After being silent since Friday (December 13), Wale finally addressed his taped phone-call with Complex magazine Associate Editor Insanul Ahmed. The Maybach Music Group verbally threatened the staff of the site and magazine, urging them to notify security in advance. The dispute stemmed from Wale’s The Gifted being omitted from the mag’s annual “Top 50 Albums Of The Year” list.

Speaking with HOT 97’s Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg yesterday (December 16), Wale explained why he feels wronged by Complex, and he believes it has to do with history involving friend-turned-foe-turned-friend, Kid Cudi. Also, Wale says that Jay Z, Q-Tip, and Roc Nation’s Ty-Ty all reached out following the breaking news.

Does Wale’s point/explanation change your opinion (one way or another) of the situation?
