Wale fires back at rapper Bossman in six-minute rant

Did you hear the one where Wale delivered a six-minute rant on a Baltimore radio station? It is a doozy. The rapper was in town for a show at Rams Head Live  - where he also collected food for charity - and called in for an interview on 92Q. But off the air, he blew a gasket over a diss track called "Nail in the Coffin" by Baltimore rapper Bossman. After pulling an "I don't even know who this guy is" move, he rebutted the local rapper's track with an obscenity-laced verbal clock-cleaning that left the hosts speechless. "I'm trying to do this s*** for the people," he said. "All this bull**** dragged out right now is counterproductive. It's some middle-school s***." Oh, snap. Thankfully, a local blogger posted the whole (warning: NSFW) exchange. (via)
