WALE – W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E and mixtapes


Washington DC’s Wale has been causing a stir with his mixtapes of late and this video seals the deal. A freestyle over Justice’s D.A.N.C.E turns into a multimedia homage to Seinfeld, Star Wars, Gnarls Barkley using the original video as a stylistic jumping off point.

In fact his new mixtape The Mixtape About Nothing has a distinctly Seinfeld theme from the cover art to the samples to the rap thematics. If you are looking for a reference for his voice, it reminds me of Lupe Fiasco. It features production from Mark Ronson and appearances from Clipse’s Pusha T, The Roots, Bun B and Lil Wayne. You can listen and download here.
