Wale Confronts NBA Commentators For Making Fun Of Him

Wale addressed NBA commentators who referred to him as a "well-known local rapper."

Wale didn't take a pair of commentator's comments lightly. While at the Washington Wizards game last night, the Maybach Music Group member heckled Toronto Raptors’ Rudy Gay, an incident that elicited a response from the player. The commentators turned their attention to the emcee, branding him as a "local rapper" and stating that "he's not Drake, that's for sure."

"A fan heckling him and supposedly, this fan is a well-known local rapper. Wall-ay. Locally, here," said one commentator. "Wale is inspiring. I'm sure somebody on Twitter could tell me if they exactly had ever heard of Wale. He's not Drake, that's for sure."

The Washington, D.C. native then left his courtside seat to confront the commentators for belittling him on the mic. While the confrontation is without audio, someone uploaded a clip of Wale addressing the commentators to YouTube.

Wale, who recently dropped off his mixtape Folarin, is currently prepping the release of either an album or mixtape titled The Album About Nothing with comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

Watch the clips below (via RR).

    The tour's been canceled, Rozay's in fear of his life, Gunplay gets caught robbing on camera, then gets his ass kicked and his chain snatched, Meek's album flops, he gets ethered by Cassidy, and Wale gets ethered by a middle-aged sportscaster. The hits just keep on comin'!

    Wale aka Olubowale Victor Akintimehin Folarin - When son brought his slave wave to the game...nobody thought he would amount to shit b. NOBODY.... And they was right. There aint one muthafucka in the industry who crowns hisself for more accomplishments that he never actually accomplished than ya boy Olubowale be doin nahmean. To be honest tho...son aint even trash like that...he jus emotionally delicate n he got the personality of a 7 year old white kid from Bel Air namsayin. If you aint never seen the nigga throw a tantrum you either dont got access to the internets or you jus dont actually kno who the fuck son is at all son. But son is mad protective over his image b. Like.. more than normal niggas usually is namsayin. This the type of dude who updates his own wikipedia page b.

  • yourdad
    wow, some of these rappers will do anything for attention... and way too sensitive. So what Wal-E, so what if a middle aged white man never heard of you? Most have not heard of you bro, relax.. enjoy the game. Black people need to do better, man..

  • datnigga
    Hip-Hop is looking great right now. Lables like TDE & GOOD are thriving and blossoming while labels like MMG & YMCMB are slowly sinking. Drake, stick to your OVO label. How many times are you supposed to stand by Wayne while he keeps making his team look bad?

    If Wale don't stand up for himself, nobody will. Any one of you would do the same thing if somebody was dismissing you as just some local joke, or a wanna be.
  • ayo

      that wale thinks hes more famous than he really is. he got emotional cause some white basketball announcer didnt know who he was and said he's no drake, which is true.

      @anonymous thats a shameless and deliberate distortion of the incident. the guy was clearly being disrespectful and condescending. you like a tmz ass nigga
    Wale not really soft for this sometimes you got to address people on certain situation dude cross the line calling him a local rapper and talk about he not drake i mean come on kind of pushing it there and before you speak do your research bout me
    • Clownnnn

  • hah
    you always know when a guy pussy.. he wont say shit to the tall, semi strong black nba player who can prob brawl (or atleast better than the announcers) but hell go up 2 the short, soft white announcers and act hard... thats how u can always tell someone pussy when they try 2 stunt on soft white people but act bitchmade when a black dude step 2 him.. SOFT. hes perfect for mmg, between him, officer ricky and weak mill... they got the softest group in america in history
    • Tom
      You racist prick. Because he's white he has to be soft? And because he's black he's hard? GTFOH. He didn't step to the black guy because the black guy probably had a gun and would shoot him for his Jordans.
    • lex

    I wouldn't even sweat them dudes if I was Wale, especially when he obviously makes more bank than them. They can stick to the smart ass comments. We're getting money over here.
    • Anonymous
