 18 inspired tracks on his Seinfeld-themed mixtape. Wale kicks things off doing his best Jerry-as-rapper shtick over the familiar slap-bass theme song--posing such thought-provoking questions as “What’s the deal with these ringtones?” From there, THE MIXTAPE ABOUT NOTHING blends Wale guest appearances (alongside the Roots) and freestyles (over Jay-Z’s “Roc Boys”) with a number of concept songs loosely based on dialogues from the sitcom. On “The Kramer,” Wale bookends a discussion of the volatile nature of the N-word in a rap music context with samples of Michael Richards’s infamous comedy club freakout (and his unsmiling apology). Throughout the second half, Wale’s attention focuses in on various music-industry pitfalls on tracks like “The Artistic Integrity” and “The Hype,” respitting Method Man’s first radio hit on “The Remake of a Remake,” and reserving space for a highly touted Lil Wayne guest-spot on “The Cliché Lil Wayne Guest Feature.”
