The Raptors beat the Wizards in a sloppy, ugly game in Washington on Tuesday night to extend their winning streak to five games, but the most entertaining part of the contest was undoubtedly the feud between Rudy Gay and D.C. rapper Wale, who was sitting courtside.

Gay also seemed to stare down Wale minutes later after coming up with a steal, but the real story was that people must have been tweeting at the hip hop star to tell him about Devlin’s comments on the broadcast, because he tweeted to Matt soon after…


Wale Folarin ✔ @Wale

@MattDevlinRaps watch ur mouth

What's confusing? the OP explains it....i didn't put it in spanish.

It probably is thread worthy...a popular rapper confronted a commentary booth and tweeted about it. But then again this is the NBA forum...sorry this isn't about the Lakers or Heat

He fell off since going mainstream. Now that he had a ton a success, there's not much else to rap about really. He has no real life problems anymore either. Look at Kanye; College Dropout was dope and now he's talking about money too.

We have that unsweetened crap where adding sugar doesn't even make it as good. Poutine is only good if its really unhealthy. Need those bacon strips and jalapeno bits on it and **** veggie gravy.

Wale was a actually a dope rapper a few years back with his mixtapes. 100 miles and running, mixtape about nothing (absolute classic), back to the feature and even more about nothing.

Then he signed with MMG and went to the *****.

Someone should find the clip of when he actually approached the commentary table. It looked like Wale was pissed and a mic in the back faintly picked up Leo Rautins telling Wale to calm down.

Drake sucks post 2010(ish).

Agreed, maybe even before that. I remember the first time I heard his mixtape with 9th wonder and Little Brother. He was just straight hip hop and I was impressed.... then all of a sudden he was on the radio singing about girls he used to have and throwing in the occasional good line so people thought his music was street. Brutal.

Yerp. Again, much like Drake, started off strong and put himself on the map using 9th Wonder beats. I actually liked his first album but I haven't heard much worth listening to lately.

Who else are they going to rep, Celine Dion? Bieber? Avril Lavigne? Oh, Canada, I do like poutine, but did you have to dump your cultural garbage on us? (and maybe you hate poutine because it's common up there, but when I can find it down here it's pure awesome-- superfat cheese gravy-- I get a similar high when dipping my fries into the cheese/meat/fat overflow of a cheesesteak.
