     Wale has been one of my favorite rappers ever since I heard “The mixtape about nothing” which was one of the best most original mixtapes I’ve ever heard. Then despite whatever sales his first major album got, I thought it was good. However, Wale came with “More about Nothing” and really solidified my confidence in him. I was trying to push that mixtape on people I knew so hard, you would think I was getting paid for it(I do that for mixtapes I really love). So I was eagerly waiting to see what he does with his talent. Out if nowhere I heard about an MMG deal and was honestly kind of skeptical, he was a different type of rapper so I was convinced they would totally take everything away from him that earned him his fan base in the first place. Then came the “eleven one eleven” mixtape, and much to my surprise, Wale was still Wale and I felt good about the deal because they took wale and gave him the major label backing he needed to make a big mainstream impression. Then the album didn’t sound like such a bad idea. “Ambition” dropped in 2011 and it was every bit as good as it potentially should have been. It has enough features to enhance the experience but enough solo tracks to not lose focus on who this album is really about. Songs like “Chain music”, “Slight work” and “ambition” banged, and of course there are tracks for The ladies like ” lotus flower bomb”, “sabotage”, and “ambitious girl 2” to change the pace a little.
     From a man that values lyrical content and subject matter, Overall, I would say that “Ambition” has to be one of the best albums of 2011 and is definately worth buying for the sake of real hip hop. Buy it herehere
