Wale Drops New "Bait' Video


Recommended Posts

By Rob Markman

As Wale gears up to drop his sophomore LP Ambition on November 1, on Friday the Maybach Music MC premiered his video for “Bait,” featuring TCB. Filmed in his native D.C. on Hanover Street, Wale truly puts on for his city as evident by his opening bars: “Made it big with go-go, and I made it with that dough flow/ This right here for D.C., this one right here for Polo.”

The original “Bait” video, released in September was a NSFW clip where the Rick Ross-affiliate paraded through a strip club showering dancers stacks and stacks of cash wrapped in rubber bands. Now the cleaned up version of the song’s video which originally appeared on Wale’s The Eleven One Eleven mixtape is an MTV Jam of the Week.

The new Dre Films-directed clip is devoid of all the inappropriateness of the original. Dressed in a yellow New Orleans Hornets basketball jersey, the MMG spitter takes viewers on a tour through his hood. The song is a true hometown anthem as Wale shouts out a host of places like Stadium Club as well as the Goodman Basket Ball League.

In another scene Wale leaves the block and heads to the blacktop to ball for the cameras, while another scene finds the rapper in the club performing for a rambunctious crowd. Though fans are used to seeing Wale in swaged-out Miami backdrops lately, it’s great to see that the passionate MC can still go back home despite all of his success.

Wale’s upcoming Ambition will mark his first solo release on Rozay’s Maybach Music Group and is set to feature Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Big Sean, Kid Cudi and Miguel.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
