Wale's 'More About Nothing' Mixtape Coming To Streaming Services – With Jerry Seinfeld's Help

Wale is bringing his More About Nothing mixtape to streaming services almost 12 years after it originally dropped.

The DMV rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday (April 20) to announce an April 29 release date and share a trailer for the project. He also thanked Jerry Seinfeld, who is heavily sampled from his Seinfeld show, for helping to clear everything so that it could be added to streaming platforms.

“Thank Jerry Seinfeld,” he wrote. “That guy made all the calls to clear so much stuff. #moreaboutnothing is otw.”

More About Nothing was released for digital download on August 3, 2010 with features from Wiz Khalifa, Waka Flocka Flame, Fat Trel, Dre from Cool & Dre, Tre of UCB, Daniel Merriweather, Sam Sparro, Black Cobain, Roscoe Dash, Avery Storm and Northeast Groovers. Wale previously revealed the difficulty in clearing the mixtape for streaming services in August 2021.

“I Secretly been workin for two years to rerelease this,” he tweeted at the time. “I did everything in my power to surprise y’all and get this on dsp today. But it’s really impossible to clear EVERYTHING no matter how much I tried .. maybe one day. Happy Bday to the SECOND ‘about nothing’ project.”

More About Nothing is one of Wale’s three Seinfeld-themed projects including 2008’s The Mixtape About Nothing and 2015’s The Album About Nothing. For the latter album, Wale and Jerry Seinfeld personally recorded together.

“I think I met him even before I knew about the mixtape,” Seinfeld said in 2015. “My wife was a fan and she plays his music in the house all the time. I liked it, too — I don’t spend much time putting together playlists, but that’s what’s nice about being in a family is people just inflict it on you. I absorb it that way.”

He continued, “So I had heard his name and then he came to a show and asked if he could say hello, so he came backstage. I thought he was a very charming young man. And then I heard about the mixtape, and he came up with the idea of doing the whole album. It just felt so offbeat and that’s what appeals to me.”

The Album About Nothing ended up debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with roughly 100,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
