Wale, The Album About Nothing
Wale’s faced a ton of criticism during his time in hip-hop, most likely because he’s so easy to wind up on social media. “You can say I'm sensitive, but music is why I live,” the rapper said during an interview with Billboard in March. “All I can go by is the people and what they say. People ask, ‘Why do you check social-media comments?’ But what else do I have, bro?” The Album About Nothing, the Maybach Music Group recording artist’s fourth in total, hit shelves this past March and is one of his best releases to date. Unlike 2013’s The Gifted, which lacked cohesiveness, The Album About Nothing was a complete body of work, full of confidence.
