Here are two new videos from Wale.  His “Pretty Girls” video is noticeably weak considering Gucci wasn’t their to show off his diamonds and spit the best verse of the song.  Hot Spitta did however make a cameo.  “My Sweetie” is a much more interesting video, and was actually directed by fellow DC wordsmith Tabi Bonney.  Also you can check Wale on 106th & Park below all that.

    Fly Gypsy is set to release another burner from its upcoming project, FG*XL:remixtape. In its take on Wale's “Pretty Girls,” Washington, D.C.’s duo builds on the playfulness of the original track while introducing a smart message that many women will appreciate – that they are more than just mindless “pretty girls.”

    Leaving little doubt that smart is sexy in the Fly Gypsy world, Kom does not mince words: “She was a dumb diva, had to get up and leave her/ I can get to score easy but get bored easier.” Rhyming about a “foreign shorty” whose body “could have made America’s most wanted list,” Kom laments, “She held my attention like it had a handle on it / But couldn’t hold a conversation if it had a handle on it/ Shorty, you look good, but can you read a book good?”

    Not only is the song's new message pointer, but its sound is also more club-friendly, courtesy of additional production from Alexei. “I had a hard time deciding on the additional touches because the track is already so rich,” says Alexei. “So, I put on my DJ hat and asked myself ‘What would make this track translate better in a club.’ The answer came immediately – some subtle yet sticky synth lines to give the track more drive. So I did my magic and now challenge anyone to not get up and dance when they hear this.”
