For those of you that are not hip, this song was leaked last year before Wale’s mix tape “more about nothing” dropped. I loved it and i came across it last year after i heard “Contemplate” another great track about love lost. This video by far is number one in my book of fave Wale videos, my fave up until like 30 minutes ago as “My Sweetie”. They taped at Howard University and showed narrative drawings of the monument.The concept behind the video is very similar to that of 500 days of summer, mainly the narrator introducing Wale and his cold-hearted but gorgeouos boo in the video as “This is a story of boy meets girl. Then the early formations of there views on love, Wale being more compassionate and the girl not sticking around to much to fall in love. It is an ode to a good movie done the right way, the various city scape’s around the D.C. area. He even took a few seconds to pull out a “Ambitious Girl”(more about nothing mixtape skit) moment in the video. It was an ode to love, D.C. and the many Redskins (he was sporting the sweatshirt in the classroom). It is nice to see him representing the D.M.V. nation and keeping his poetic rhymes alive.Between this video and his new alliance with Mr. Rick Ross, 2011 is definitely looking good for the Hometown Homie.
