Wale Feels He's

Wale also said he "would've been offended" if he wasn't mentioned on Kendrick Lamar's verse for Big Sean's "Control."

Wale, one of the rappers mentioned in Kendrick Lamar's much-discussed appearance on Big Sean's "Control," recently spoke about his reaction to the verse. 

"I would've been offended if my name wasn't in that shit," Wale said in an interview with TMZ. "So shout out to TDE and shout out to Kendrick."

Wale also said how he feels about his status among Hip Hop's greats. 

"I still feel like I'm the best rapper on the planet," Wale said. "I feel like that and you should too, TMZ."

Lamar's verse mentions Wale, among other rappers. 

"I'm usually homeboys with the same niggas I'm rhymin' with," Lamar said on the song. "But this is Hip Hop and them niggas should know what time it is. That goes for Jermaine ColeBig K.R.I.T.WalePusha T, Meek MillA$AP RockyDrake, Big Sean, Jay Electron[ica], Tyler[, the Creator]Mac Miller. I got love for you all but I'm tryin' to murder you niggas. Trying to make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas [and that] they don't want to hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas. What is competition? I'm trying to raise the bar high." 

Yesterday (August 14), several rappers spoke about Kendrick Lamar's verse. Iggy Azalea said the verse was "amazing" and that it was "over-sensationalized." Cassidy, who released one of many diss song responses to the verse, praised Lamar's "heart" and said he's "excited" about the track.

      Nah... you suck dick faggot.
  • Youngindy21
    He could be..... but his music sucks so nobody cares. Or at least it does now. Wale is definitely up there in terms of lyrics but some of his newer stuff is kinda not that great. I'll give The Gifted a few more listens to see if my opinion changes but I liked his old mixtapes and his first 2 albums more. Not sure why people hating on Wale cus there are few new school rappers that are on his level lyrically.

    What planet is Wale from?
  • kinglio21093
    Why are rappers so fucking unrealistic? Like dead ass. Wale is talented. But for God sake, there's NO WAY he's not the best in the planet. I can't fucking stand all these cocky bastards who think they the dopest in the world when it's not even close. Be fucking humble man and do you. Rappers are so ignorant.

      ILL FUCKIN verse from DMX off of his debut album. Too bad nobody else knows this...
    • Anonymous
      DMX was the man in the 90s, but that was more than a decade ago. His first few albums are all classics, but he made poor decisions and fell the fuck off.

    Wale is the best rapper in the game. He worked with a certified gangster and is huge.
    • dentaldamboy
      Y'all KNOW that i'm just playin'!! Ross is prob the fakest dude in the game! Wale is by far the greatest rapper and he needs to leave that fake ass, wack ass MMG label!!
    • dentaldamboy

      anybody that appeals to 14 year old girls are obviously gonna sell the most records...little spoiled girls get what they want, thats the reason drake sells so much..and hes not hip hop (not even a little bit) hes a rapper/ singer
    • dentaldamboy
      You stupid faggot. You are only saying this because Jay-Z, more like Cray-Z, said that Drake was the Kobe Bryant of rap. GTFOH!! Clown ass muthafucka! Drake is extremely corny and FAKE. You ever hear him talk? All proper and shit? Then all of a sudden he raps with this ghetto accent that came outta nowhere?? GAY, GAY, GAY, CORNY, AND FAKER THAN A MOTHERFUCKER. Drake is the king of talentless singing and trying to sound like Lil Stayne.

      2PAC is and always will be the greatest rapper of all time by far Lyrical Content - 2PAC beats any other rapper, his music was so meaningful, the themes of most of Tupac's songs are the violence and hardship in inner cities, racism, other social problems - PAC WINS Voice - 2PAC had the greatest voice is rap, it was perfect, he can be angry and agressive in Hit Em Up and Changes, then soft in Dear Mama. MTV voted him 09 of the best voices in music ever, michael jackson was 10th - PAC was ahead of every other rapper Lyrical Skill - Yeah pac didnt have the greatest metaphors, it's easy to have skillful lyrics when your rapping about cars, sex, money, sex , cars, PAC told stories and rapped about real important topics, and he didnt try to have skillful lyrics, also the greatest rapper for lyrical skill is eminem. and 2pac beats him on every other catogary Greatest Lyricist - Pac haands down, other than his lyrics having great meaning, PAC made 400 songs in one year, he writ and recorded the songs in The Don Kiluminati in 7 days, people will great metaphors in there lyrics take YEARS TO MAKE THEIR 'CLASSIC' Albums fukin idiot Greatest Person - PAC
    • BOY
      Real Bloods in LA (Compton) respect Wayne and got his back. No real gangster respected Pac. Thats why they terminated his bitch ass for being a fake ass loud mouth. YMCMB!
