Wale ft. Meek Mill & Rick Ross - Ambition

DJBooth_logo2x

The motivation behind Wale throwing in his lot with Maybach Music Group, and the much-discussed stylistic shift that accompanied his move, can be summed up in one word: Ambition. On the title track off his sophomore album, newly selected for promotion as a single/music video, the DMV heavyweight reflects on the effort he's put in to come this far, and forecasts a future filled with big bucks and adulation. First to flow over T-Minus' pensive synth production, MMG colleague Meek Mill reminisces about his days as a dope boy on the front, and label boss Ricky Rozay chronicles his own journey out the trap in an unusually down-to-earth middle 16. Mr. Folarin brings up the rear, offering his “well-wishes to the competition” before outlining precisely why he's destined to leave them in the dust. How about it: are you, as Wale prophesizes on the chorus, “lovin' [him] for his Ambition?” If so—and if you haven't already copped the set—you'll undoubtedly find more to appreciate on Wale's second full-length, available in stores and online as of November 2011.
