Wale Gets Mad at NBA Announcer for Drake Diss
“He’s not Drake, that’s for sure.” When NBA announcer Matt Devlin made this seemingly innocent remark about Wale, he had no idea that the rapper would confront him over the diss.
Devlin, who is from Toronto, apparently did not know who Wale was and made the dig during a recent Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards game. Wale, who is originally from the Washington, D.C., area and just so happened to be sitting nearby, caught wind of this and wasn’t a happy camper. Wale first tweeted to Devlin, “watch ur mouth,” and then approached him at the announcers’ table.
Despite the video footage, it seems that the two are buds even though Devlin didn’t know who the MMG rapper was. In a post-game interview, Wale explained, “I was just introducing myself, that’s all. Nah, I wasn’t angry. I was like, you’re not from here, you don’t know. You don’t know.”
