By now, you've probably heard what Raptors announcer Matt Devlin said about Wale during a Raptors/Wizards game on Tuesday night. If not, Devlin referred to Wale as a "local rapper" and said that he's "not Drake, that's for sure" after the MMG rapper was shown exchanging words with Rudy Gay during the game. It prompted Wale to take a shot at Devlin on Twitter and to approach him in the broadcast booth later in the game. You can read all about it over here.
But, as it turns out, Devlin didn't mean any harm when he alluded to the fact that he doesn't know who Wale is. A rep for the Raptors tried to explain the situation late yesterday when the team issued an apology to TMZ and said that they hope that Devlin and Wale can work together sometime in the future in order to smooth things over.
"[Matt's comments were] meant to be making fun of himself for not knowing who Wale is," the rep said. "It's a shtick that Matt and our analyst do consistently to poke fun at the fact neither is pop culture savvy. [Matt] feels badly that Wale may have felt he was making fun of him. We have reached out to Wale's management group to see if we can turn this into a positive. We'd like to have him join Matt on the broadcast when we return to Washington at the end of March."
So far, no word on whether or not Wale will agree to do that. But, it's safe to say that this "beef" is officially cooked.
