Your man Wale attended last night’s Wizards/Raptors contest in D.C. and got into a verbal back and forth with the Raptor’s Rudy Gay during the game. Announcer Matt Devlin, who is apparently unfamiliar with Wale’s body of work, got wind of the exchange and took a couple of light shots at the Rapper on-air, asking if anybody on Twitter could tell him who he was before adding, “He’s not Drake, that’s for sure”. Wale, of course, took exception to these comments and approached Devlin in the announcer’s booth to introduce himself.
