“My all what you think of it…on this long road accumulating luggage…as time proceeds, preoccupied with everything I think…it’s about time that I sing of nothing…” (The Intro About Nothing)
First Wale released The Mixtape About Nothing almost 10 years ago. Then came the mixtape More About Nothing & now he has released The Album About Nothing.
The idea is a take on Seinfeld, known as the show about nothing. Throughout the album there are snippets from the show going along with the theme from the song it’s in. The album features J. Cole, SZA, Usher, Jeremih, & Kanye West. It’s a good mix of subject matter delivered in the usual Wale way, with a few spoken word breakdowns. The album flows well together. My personal favorite song is The Need To Know featuring SZA, which features a sample of Musiq’s Just Friends. The album caps off with the song Summer League featuring Kanye, which is a great mix of his DC Go Go music & Ye’s Chi-town House.
Just last night Wale released the visual for the song The White Shoes. The song is about doing your thing & styling in your own way. Wale sings, “Take this good advice…cuz they gonna judge you for life…say we can’t always be fly…we gon be good as long as them sneakers white…”
