Wale - The Work

Here is the video for Wale's hit, "The Work", off his latest mixtape, "More About Nothing".

Man, that whole Cudi and Wale side story escalated quickly, didn't?

After rumblings the last year about the two not getting along,in addition to their Twitter "conversation", Wale addressed his side of the story on our previously featured track, Number Won.

Cudi WENT IN during his recent Complex feature:

Complex: …When you hit that fan at your show last December, Wale came out with a line about it ["Throwin' 'round wallets like the dude that Kid Cudi hit," from "Thank You Freestyle"].

Kid Cudi: It wasn’t a shot, it’s just a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass rapper. You can’t let that shit faze you. That’s one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack. Why would you even use that as a metaphor? Everybody think they Hov. Niggas ain’t got the magic like they think they do; there’s only a couple of wizards in this game. I’m a wizard and I know it....

Then people like Wale get mad that ‘Ye ain’t give him no beats—’Ye ain’t give you no beats because we ain’t fucking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t fuck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you. The shit is a service, it’s a quality of a certain standard. Niggas are just so thirsty it’s ridiculous. I’ve been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an asshole. These people don’t know my fucking life—now I’m going to give them something to talk about.

This is like Big vs Pac for the hipster community, lol. Keep it safe guys, lol.
