Wale - "The Album About Nothing" project with Jerry Seinfeld. 16 August 2014.

I'm a major Seinfeld fan.  But then again, who isn't?  When I first heard about the collaboration between Walle and Jerry Seinfeld, I was very intrigued.  


Granted, I'm not the biggest rap fan in the world, my interest was piqued when news about this project came to light.    


Just listening to "The Title Sequence" from "The Mixtape About Nothing", which features Wale rapping over the Seinfeld theme, was enough for me.




In May, 2008, Wale dropped "The Mixtape About Nothing", which featured Seinfeld themed titles, all being named "The _____________", in accordance with show titles, and featuring Seinfeld in-jokes and references and even featuring an appearance by Elaine.
Wale's 2013 album, "The Gifted", featured Jerry Seinfeld on "The Outro About Nothing".

In 2014, Wale announced "The Album About Nothing" would see a Fall 2014 release. This is some great behind the scenes footage from that session:

 
 

The exact release date in the Fall is unknown at this time, but I'll be picking it up day one. Hopefully it will see a vinyl release.


See more photos of the project from Wale's Instagram below. I'm getting more and more excited as more info, photos and videos are released!

Breaking Bad (Blue Vinyl) Release Date Update. 1 Aug 2014.

I spoke with SpaceLab9 and got an update on the Breaking Bad Blue Vinyl. This release has been pushed to August 5th, 2014 - and will be available at HotTopic.com and in stores as well. For an early released photo of the vinyl itself, a member on VinylCollective.com shared this photo.

Obviously, demand for this release is much higher, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get my hands on one.  It was hard to get the PINKman release, so it remains to be seen how difficult this one will be to acquire.
