It didn't take long for Wale's music video featuring Lady GaGa to surface online. You'll recall that the hip-hopper was in the Hub a few weeks back to shoot "Chillin'," a tune from his forthcoming debut CD "Attention Deficit." Director Chris Robinson shot Lady GaGa at Eastern Minerals in Chelsea, and later lensed Wale at the cool Harvard Square store Concepts. The vid, which rap star Kanye West posted on his blog, shows Wale chillin' in the downstairs lounge at Concepts. Store manager Deon Point likes the look of the vid. "It was a hectic day. They filmed from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.," he told us yesterday. "We did it as a favor to Chris, who we've had a relationship for awhile." (Robinson has directed videos for Alicia Keys, Young Jeezy, T.I., and Beyonce.) Interested in seeing Wale's "Chillin'"? Here it is, yo.
