When Twitter Goes Wrong.......WALE (HAHAHAHAhA)

This is funny as hell......................This happened between Wale and Dj Semtex.


This week has been a great experience for the whole world, so i figured it would be a great opportunity to get Wale on my show this week as he is a DC native, a dope MC, who better to reflect on the Obama experience right?

So I travel for an hour to get to the studios, change studios several times as I have to wait 90 minutes for a 10 minute interview with him. From the start it kinda felt like he didn’t want to do it, then I check his Twitter page while i’m doing the interview…..

WALE - TWITTER IS NOT YOUR FRIEND

Nice. So halfway through the interview, I asked him what was up with the Twitter post…..

WALE - ‘I HATE INTERVIEWS’

Let me clear this up, there is NO blackballing, beef, tension or anything else, I dont cause drama, beef, or hype, etc.

I didn’t mean any malice. The post is fair I just said you should be careful, twitter can catch you out, which it did. Wale put up a post, I put up a post.

Wale is a fan of Seinfeld, so the title of the post was done in a way, similar to when Jerry says ‘Newman’! (cop the DVD if your confused).

Like I said, I found the whole episode funny listen to the audio. BUT later on, Wale said on twitter that he doesn’t mind doing ‘good’ interviews with certain sites, but hates people asking about DC????

I’m not being funny, but a lot of people don’t really know Wale, so its probably the best time to talk about Wale and DC. I’ve done nothing but support him, if he didn’t want to do the interview, he should have just said so.

Re. obama, Wale’s going to get asked about that for the rest of his life whether he likes it or not, which isn’t a bad thing.

Reality is my producer said I can’t use his audio because it was so flat (he sounded bored) compared to other artists on the show Nas, Lupe, Common, Green Lantern, Roze (who is from DC), etc. which is a shame.

But real talk, it is a bit disrespectful to post something like that, when your talking to people who are helping you with your movement, or someone who has waited 90 mins on the other side of the World. Thats like me a having a cipha on my show, but putting up a post halfway through the show saying I hate rappers rapping on my show.

Cool, he posted it an hour before when he was being interviewed by other people. It doesn’t matter whether its me or anyone else, DJ’s, Bloggers. Journalists, etc we all put in the work. He should have declined the interviews if he feels that way.

Can the Wale haters chill.

Can the Wale stans please stop telling me to ‘kill myself’.

 

I will continue to support Wale and his music, I spoke to Dan his manager, its all been sorted out.

Thats it. Finished. 


Thanks Semtex

Being from DC or not, the man put out one of the best pieces of work in 08 and that was a fucking mixtape that sounded damn near an album., co-signed by jay-z, produced by mark ronson, signed to interscope. Stop hating on the man.

Thats bad press...I'm with my man Jadakiss...this internet ish is getting outta hand..If you are an artist, don't put dumb ish like "I hate doing interviews" on twitter, myspace, facebook...none of that dumb ish.. What if niggas stop interviewing him? Then what? You a up-and-coming artist...You HAVE to do interviews to get to where you wanna be..Or maybe he is content? Who knows...

I fuck wit WALE...I don't know dude personally but I fucks wit how he's helpin' to elevate our city & elevate the gogo movement wit his music. I'm not a WALE hater but I'm also not a die hard WALE fan either. Wit dat being said dis is da stupidiest thing I've ever seen WALE do!!! Da world ain't never seen a DMV rapper in 20 years so U think dey don't wanna know bout wutz it's like in da DMV? Regardless of all da co-signs & buzz at da end of da day niggaz stay popular once U gotta deal by makin' hits. I believe he has strong hit potential but last time I checked none of his songs are on the top of the billboard charts quite yet. Until he gets a hit he needs every interview he can get...just my opinion. Not as many people know bout WALE as niggaz think...even in da DMV.

I was reading the updates on twitter as they happened that day i really dont think son meant any malice but when your in th elight you really have to choose your words carefully i think he got on twitter with mostly just his close friends and felt comfortable to where he could just speak freely but seeing how he just finished an interview with that guy it seemed as if he didnt like the interview he just did, but i dont think that was the case. I feel WALE on the repeative questions tho but nobody is gonna study all your interviews to insure they dont duplicate an answer. Most time the interviewer knows the answer to what they are asking they ask it anyway for their following to learn more about you.

I was on Twitter as it was happening. Honestly after his first comment about not liking interviews, I thought he was out of pocket. Especially when he's just now creating a buzz outside the area. I shortly stopped following him after that! Semtex had a valid point!
