Wale Pleads His Case On Hot 97

Wale sat down to discuss the Complex snub with Hot 97’s Ebro and Rosenberg. His previous response was only a humorous Instagram video, but he goes into detail about why he took the snub so personally. Wale says making the list isn’t only about his hard work, which he says he was extremely focused while putting The Gifted together. He says it is also for his fans, for them to have the braggin rights that he makes these year end lists.

Wale believes that Complex is not being responsible with their power as a publication, omitting him for existence because of personal feelings and his fall out with Kid Cudi, who has been featured on the cover of the magazine frequently. Wale believes the ranking should be on a consistent scale for an even playing field and that he cares more about the art form of music than a lot of others who was featured on the list. He also talks about he he felt snub by the Grammy nominations and how rappers reached out to him after the story broke.
