WALE
Ambition

Wale’s confidence was never shaken. After going through trials and tribulations that would have doomed the careers of lesser MCs, the Maybach Music Group rapper is prepping to drop his highly anticipated sophomore album, Ambition, on November 1. Proudly wearing his Washington, DC badge on his sleeve, along with his penchant for witty wordplay and crafty ... Read more in Amazon's Wale Store

I gotta give Wale his credit, he continues to improve with each album he puts out. His sophomore album Ambition went gold thanks to the hit single Lotus Flower Bomb featuring Miguel. Wale also had an impressive showing on MMG's Self Made Vol 2 album. The DC native kept busy by releasing the Folarin mixtape on Christmas Eve 2012. The first single off The Gifted, Bad featuring Tiara Thomas appeared on that mixtape and its also Wale's biggest hit to date. June has been a big month for Hip-Hop, Kanye West, J Cole and Mac Miller all released albums on the same day (June 18), so that leaves June 25th wide open for Wale's 3rd album.

The good thing about this album is that it sounds nothing like Wale's past efforts. On the albums opener The Curse of the Gifted, Wale raps about his gifts and curses over Sean C, LV's guitar heavy instrumental. Wale addresses how people believe everything they hear nowadays on the Cee Lo Green featured "Gullible", in the second verse he spits "TV killed the radio/ And then the internet slit the television throat/ But not before I gave birth to several episodes/ Our generation is cursed we got too many clones". "Rotation" is for the smokers, Wale does a little harmonizing on the hook over a spaced out beat with pounding drums, Wiz and 2 Chainz do their usual thing, yeah the verses are predictable but the song is still enjoyable.

The production on this album is more soulful, "Sunshine", "Heaven's Afternoon" and "Golden Salvation" (Jesus Piece) all have that soulful feel. Its only right that Wale has some joints for the ladies, Tired of Dreaming (featuring Ne-Yo & Rick Ross) could be a single. "Clappers"(featuring Nicki Minaj & Juicy J) should be a summer smash. It's a perfect club track, Nicki's verse was real short, maybe like 20 seconds.

This is an above average rap album. Not pretentious like some his contemporaries. It's just a guy who can rap with some top-notch beats, so if you are into that kind of thing, you should have this in your music library.

This album is simply amazing enough said...I can't come out of my zone from amazement. And to have Stokley on Background Vocals is an ingenious combination. I so Love Mint Condition...and Stokley's unique vocals add so much flavor. I am so stuck on this album and Proud of the Brother. Bear Witness To Greatness!

I've always been a fan of Wale, growing up and living in the DMV. Regardless of geographical preference, this album deserves 5 stars!

It is a skip free album. There is a little bit of everything on this album and the beats are nicely produced. Great complete album from Wale!

I really liked this album. I am not a big fan of rap music anymore, but I can get with Wale. I just wish it wasn't all the explicit lyrics, it was unnecessary because his flow is already good.
