It’s hard to tell if the mild response to Wale’s More About Nothing is due to it not being as good as Mixtape About Nothing or if people are still punishing him for Attention Deficit. “The Work” would make it seem like the latter, since he gets into some rushing, internal rhyme sequences and it’s a song, unlike a lot of Attention Deficit, that doesn’t bear the flop sweat of trying to turn it into a hit. The video captures that nonchalance, as Wale clowns in a park. No days off shit, indeed.
More About Nothing is out now.
