Wale Approaches Raptors Announcer After Being Made Fun Of At Wizards Game

The Washington Wizards hosted the Toronto Raptors Tuesday where D.C. native, and rapper, Wale started some drama with Rudy Gay, and Raptors play-by-play announcer, Matt Devlin.

It started when Wale was reportedly talking trash to Raptors forward, Rudy Gay, from his court side seat at the Verizon Center. Gay responded by motioning for Wale to call him (seen in video below) which prompted Devlin to talk about Wale – calling him a “local rapper”, making fun of his name, and saying “He’s not Drake, that’s for sure”. Wale didn’t take it so well. The rapper not only tweeted “shut your mouth” to the announcer, but approached him at their broadcast table.

    Looks just like that other freakin idiot Lil Wayne. I guess he figures he’s intitled to heckle someone but if someone pokes at him he brings out the numb nut that he is.

    It’s cute to be anonymous and make blanket racist comments and throw the n word around like you’re tough… I bet my life you won’t come out and say that to any black man’s face.

    Yeah I remember this guy from Bonnaroo… He was late to his set and proceeded to be terrible. One of the worst shows of the festival.
