...aaaand the link

Because I'm an idiot.


On our newest High Fidelity segment, White Girl From Pittsburgh, That's Pretty Legit, we were talking about Wale...a DC rapper who just produced the greatest Seinfeld-themed mixtape ever, The Mixtape About Nothing.

His debut album is set to release March '09. Apparently it's going to feature production credits from just about everyone who is any good and producing hip-hop...including Kanye, 9th Wonder, Mark Ronson, Just Blaze and JUSTICE!

This remix of Justice's D.A.N.C.E. is from his 2006 mixtape, 100 Miles & Running
