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.

3. While running back on defense, Gay responded to something Wale had said earlier in the night.

5. Devlin misunderstood the interaction, and explained to the audience he thought that Wale may have been heckling Gay.

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

8. Devlin then took it to another level.

With his honor challenged, Wale approached the announcer’s booth in the third quarter hoping to have a word with Devlin.

12. Devlin was welcoming, unaware of the shot he had fired.

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.”

18. Expect a Matt Devlin diss-track in the near future.
