MMG rapper and Seinfeld enthusiast Wale is up to nothing again. Jerry Seinfeld recently revealed that the two are collaborating on a project, presumably the rapper’s forthcoming Album About Nothing.

Without revealing too many details about the project, comedian Jerry Seinfeld confirmed that he and Wale are working on a secret project.

“Wale called me and came to my show and hung out a little bit,” he explained of the collaboration. “He wanted me to do something with him and I didn’t understand it but he did. I like the guy, I dug the guy. I listened to his music and I liked his music. So I said, I’ll do it even though I didn’t know what I was going to do.”

Seinfeld was further swayed by the reaction of his wife, Jessica Seinfeld, when he mentioned the possible collaboration with Wale.

“I said to my wife, I’m doing this thing with this guy Wale. She said ‘Wale is my favorit hip-hop artist anywhere. I have everything.  [But] somehow she missed everything that had to do with me. I said, Just type Wale and me and see what comes up. Of course, a whole bunch of stuff comes up. It was unbelievable. We are living together and she’s into him, and he’s into me. I had no idea.” [Check out the video here]

While the union may seem world’s apart to anyone unfamiliar with Wale’s music, the DC-based rapper is an avowed fan of Seinfeld. His early mixtapes, A Mixtape About Nothing and More About Nothing were nods to the groundbreaking sitcom.

Stay tuned for more about the Album About Nothing.
