Ambition, Wale

The pairing of the former Mark Ronson protégé with Rick Ross's Mayback Music Group made many of us scratch our heads. But on Ambition, they proved their odd pairing somehow, transforming Wale into a flossy ladies' man. The switch-up is sure to anger some of the D.C. rapper's long-time fans, but the combination of his nimble rhyme patterns and MMG's patented cinematically lush production hits an undeniable sweet spot.
