(AllHipHop News) A year ago, Wale was caught on tape cursing out employees at Complex Media. The Washington, DC native was upset his third album, The Gifted, did not make the publications’ list of the Top 50 Albums of 2013.
“I swear to God I’ll come to that office and start knocking n****s the f**k out,” said Wale at the time. “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.”
The two sides have apparently gotten past Wale’s over-the-phone threats in order to do a feature story on the MMG rapper as well as the source for some of his musical inspiration – comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
The emcee and the comedic legend even got together to spoof Wale’s rejection from “The List.” During the skit, Seinfeld makes references to Jay Z and Juicy J, and he encourages Wale to call Complex to express his anger over being omitted from their rankings.
Wale’s appreciation for Seinfeld’s comedy has been displayed throughout his career. He has released the projects The Mixtape About Nothing and More About Nothing which featured vocal samples from the classic NBC sit-com Seinfeld. They also worked together on Wale’s upcoming fourth LP The Album About Nothing.
