Wale – Ambition (8.5/10)
Is this Wale’s newest album, or is this one of Kanye’s early albums? Yes, it’s reminiscent of Ye’s early greatness. Fun, not over-the-top self indulgent, and one hell of a great delivery.
Wale’s still got his feet on the ground, but lyrically reaching for the stars. He’s an all-star lyricist, with beats for weeks. The first half of the album reaffirmed my belief in his skills. Second half wasn’t as strong as the first, as the energy and track quality faltered quite a bit.
Is Wale the top of Maybach Music? If so, Ambition helps his cause in the quest for the top.
