It wouldn’t be Wale if he didn’t drum up some type of controversy (whether intentional or not) after the announcement of the Grammy nominees.
This time, the DC bred rapper made a comment about west coast rapper Kendrick Lamar, who leads the pack with 11 Grammy nominations this year. A fan suggested Wale and Kendrick should hop on tour together and Wale’s response came with a dose of hurt tea. The MMG rapper said he hasn't talked to K-Dot since his last Grammy nomination.
Well a rapper named Jay Rock from Kendrick’s TDE camp got wind of Wale’s comment and decided to go IN. Peep his tweets (read from the bottom up):
After receiving online backlash, Wale decided to hop in the comments section on The Shade Room’s IG account where he cleared up his statement about Kendrick. He said he has no beef with Kendrick and blames "people" for stirring the pot. He wrote,
“I’ll step in the room again. Ppl will try to stir the pot.. But that’s just the way the “industry” is now. I just said I been able to reach homie for quite some time. But times where people stir the pot its easy to take things negatively. There’s no beef. No way I could even bark up that tree.. My business isn’t strong enough.. That’s like bringing a… Ah nvm u guys get it lol. I got respect for Jay Rock as he felt like maybe I was slighting..But I’m very very upfront when there’s… “shade” (see what I did there).. I deliver it priority mail when it’s necessary.. I’m sorry to inform, that there is none right now. I know people will stir the pot and I understand Jay Rock’s position.. I answered a fan question with an honest answer.. I sure hope there is a place for honesty amongst us moving forward. Sometimes we create pseudo, makeshift enemy’s out of being instigated to do such or out of plain old misinterpretation… Hope this clears up some of this.”
Well there's that.
In other online "beefs"....
