    Wale, I hope you frequent this site, because I'm gonna tell you something that you need to hear.

    The reason people don't like you, and magazines don't show you love, and women don't want you, is because all of them can see very clearly that YOU don't like YOU. You started your major label career by including a song on your debut album about your color issues, being ashamed as a child of your dark skin because light-skinned girls didn't want you. I bought that album, because I'm from Maryland, and because I'm Nigerian. But the day I heard that song, that's the day I lost respect for you. There's nothing attractive about self-pity, but that's what we always get from you.

    You do interviews, and you're whining about something or another. You go to Verizon Center, and you're fighting somebody about something they said about you. You're constantly telling the world about someone close to you who has died. That's not what people want to hear from entertainers. You're always looking for sympathy for your sad existence. You're never happy about anything. People who buy music have their own shit to deal with without celebrities trying to bring them down, too. People who buy music have jobs they go to. They would love to have your life of making songs and hanging out with Jerry Seinfeld. But you're still not happy.

    They say you have a bad attitude, so you tell a sad story to offer an excuse for the bad attitude. Now the most recent story is that you elected to self-medicate to soothe your pain. How does any of this help to promote your brand?

    You need to decide whether this life is for you. You're not the first person who didn't get the props he felt he deserved.

    Maybe it's not your fault. maybe it's the world in which we currently live. You have a platform to shoot off your mouth whenever you feel like it. Maybe that's the problem.
