Although quite a few rappers have engaged in Twitter feuds with both fans and their fellow artists thanks in part to the rise in social media, this week welcomed one of the most bizarre Twitter feuds yet.
Yesterday (July 7), Wale and mobile cellphone company, Sprint went back and forth on the popular social networking site.
The feud began when a Twitter user mentioned their switch from AT&T to Sprint. In response to Sprint congratulating the user on their move, Wale replied with “Hey do this mean I don’t owe talk from 2004.”
Sprint then suggested that Wale come into a Sprint store “for the Airing of Grievances.”
At one point in the back and forth, Sprint asked if Wale has Complex on speed dial. Back in 2013, Wale threatened staff at Complex over the phone after being omitted from the publication’s “50 Best Albums of 2013” list.
Wale responded to Sprint’s inquiry by stating that their rival, AT&T is who he has on speed dial.
In addition to his recent feud with Sprint, Wale has engaged in Twitter beefs with The Cool Kids rapper Sir Michael Rocks, fellow Maybach Music Group artist Meek Mill, author Kola Boof, and a handful of others.
