Wale took to his Twitter to respond to a fan who asked if his expressive passion for music has hindered him from being mentioned among the greats. Here’s his response:

wale dark skinned success

Do you agree with him?


  1. Hes right about being a darkskin african….look all the hsk commentators who are calling me African coon and mut house dweller all beacuse of comments smdh.

    Growing up these black americans swore they were more superior to Africans calling us booty scatchers, monkeys, shadow, blackie, the african smdh. Even if you try to get into black american culture they would kind of ridicule and dismiss you like a white boy joining black culture…smdh

    • You have that ass backwards! Y’all come here thinking y’all better than us regular black folks!

      • Nothing “regular” about a grown man showing his underwear in the street, and Black women with a Blonde wigs. You have been acclimatised to insanity.

        • Fuck You hamite Bitch, whatever SOME of us do we are still better than you and are favored unlike your heathen ass.

        • Bitch please… if you only have enough money to live amongst us black Americans who show their underwear on the street… either step your economic game up where you may then join the rest of us in middle class suburbia… or shut the fuck up

    • I’m not buying that dark-skinned men don’t have it as bad a darker skinned women. But then again I love a piece of Chocolate Chocolate cake with extra chocolate sauce.

      • @Sunni Darkskin men had it worst than dark skin woman during the 1900s to the 1980s. Its not until dark skin althetes and entertainers emerged that we “got love” from sistas and other races. It wasnt light skin men or dark skin women getting lynched or castrated in high numbers right?

        Even after slavery mixed former female slaves REFUSED to mixed with darker fomer male slaves i.e the creole community smdh

        And in reality most black women like darkskin men beacuse of sex nothing else, its a fetish like how you reference us as “chocolate” smdh

    • True, now take your Afrikkkan ass off of the posts with your always negative ass.

      • The african on this blog is extremely negative toward black americans here on this site. He says we on our knees for massa and look down on us like many africans do. Akon made it, so he better go talk to the other hamite or go back to Africa and make music.

        • Nope actually when I came to America black americans look down on me.. they even laughed at my last skin color and last name because it wasnt the same as the massa… i.e Johnson, Smith, Little, King smdh

          Keep in mind these are same men who say they are oppressed smdh…

          • Ever asked yourself why Black Americans looked down on Africans? Because you Africans bitches look down on us like you all high and mighty! Like you being from another country will exempt you from racial discrimination.

          • it blows my mind how we as african people regardless of where you descend from compare who receives the worst treatment. please stop it. It proves no point

        • Ditto these African folks have black American women running around with braids so tight they can’t think straight giving them hundreds of dollars for a head of pain while in Africa they perming. Ungrateful liars is what they are

    • “All because of comments”? C’mon now stop it. You know what you did. What type of comments though? I distinctively remember reading your hate speech toward us on a regular basis way b4 anybody even responded back. You just went on and on like you were looking for a response…until you got it. Now you mad. That’s funny.

      • You guys were calling on my death..and demise wtf…is that like an American thing if you dont agree with a person you wish on them to suffer?smdh

        • You are sooooo dramatic?omg!! I can’t speak for anyone but myself and I know I did nothing of the sort. I will say though that your comments got to the point where we just couldn’t hear NOT ANOTHER word about how horrible we are and how EVERYTHING that EVER happens is connected back to us being lazy, promiscuous, manly, ghetto, uneducated, loud, unclothed, mean, lesbian and a host of other derogatory things. What? Did you think we couldn’t serve it back? You got your opinions that you stated on daily basis and we have ours that we responded back with. Grow up or shut up..this is how it’s done nigga.

            • @16:38 Hmm so how come when i speak about the ills of black women these women are quick to run to Sasha. Shouldnt you guys just take it and dish it back…smdh

              • No one runs to sasha with you, I can clown you well enough w/o her.

                She just hates your Bitch Ass.

  2. Ok, dmx is dark…young thug…the majority of the 90s rappers…and 2000s…what is he talking about? Hell Rick Ross and Meek Mill are dark too. Ol cry baby ass

  3. This website used to Raw with REAL INDUSTRY INSIDERS! Omg! What happen to Jacky Jasper?????

    • Good question. He was on it, I looked forward to coming here. Now I just pass thru when I’ve exhausted the other blogs.

