“Fuck fame, fuck money, I just want to be legendary!” is what bleeds through Wale’s voice on his sophomore album, Ambition. When you first hear Wale’s poetic flow, you really feel it, he’s ambitious as hell, he wants to be legendary, and above all he wants you to love him. The D.C. emcee puts forth his best effort to date and his wordplay and metaphors and highly entertaining and complex, so pay close attention. Wale blends stories of the hustle to get on with the early tastes of success and the unfortunate side effects on relationships. When you hear his story, you’re gonna love him for his ambition.
DC of Nothing! Wale, the hometown hero! Don’t hold your applause at all, this is major for the District of Columbia. I was born, raised, and still reside in a suburb of D.C. and being a hip-hop fan all my life, I always felt like D.C. was on the outskirts of the rap world. But no more Wale just pushed 163k units his first week. Congrats Wale, make sure you go support him!
