A-Trak made an official hip-hop mixtape for Festivus

There aren’t any Festivus carols, but Frank Costanza’s celebration of anger and aluminum poles now has an official soundtrack thanks to Seinfeld-obsessed rapper Wale, producer A-Trak and their friends Pusha T, Chance The Rapper, A$AP Ferg, and Ab-Soul.

Your favourite celebration of seasonal TV reruns – sorry Chrismukkah – is the inspiration for the 11-track mixtape, which offers a preview of Wale’s upcoming The Album About Nothing.

It’s not the first time Wale has turned to Seinfeld for inspiration; in 2008 he dropped The Mixtape About Nothing and Jerry appeared on the Outro About Nothing on his most recent album The Gifted in 2013. The pair also teamed up for a cover story on Complex earlier this year.
