Wale TicketsOlubowale Victor Akemtimehen, aka Wale, is an American rapper and songwriter from Washington, DC. Wale's breakout single, 2006's "Dig Dug (Shake It)," gained him the attention of famed music producer Mark Ronson. Wale signed with Ronson's Allido Records in 2007 and started to accrue brand recognition as both a performer and a regular TV personality on networks like BET and MTV. He has gone on to be an award-winning rapper, working with artists like Chrisette Michele, Pusha T, John Mayer, Lil' Wayne and Lupe Fiasco.
The Seinfeld EffectIn 2015, Wale released his fourth and most successful studio album, The Album About Nothing. Tracks on this album were based thematically around Seinfeld and included the popular songs "The Need to Know" featuring SZA, "The Body" featuring Jeremih and "The Matrimony" featuring R&B legend Usher Raymond. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 charts as well as the Billboard US Hip-Hop and R&B charts. The Album About Nothing allowed Wale to showcase his skills as a lyricist, using Seinfeld to explore themes of fidelity, being friends with benefits, addiction and the macroculture of Hollywood. Wale has long been a fan of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, drawing inspiration from the comedians' abilities to talk about nothing while keeping the material fresh, funny and relevant.
