Wale Threatens Complex Staff After Exclusion From ’50 Best Albums’ List

Wale

Wale does not take rejection lightly. After his album was excluded from Complex‘s list of 50 Best Albums of 2013, he went ballistic.

The MMG rapper called up the magazine and unleashed a tirade on one of the staff members. He was upset that his album, The Gifted, was not included in the publication’s best of 2013 list.

During the three-minute phone call, Wale claimed that Complex had a personal bias towards him. Things quickly got heated and he started screaming.

“At this point, you know it’s got to be personal,” he said. “You telling me it’s not personal. It’s like a bold face lie. To be omitted from every type of list that y’all do or be at the bottom of it or every type of way that y’all can omit me, ya will.”

He even took a shot at Juicy J, who collaborated with him on “Clappers” off The Gifted. “You mean to tell me Juicy J album better than mine?” he said. “Is that what you trying to tell me?”

Before the writer had a chance to respond, Wale started making violent threats. “I swear to God I’ll come to that office and start knocking ni**as the fuck out,” he screamed. “Alright, I’ll see y’all tomorrow. Get the security ready.”

Listen to the intense phone call below.

UPDATE: Following the leaked audio, Wale has shared his reaction on Instagram. “Set it off,” he joked.

    Niggas got a fucking point, I hate how people under estimate Wale prob just cus hes signed to MMG, hes got more talented than anybody signed to MMG and most people in the rap game, how is complex gonna rate The H by Rick Ross & Birdman, Migos, French Montana, 2 Chainz & Juicy J albums better than The Gifted?! The Gifted is a solid fucking album imo & most of these best albums lists are fucking bullshit

  5. STFU WALE

    WALE NEEDS TO CHILL THE FUCK OUT. WHY IS HE SPAZZING TO COMPLEX BECAUSE OF ONE LIST. IT’S ONLY ONE LIST YOUR ALBUM IS PROBABLY LISTED ON ANOTHER LIST. DO YOU REALLY CARE, BECAUSE PERSONALLY “THE GIFTED” WAS PURE HOT GARBAGE TO ME AND IT GOT THE RECYLE BIN TREATMENT. MIND YOU IT HAD A FEW A GOOD SONGS BUT OVERALL IT WAS HORRIBLE. SO WHAT WALE NEED TO DO IS TAKE ALL THAT ANGER HE HAS WITH COMPLEX AND PUT IT TO GOOD USE BY MAKING A BETTER ALBUM

    @STFU WALE, Amen. TBH, Wale’s songs are only good for their features. Tiara Thomas stole the show on bad, Love Hate Thing had that soulful dude (I don’t even know his name but he outshined Wale), and Clappers….well, Clappers is pure garbage.

    I’m more ashamed that Complex didn’t list any of the 2 Justin Timberlake albums this year. Someone over there is clearly taking drugs…

    But Wale, Juicy J’s album WAS better than yours. He’s overall a catchier rapper than you, so STFU.

    I feel so bad for that guy on the phone, Wale was in the mood where it didn’t matter what the guy said, Wale was still gonna yell. What an ignoramus.