    • I too want to know what happen to Jacky Jasper? This site has been generic lately. I hope him talking hasn’t cost him anything.

  4. His skin complexion has nothing to do with it! Most rappers are dark brown! His music is garbage, he just needs to accept it. What makes him think he should be in the same league as the greats??

    • Exactly! Just like Azealia Banks they are fuckin trash AND fugly as hell. To this day nobody knows how the fuck they got signed to any label in the first place. And yes this website used to be VERY raw! Jacky Jasper need to turn up or somethin

  5. Nah he’s just trash. Majority of rappers are dark skinned so he sounds dumb af.

  6. He’s from the DMV … no rapper will ever pop coming from that “urea”

    • I’m from the DMV and WE don’t like Wale! But you are right, it’s hard for rappers here

      • Yeah the streets don’t like him because he’s really from Gaithersburg tho he tried to claim PG/DC

  7. Dark skinned black men IS hip hop. But they are american. Its a difference, we just not fuckin with Uuuu…

  8. What a loaded question! He didn’t have to answer it. Some of the words used are suspect in that question.

    • RIGHT! and sneak dissin J. Cole and Post Malone and G-Eazy but it don’t even matter because Papoose already FINISHED THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY lol omg

        • Only a Maricon would say “oh they are not half white” and straight up defend the fuckin executives you retarded brainwashed cocksucker Lmfao They do not like us! They are stereotypical! That’s why rappers are becoming more and more “soft” as the years go by as a matter they robbing our entire culture and hiring WHITE people like themselves to entertain them with OUR kind of music!

  9. Sorry but, at his peak, Big Daddy Kane was not only extra dark and proud but popular without being corny. How popular was he? First rapper to have a spread in Playgirl magazine and have Madonna sweating him. Not sure if he hit but he was in her coffee table book.

    Oh yeah, his lyrics and beats were way better than today’s sound plus he could put on a show.

  10. I think Wale is attractive but seems to have a nasty attitude. There’s so many dark skin men who look unattractive and they’ve made it far 50 cent, Lil Wayne, Young Thug , Kodack Black ,and the list goes on. As far as dark skin women they have it harder ask Amara La Negra.

    • And to 50’s credit…

      I know some of y’all think he’s gay but I saw him at a Grammy after party a few years ago. When I say the man has a polished swag and aura about him that is regal and strong..

      I can see why Auntie Viv is still sweating him.

  11. No Wale…it’s because you are trash. The only songs we remember from you are because the hooks are fire. No one remembers your lyrics…they are only fillers to get to the hooks. Sorry homie.

  12. Nope cause he ain’t even that dark. His beats suck, it sound too commercial. He need to hire DJ Mustard and stop trying to sound like Jhene and even she knows how to come harder.

  13. Plenty rappers are chocolate. Kendric LaMar winning so.
    Wale is not likeable and likeability is important in a popularity contest. Ijs?

  14. Just saw Wale at music premiere in Burbank. It looks like he needs to work on his entire presentation. He’s a nice looking guy but I side eye the folks he hangs with. He may need to change his circle of friends and be about his $$$. I think he’s smarter than he group he’s with and needs to elevate his standards so he’ll vibe higher and attract the success he’s looking for.

  15. Dear African man,the reason y’all hate American Blacks is simple,we are the Tribe Of Judah,The Tribe Of David,Tribe Of Jesus,stop with your bullshit,it’s jealousy,without blacks boycotting products in Africa,your asses would still be in Apartheid,Keep your asses in Africa if things are so bad with Native Blacks,and for your information Africans are not well liked by manyNations,including China! I don’t see many American blacks lining up to date your backward asses,stay in your lane Asshole!

      • You are right… sistas have told me I am too corny and I am not violent enough…please @anon help me be more thuggish and degenerate so i can attract a fine sista 🙂

  16. Wale you poor thing,showing your shame of being black to all the fools just like you,and I thought it was black women who showed their stupidity about being black,You that stupid man,do what Stupid black women do,bleach all the melanin out,like Michael Jackson,become a non Hu Man, Human means man of Color Fool.

  17. If that isn’t the dumbest ish I ever heard. Face it my guy your just not talented.
