Like it or not Wale is 1 of the brightest stars of 2011 and it's gonna stay that way 4 tha remainder of the year.  I haven't heard the album in it's entirety yet (but will) but from what I've heard it's WAAAAAY better than "Attention Deficit" (that album was the WORST music Wale ever put out in his career hands down).


Wale got hip becuz he wasn't gonna have The DMV behind him unless he did a Go-Go track and a Three 6 track.  That's how it is for everybody over here no matter who u r (with good reason, nothing negative).  "Bait" cranks like a muthafucka, "That Way" turnt out to be a very dangerous record for Hip Hop this year and "Lotus Flower Bomb" sounds pretty good.


At the End of tha day Wale didn't fail with this album.  If u don't like Wale or this album then it's You and not Wale or Us...  hate it or love it

I think Hip Hop albums lose that potential for "classicness" when songs like this are on it.

With that being said, I fuck with this song. ;D

Needs I download this, or should I pass?

Guest list & production looks highly unimpressive.

obviously  big seans debut isnt a classic album, ass and my last were fucking brutal.

jay just likes to point out something i said when it first dropped cuz i was excited, its kinda like when he calls a new drake song classic as soon as theres discussion about it

Wale was better on those Seinfeld mixtapes. For me he just doesn't seem to fit in at MMG lyrically and thematically. He's a good emcee, better than anyone else on MMG, but he just doesn't look right sat next to Pill, Meek Mill & Rozay. He's a different style altogether.

What is MMG lyrically and thematically ? Define it. That's like somebody saying a certain rapper has an eastcoast or a westcoast flow. Like what is that ? If you ask me Amibition, sound wise, sounds exactly like Attention Deficit. Same style of production, same vibe. It's not like MMG and Ross are all over the album. They are on 1 track and it's a gem. The only thing changed is Wale himself. He grew balls.

Don't forget that MMG also has Stalley.

You clearly hear a Ross-type influence all over this album.

You know how on the Self Made album every single track sounded EXACTLY THE SAME and all the verses and lyrics and themes were EXACTLY THE SAME for an entire hour? Yeah, thats MMG.

BTW, I've not heard this solo LP yet, I was more commenting on Wale's old sound and how I feel that suits him better than the sound and songs he was coming with on the Self Made LP.

Yeah trap music. But the sound of Ambition is nothing like the sound of Self Made.

"So why, when Wale appears to have the freedom he claimed to be searching for way back when, is he making these shallow, one-dimensional songs about this, that and the other thing? You might as well call Ambition, “The Album About Nothing, But For Real This Time You Guys.”"

LMFAO. So true.

You should listen to it yourself, with an open mind of course, before reading some review from an "I only listen to real hip-hop" persona.

Gave the album a listen twice today, was impressed with the consistency of it. Wale comes correct on the majority of the tracks and the beats complement his style, although a lot of the tracks are very similar. "Legendary", "Lotus Flower Bomb" and "Ambition" are my favorite tracks at the moment, "Ambition" is just crazy dope, sounds like some throwback street shit when Meek is spitting. I'm not a Ross fan but I've got to give him props for letting Wale do what to me sounds like a Wale album with MMG production values.

Fuck those "Maybach Music" tags are annoying!!!

I will listen to it, with an open mind also. As I said previously I loved Wale's first two mixtapes and the reason I'm basing my opinion on MMG Wale is based off his songs on the Self Made album...not this album. But I'll give it a listen. Hopefully it surprises me. Even though I don't think it suits him, I still think he's a talented emcee.

wale was the weak link on that mmg album, he sounds like a fucking clown trying to play tough guy, i skip every verse of his on it, seriously he is fucking awful on that. that said his first mixtapes were tight! he just lost direction as an artist, got a bigger ego, and tried to way to many things at one time. i will give this album a shot tho, he deserves a 2nd chance.

First time hearing Wale..not impressed. Maybe two tracks on hear that could possibly grow on me, but not countin on it...like what box5 said, no tracks worth a 5/5.

After a few more listens ad shits on this album. People are smoking crack to think otherwise.

Wale totally sacrificed his content on this album. It's just nonsense swag lyrics with no purpose. He took a huge step back as an artist and some of the songs are downright annoying.

I'm not surprised this album has a lower metecritic score then ad.

Meho needs to take Ross's cock from his ears, this is a huge step back artistically.
