Rapper Wale Picked A Fight With The Toronto Raptors Televison Announcer

You can’t just say Drake is better than Wale on TV and get away with it.

Biggie vs. Tupac. Nas vs. Jay-Z. Snoop Dogg vs. sobriety. All are legendary hip-hop beefs, but last night, Wale picked a fight with Toronto Raptors broadcast announcer Matt Devlin in what may be the biggest (and dumbest) feud of them all.

2. Rapper Wale was in attendance to watch the Washington Wizards host the Toronto Raptors. Apparently, Wale and new Raptor Rudy Gay are pals.

Unbeknownst to Devlin, lots of people on Twitter have heard of Wale. He’s got 2.7 million Twitter followers.

13. Luckily a Drake doppelgänger held Wale back.

Whatever Wale actually said couldn’t be heard on the television broadcast, but we imagine it was something like this.

So, like any self-respecting local rapper, Wale got the final word on Twitter.

Wale later explained to DeMar DeRozan that he picked a fight with a television announcer because it was “a slow night.”
