Wale’s Attention Deficit wasn’t the home run he or his label Interscope expected. So what does the D.C. native do? He launches a sequel of sorts to his most critically-acclaimed project to date, 2008’s Seinfeld-inspired Mixtape About Nothing. As a Rap Radar exclusive, Wale dropped More About Nothing yesterday afternoon. You can tell alot of time and effort was invested; Wale offers his fans 21 tracks with features from Wiz Khalifa, UCB and Avery Storm. Production-wise Wale gets assistance from Cool & Dre, Drumma Boy, Mark Henry and others.
If you’re like me, you’ll throw on 100 Miles & Running before Attention Deficit, so this mixtape is welcome. Wale seems much more confident and relaxed in the sandbox realm of mixtapes rather than albums. On the fence about downloading? Here’s a sample song below.
Wale feat. Avery Storm “The Power”
11.23.10- PINK FRIDAY- The Album
With that simple phrase Nicki Minaj confirmed the title of her album. Right now the details are scarce outside of “Your Love” being confirmed and Minaj promising to unveil a new alter ego dubbed Roman Zolanski. Regarding production, all she’s verified so far is that she’s been working extensively with Swizz Beatz. Nicki has nearly three calendar months to work with, so expect another single and more hype leading up to November 23.
I don’ think she’ll surpass Drake, but I predict Nicki to do sell 275-325k her first week.
Ill Bill Talks “Narco Corridos”
Ill Bill and Sick Jacken break down the concept behind this Spanish-inspired track off the DJ Muggs collaboration LP Kill Devil Hills (August 24). Album is sounding pretty good so far.
Willie the Kid feat. Lee Bannon “Bath Water Running”
DJ Drama protege Willie Kid just dropped a new video for this joint off his iTunes available Never a Dull Moment EP. The Ghostface vocal sample is highly appropriate because this is definitely something you’d expect from Pretty Toney production-wise and visually. Willie doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously and shows a little personality in this one. If anything else, the two women should hold your attention.
