Wale Debuts ‘More About Nothing’ Mixtape at NY Show
Wale brought the buzz of his new ‘More About Nothing’ mixtape to New York City on Monday night (Aug.16) with an energetic set at the Highline Ballroom.
Diggy Simmons held down the mic with his popular viral freestyle over Nas‘ ‘Made You Look’ before handing things over to Wale, who kicked off a one-hour set with the Bun B-featured track ‘Mirrors,’ followed by ‘World Tour’ off his ‘Attention Deficit’ album.
One of Wale’s first choice performances from the new Seinfeld-themed mixtape included the track ‘The Friends & Strangers,’ which opened up the doors for a guest appearance from Wale’s longtime touring partner, J. Cole. The Roc Nation emcee took the stage to drop his verse on the ‘Attention Deficit’ track ‘Beautiful Bliss’ and stuck around long enough to perform his latest single ‘Blow Up,’ from his upcoming Roc Nation debut.
After Cole’s exit, Wale got back to business with his classic street anthem ‘Nike Boots,’ and continued to alternate his set between new mixtape tracks and album favorites that included ‘The Soup,’ and ‘902010.’ His performance of the single ‘Pretty Girls,’ spawned another guest appearance from Brooklyn rapper Fabolous and for his encore, Wale wrapped things up with ‘More About Nothing’s’ lead single ‘The Black & Gold.’
