We're Making an Album About Nothing: Wale & Jerry Seinfeld - "Outro About Nothing" (The Gifted)


It's about damn time that Jerry Seinfeld (AKA "Jerry Seinfeld" of Seinfeld fame) linked up with DC emcee and self-proclaimed super-fan Wale, who's already released 2 Seinfeld-themed projects, The Mixtape About Nothing and More About Nothing (2008-10). Propelled by Mrs. Seinfeld's love for Hip-Hop, the comedian-rapper team are supposedly working on a full-length collaboration that's been ingeniously dubbed, "The Album About Nothing." While that one's presumably still in-the-works, Wale's new Rick Rubin/Maybach Music Group-backed album, The Gifted, is in stores today, June 25th; some footage culled from the recording sessions for it's closing track, "Outro About Nothing," leaked mid-Monday afternoon. Filmed in stark black-and-white, it's essentially just an average conversation between Wale & Jerry Seinfeld recorded between takes, which employs Seinfeld's dry sense of humor. The Gifted houses a wide array of features submitted by everyone from Rihanna to Juicy J, and still utilizes a strong DC Go-Go influence, much like Wale's previous formative work(s).
