City Paper is not for tourists
Earlier this week, I wrote that the promotional button had been pushed on Wale’s fourth album, The Album About Nothing, now that it’s March. On Monday, he released “The Matrimony” with Usher, and, in less than 48 hours, has shared the album cover and its tracklist.
Last night, the first of three album covers (created by artist and designer Sue Tsai) materialized. Per the D.C. rapper, a fan’s early morning interpretation of its meaning is spot-on. Will the other two covers warrant the same in-depth analysis? Probably, but more scrutiny will (and should) be directed towards the tracklist, which Wale shared this afternoon. (See it after the jump.)
If you look closely, you’ll see that Festivus’ “Girls on Drugs” appears to have made the album’s final cut. What’s missing are the featured guests. However, the people who weren’t in attendance at his album listening session (which was held at Tom’s Restaurant, maintaining the Seinfeld theme) will likely find out prior to The Album About Nothing’s March 31 release.
