Wale Album Inspired by ‘Seinfeld’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Chart

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

The latest record from hip-hop star Wale debuted at the top of the weekly Billboard 200 chart this week. Another fun fact: It's narrated by Jerry Seinfeld.

You read that right. "The Album About Nothing" is inspired by the legendary NBC sitcom. The eponymous comedian doesn't do any rapping, unfortunately — but he serves as the album's "narrator," offering commentary for each track, Wale told The Associated Press.

This isn't the first time Wale has channeled "Seinfeld" in his music. The rapper's 2008 mixtape "Mixtape About Nothing" and 2010’s "More About Nothing" are filled with references to the beloved series.

"Seinfeld" celebrated it's 25th anniversary last year. It aired for nine seasons between 1989 to 1998.
