Wale‘s debut album, ‘Attention Deficit,’ received lack-luster success compared to the hype that was built around it. But never one to quit, Mr. Folarin returned on Tuesday, Aug. 3, with his new DJ Omega-hosted mixtape, ‘More About Nothing,’ to reclaim his throne as one of the most buzzed-about young rappers.

The project is the sequel to his immensely popular 2008 Seinfeld-inspired project, ‘The Mixtape About Nothing,’ which cemented him as an Internet favorite. The mixtape opened up with the track ‘The Problem,’ which delves into a few potential reasons for his album’s mediocre success, despite boasting production from Mark Ronson and features from artists like Bun B., J. Cole, Melanie Fiona and Jazmine Sullivan.

In addition to throwing out the reminder that his album was under-shipped on its’ release date, Wale also reiterates one of his biggest complaints — being forced to stand behind the album’s lead single ‘Chillin,’ which hit a particularly sour note with his D.C. home base for its’ pop notes and Lady Gaga feature.

‘More About Nothing’ became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter hours before its’ release yesterday, and three hours after it hit the web the mixtape had already pulled in 100,000 downloads. Wale — always the avid tweeter — documented the process step-by-step, and provided multiple links as servers continued to crash due to the volume of high downloads. “Over 100K downloads in 3 hrs..i’m speechless…thnk ya’ll so much,” Wale wrote. “I really don’t know what to say…this is amazing.”
