Earlier this summer, Wale dropped off his Summer On Sunset mixtape where he enlisted Tha Dogg Pound aka Kurupt and Daz Dillinger for assistance on the track "Gangsta Boogie." It appears Kurupt and Daz fucked with the song so heavily, that they've decided to repurpose it for their own upcoming album, and they're pushing it even further with a new visual treatment.

Rick Ross Responds To Meek Mill/Wale Beef On Snapchat
Meek Mill was embroiled in some light beef with Wale yesterday, after he heard the comments Wale made during his Breakfast Club interview on the subject of Meek's beef with Drake. Meek's twitter fingers got the best of him, as he took to Instagram to write a long-winded post about Wale and claim he's not MMG. Wale gave a rather light-hearted response on twitter, and we're expecting this will fizzle out rather quickly, as Meek has already deleted the incriminating IG post. Nonetheless, when Rick Ross caught wind of the back-and-forth, he responded via Snapchat.

The video takes us to a remote island location, where Wale spits romance at a beautiful woman as they dance on the beach and enjoy champagne at their oceanfront mansion -- it doesn't look like Rozay's Rosé, either, which is probably a classy move on Wale's part.
