Wale is not a happy camper. The rapper flipped out on a Complex staffer after being excluded from the magazine’s ’50 Best Albums of 2013′ list.

Complex shares that Wale was fuming over his third LP, ‘The Gifted,’ being left off the annual best albums list. The conversation between the Maybach Music Group member and writer Insanul Ahmed was recorded. Unfortunately, Wale threatened Ahmed with physical violence. “I swear to God I’ll come to that office and start knocking n—-s the f— out,” he screamed. Ahmed says he tried to calmly talk to the rapper. “Alright,” Wale said. “I’ll see y’all tomorrow. Get the security ready.”

The rhymer also demanded to know why Juicy J‘s album was included on the list and not his. “You mean to tell me Juicy J album better than mine?” he asked, his voice rising. “Is that what you trying to tell me?”

The magazine maintains that it has no ill will towards Wale. In fact, Wale has made several of Complex’s other year-end lists including ‘The Best Songs of 2013 (So Far)’ and ‘The 50 Best Rapper Mixtapes.’

This isn’t the first time the 29-year-old MC has had an angry outburst. In 2010, he went off on a jock at a Baltimore radio station and earlier this year, he had an exchange with David Otunga, Jennifer Hudson’s husband, on Twitter.
