Video: Wale feat. Jeremih & Rick Ross – That Way

| August 30, 2011 | 0 Comments

“That Way” gets A TON of run on Chicago radio, but the line about Harold’s didn’t go over so well last night in front of the crowd. Chicago doesn’t play when it comes to the Fried Chicken King. They fried Wale hard. Ha!

And apologies to anyone who won tickets that could not get in. The door got shut down around 9:30 and it was a wrap. I got you next time.

Kelly, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Common. We caught up with T to get his thoughts on seeing his head on the highway alongside other Chicago greats:

“As long as I’ve been puttin it down for this city, it feels good taking a ride on I-57 near 147th, and seeing this over the expressway. It’s a pleasure to have one of the top stations recognizing the hard work and the grind that I put into my music for this city.”
