Overall

I have been following Wales career since Nike boots, and I must say this album does not disappoint. This album is not filled with features from various artist, this is Wale. The only other rappers on this CD are Big Sean, Rick Ross, and Meek Mill, and they're only on two songs. The rest of the songs are all Wale rapping and the featured artist is singing the hook. This album is well mixed and the audio is balanced through out. This is a great rap album

The Good
* "Chain Music" - This is a great song. If you have a system this song literally "Bangs"!

* "Focused ft. Kid Cudi" - This song really grew on me after listening to it a couple of times. My favorite line off this song is "F*** rap I get geechi off a haiku"

* "Slight Work" - The highest energy track on the album is tough not to nod your head to. Big Sean puts in a good performance by his standards, and the old Young Gunz "Can't Stop, Won't Stop (remix)" sample gives it a somewhat nostalgic early 2000's feel.

* "Ambition ft. Meek Mills and Rick Ross" - This song has an epic feel to it. It also features two of Wales fellow MMG members, Rick Ross Boss) and Meek Mill.

* Wale drops some crazy bars on this album. This album definitely has a high play back value because of this. Each time you replay this album you will hear something you didn't hear before, the bars on this album are CRAZY.

The Bad

* I would of preferred more "bangers" a lot of the tracks are pretty mellow, but this is a commercial album. Great album nonetheless.

* Too many of the songs are the same way when it comes to women and relationships and he talks too much about his weed habits.

Wale's first album, 2009's Attention Deficit, went highly unnoticed - including by myself. It garnered positive reviews, but like the majority, I slept on the album. Two years after its bow, Wale goes from relatively underground rapper to having a #2 debut on the Billboard 200 charts, just behind Justin Bieber's Under the Mistletoe. Go figure. Regardless, Ambition, Wale's sophomore LP is more primed for success and finds the standout MC on fire. Signed to standout rapper Rick Ross's Maybach Music label, Ambition is a strong set that retains Wale's more intellectual side as well as sets him up for relative commercial success. For the most part, producers do a good job balancing the MC, which makes Ambition a strong rap effort for 2K11.

"Don't Hold Your Applause" is a strong opener, though one feels like it is a `warm-up' for what is to materialize. The production work is solid and Wale's flow is remarkable. "Don't Hold Your Applause" lacks a certain flashiness or slickness - kind of like J. Cole's opener "Dollar and a Dream III," but at just over three minutes in length, there is little to ultimate quibble about. "Double M Genius" sort of falls into the same boat - quality rhymes and production, but somewhat conservative and non-overt. Wale manages to slip in some random, yet well devised punchlines, which makes "Double M Genius" as consistent as "Don't Hold Your Applause." Similarly, "Miami Nights" has the same marked consistency, using a similar formula to the first two cuts. A bit more assertive, one senses that Wale is about to `breakthrough' big time.

I can honestly say that I have always like Wale, I can also say that it was a random post on Solange Knowles twitter account that brought him and his music into my life, so I can say honestly I am not a hip hop head at all. I have found that the string of rappers that are out now don't talk about anything at all. They talk about weed,women,money, and bling. Nothing that I can, or want to relate to. This album has completely satisfied my need for those very rappers to say something. He has the great party songs like Miami Nights and Slight Work but he goes into the things that make him who he is like Ambition and No Days Off. He doesn't dissapoint for the ladies (and I knew he wouldnt) with the songs That Way featuring Jeremih and Lotus Flower Bomb. I think that leaving his first record label, who thought putting him with GAGA was gonna make him a success, was the best thing he could have done. He went to MMG with Rick Ross and got the attention and promotion he deserved. He went on a multiple city tour that really proved to the world that he didn't need anything to be handed to him, he was willing to work for it. So congratulations Mr.Folarin, You delivered a great album and I promise I won't hold the applause.

I would like to say thanks to Mr. Wale for keeping his music real to the urban sound you would commonly find in Rap. The album artwork is very crisp, clean and the text is very legible, so I'm giving this production 5 stars for sound recording, artwork and all media associated with this CD.
Another very good production I found was the Thorough Album By Stryk, rapper and R&B Vocalist.
