The Mixtape About Nothing is the fourth mixtape by American rapper Wale, released on May 30, 2008. It was mixed by Nick Catchdubs in collaboration with New York streetwear brand 10.Deep Clothing.

Olubowale Victor Akintimehin (born on September 21, 1984), better known by his stage name Wale, is an American rapper from Washington, D.C.. He rose to prominence in 2006, when his song “Dig Dug (Shake It)” became popular in his hometown. Wale became locally recognized and continued recording music for the regional audience. Producer Mark Ronson discovered Wale in 2006 and signed him to Allido Records in 2007. While signed to that label, he released several mixtapes and appeared in national media including MTV and various urban magazines.
The Mixtape About Nothing was inspired by the show Seinfeld. Wale claims he has “seen every episode”. Each track follows the series’ naming conventions for episodes, formatting each title with the definitive article “The“. In the track “The Kramer“, he raps about use of the word “nigger“, referring to the Michael Richards Laugh Factory incident, which Wale also attacks across the rest of the mixtape. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the character Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, appears on the mixtape. The Mixtape About Nothing stands as the most innovative, endlessly listenable and just plain best hip-hop record of 2008. Follow on Twitter @Wale @catchdini @MedievalBeatz Hip Hop Beats For Sale
