Wale Confronts Sports Announcer on TV Over On Air-Comments

(AllHipHop News) The 15-37 Washington Wizards were not only over-matched by the Toronto Raptors last night(Feb. 20th) 96-88 but overshadowed by an even more enticing battle. Toronto Raptors commentator Matt Devlin and the sports fanatic MC that is Wale had a cold war of words after Devlin questioned on-air Wale’s relevancy and stating the obvious “he’s not Drake.”

A simple misinterpretation of a friendly exchange as “heckling,” a few shots at a rapper’s ego and the man Devlin refered to as “Wall A” was enough for Wale to confront the detractor:

Following the game, Rudy Gay took to his personal Twitter account to reassure people him and Wale were having a jovial exchange between friends.

Wale also took to his personal Twitter account, however his was during the game and sent a warning to Devlin’s twitter account(which ironically is @MattDevlinRaps):

@mattdevlinraps watch ur mouth

This incident is more of an anomaly for a rapper who has fervently showcased his love for sports. Recently Wale teamed up with his label boss Rick Ross and Rozay’s manager ​Alex “Gucci Pucci” Bethune to start a sports management company. Also, Wale and labelmate Stalley recorded the theme song for ESPN’s popular debate show First Take.

Check out Wale’s recent video for “Let A N*gga Know” featuring Coke Boyz representative Chinx Drugz off Wale’s recently released mixtape Folarin:
