Wale has skills. He can make a mixtape about nothing and we’re all clamoring for even more about nothing. How does he do it? Incredible prowess on the mic? Black magic? Regardless, he’s done it again, this time in visual form with the video for “The Work” (via Wale’s official site).
Like Seinfeld, the inspiration for the mixtapes, Wale essentially does nothing throughout the clip. He’s hanging out with his friends, rapping in a back alley, playing with some local neighborhood girl, rapping on a basketball hoop (be careful!), and genuinely doing little to capture our attention; yet, for some possibly mystical reason, he has every iota of it! We chalk it up to his inspired delivery and a super bumping beat. That or we’re worn out on evil looking blobs in music videos.
Enjoy the video below. Or do nothing. Doesn’t matter to us.
