While everybody is ranting and raving about the new Beyonce album Wale is doing some ranting of his own…lol!! He didn’t make Complex Magazine’s “Top 50 Rap Albums list this year” and He WENT OFF. Check out the transcript and audio below:
Wale: So you think y’all being a responsible publication by continuously to f–king like, so all that petty s–t? At this point you know it’s got to be personal. I don’t want — you telling me it’s not personal, it’s like a bold face lie. To be omitted from every type of list that y’all do or be at the bottom of it or every type of way that y’all can omit me, y’all will. So I just need to know if anybody’s ready to keep it 100 with me and be like, ‘Yeah, it might be. You might have rubbed somebody wrong years ago in some way or fashion’ because I have had no interaction with the company in years. So, to be, every time, be omitted from everything that y’all do, it’s gotta be something. So, I’m trying to find out if you’re going to be the person that tells me that or you just gonna give me the song and dance.
Complex: Well, no, I’m not going to be the person that tells you that. It’s not a personal thing man. We sit –
Wale: *screaming* You mean to tell me Juicy J album is better than mine?! Is that what you trying to tell me? You mean to tell me everybody you put on that f–king list…boy don’t play me, man. I came at you civil right now but it could go completely in another direction right now. Respect me, dog. Respect me, dog. Respect the f–king culture right now, man, because right now it’s like some petty s–t going on right now, and I’m trying to get to the bottom of it in a civil manner, yo.
Complex: There’s no disrespect, man. I mean, straight up I really –
Wale: Man, f–k you, dog! You know it’s disrespect! Every f–king time, dog. I swear to God I’ll come to that office and start knocking n—as the f–k out. You want to see some ghetto ignorant s–t? That’s what y’all promote! That’s the only thing y’all promote from n—as is ghetto ignorant s–t. You want me to do that? ‘Cause right now it’s like you giving me the same song and dance like I’m a f–king idiot. You think I’m a f–king idiot? Is that what you trying to tell me?
Complex: No, man, not at all.
Wale: I think you think I’m a f–king idiot, dog. ‘Cause y’all always do this s–t. How the f–k you mean to tell me my album ain’t in the Top 50? That’s what you believe? Or if you saw me in the street would you be like, ‘Aw, dude, aw s–t. I think your s–t is great, man.’ Which one is it? ‘Cause if I see one of y’all, y’all gonna tell me that in my face.
Complex: Let me tell you something. When we make these lists we all get together. We have a big staff meeting and we debate the list for hours and we consider lots and lots of artists. More than 50 artists. Maybe a 100, maybe 200 artists –
Wale: Alright. Alright. I’ll see y’all n—as tomorrow. I’ll see y’all tomorrow. How about that? Get the security ready. *he hangs up*
*strong language, parental discretion is advised*
At this point in his career Wale doesn’t need to worry about the lists. Publicity like this doesn’t change anything. Just my opinion.
