Wale brought his unfiltered, fiery opinions to his The Breakfast Club.
During their convo, the “The Body” rapper touched on being gay in the music industry. He said he feels like an openly gay rapper could be successful in the game despite their sexuality.
“I would sign a gay rapper if he was dope.,” he said. “It’s 2015. All that homophobic stuff is corny.” He added, “It’a an advantage to be gay in this country right now. Frank Ocean is a very dope artist. He got pushed to the moon when his album dropped. There were about 30 artists who sold about the amount that he did or more and they didn’t get none of that. He got a prime spot at the Grammys. All these things happened for him.”
The D.C spitter also spoke about his latest album, The Album About Nothing, which he said he feels wasn’t given enough attention by his label, Atlantic Records. The project was narrated by comedian Jerry Seinfeld which he said he knows affected the way it resonated with young fans.

“I know if it was Kevin Hart it would’ve been received a lot better,” he said. “It wasn’t really about [Seinfeld] though. It was about the philosophies that he was bestowing upon me.”
Wale also gave his opinion on the beef between Drake and MMG brethren Meek Mill. He said called Drizzy on Twitter wasn’t a good look nor he did he hold his own during the battle.
“I honestly think he brought a pencil to a gun fight,” Wale said about Meek’s part in the battle. “You can’t compete with somebody who [has those] types of relationships…He could have wrote ‘Ether 3.0.’ The opinions of the people would have been that of their boy from Canada waxed him.”
