So, over the past weekend, producer Tone P took to Instagram to unload his frustrations about his now-presumably broken relationship with Wale. The message centered on disrespect and the mishandling of Tone’s beats (also, the importance of communication). You can see a few clips below:
Wild Dude Here! @wale – He has the WORST business practices in the Rap Game. That’s why niggas like Cole, Meek, Big Sean, Kid Cudi, Wiz and etc. All niggas who once opened up for you, are now soaring light years past you. It’s because they respect people around them genuinely and care to do good business. Respect takes you places where music can’t. Always crying about you not being where you want to be. This is a SMALL example.
Then, he stopped by WPGC to further explain what’s going on, adding in Wale’s long-awaited Go-Go record and whether or not he’s becoming a culture vulture for the city he represents (he also took shots at DJ Money). You can see that below, courtesy of Dennis “CEO Den-Den” Johnson…while he stated that Wale has responded to him, 1.) he’s not satisfied with the response and 2.) Wale hasn’t publicly spoken on it as far as we know. Ultimately, it just sucks to hear about conflict amongst stars in this area overall.
