The Kings of the Viral game strike again. This time with Wale’s visuals for Ambition featuring Meek Mill and Ricky Rozay. Check It Out!
I know Ambition has been out for 13 days already, but I really had to let it breathe a bit. This was a big album for Wale and I wanted to judge it the best I could. You know I had to bump it in the whip to get the real feel of the record. I went back to our old style with the grades for this review so comment if you like or dislike that. Overall I think Wale put out a quality project. Was it what we all were expecting? Hit the jump and find out.
After what seems like months of promotion from Wale and the rest of the MMG clan, Mr. Folarin has the #2 album in the country. The final tally came in today putting Wale’s Ambition just under 163k copies sold its first week on the market. Wale comes in the second spot only to Justin Bieber who released his Christmas album last Wednesday. 162,660 is the official number and its looking a hell of a lot better than Attention Deficit’s first week. Props and congrats to Wale and his entire team! #Ambition
Wale shut down the Highline Ballroom in NYC last night. At his show sponsored by Hot 97, Wale celebrated the release of his sophomore album Ambition and with him was Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ne-Yo and Miguel. The performance was insane and check out his bangers in the video up top. Hit the jump for some behind the scenes footage and more performance videos.

For the 4th edition of Wale’s web series showing the creation of his sophomore album, D.C.’s finest takes us behind the scenes to the making of his single “Lotus Flower Bomb” featuring Miguel. Ambition, 11.1.11.
Wale, Rick Ross, and the rest of MMG held an exclusive listening session for Wale’s new album Ambition last night at the Via Lounge in Atlanta. The MMG clan is in Atlanta filming the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards and there’s no better spot for a little hip hop party than the ATL. Check out some dope footage and get ready for Ambition 11.1.11!!!
With Ambition just over a month from dropping, XXL was able to get a sneak preview of DC’s finest sophomore album. Instead of bringing a lot of rap features for the record, like most young artists do, Wale is bringing the best of R&B to his music allowing his rapping to be the main “hip-hop” focus of the album. We learned that Wale has Ne-Yo on a track called “White Linen [Coolin]“, Lloyd on a track called “Sabotage”, and Miguel on “Lotus Flower Bomb”. The title track “Ambition” features his MMG boys Rozay and Meek Mill, but there are no other confirmed rap features besides that and Kid Cudi on a hook. The full story about Ambition will be in XXL’s November issue, MMG Cover! The album drops November 1st.
For episode 3 of Wale’s web series detailing the making of his sophomore album Ambition, Wale takes you to the studio where he’s taking #NODAYSOFF. Cop that Eleven One Eleven Theory and get ready for 11.1.11!!
Wale & the NUE Agency have announced Wale’s newest tour featuring his main man from BOA, Black Cobain. They’ll be hitting 40 cities across the country and tickets are on pre-sale now. Ambition drops on November 1st when the tour takes a little break, but Mr. Folarin will probably be in the NYC area around then. This should be a dope tour and this album should be insane (most definitely an upgrade from Wale’s freshman album). Check the jump for the full tour list.
Wale links up with fellow MMG artist Magazeen as well as his Board of Administration crew Black Cobain as well as Tre, to bring us a real chill reggae record. Enjoy
Wale has been stirring up a lot of buzz lately with his work on MMG’s Self Made, various other song releases that he murders, and his recent interview with Culture IV. As he said, here’s Episode 1 of his new Vlog series for the creation of his sophomore album Ambition. #NODAYSOFF
