Wale Gets An Early Homecoming In “Bait” Video
Posted by Videoson 10/21/2011 at 2:19 PM
D.C.’s proudest son invites us to a block party in new video “Bait,” with a guest list that’s grown considerably in the two years since his debut album Attention Deficit. Now that he’s a part of Maybach Music Group, and under the tutelage of Rick Ross, he’s got a dose of extra swagger, claiming “[he's] why baby mamas leave” in the track from his August mixtape The Eleven One Eleven Theory. The clip has been amended from an original version this summer featuring Wale and friends in THE GREATEST STRIP CLUB IN ALL THE WORLD, King of Diamonds. Breezy knows it well. Here, Wale draws a crowd to the local courts, where he can showcase his live band and the District’s finest non-exotic dancers amidst sharing drink recipes and commenting on the city’s female undergrads, before the party ultimately moves indoors for a proper show. We’ve seen it before, sure, but that doesn’t make it less fun. Wale’s second full-length album Ambition comes out November 1 from which we should expect every video to include some kind of scenery from the nation’s capital. D.C. Tourism is already infinitely thankful.
