F*ck Outta Here: A Review About Nothing By: Eric Blair
Disclaimer: Apologies to @Wale for my views and opinions regarding his new album #Ambition. The following views and opinions are all based on fact therefore this is a Review About the Truth.
Who is this man? I don’t know Wale as an artist anymore. This album reminds me of the scenario when your big brother, whom you’re so proud of, goes away to college and the next summer he returns home as a douche bag. Wale has changed drastically for the worst since he joined Maybach Music Group. This is an atrocious follow-up to Attention Deficit and More About Nothing. The lyrical content on this album is very crude and moronic; I had never heard this man use the word “bitch” this much in his exHip-Hop career. Now he has graduated to be a mainstream rapper, or his self-proclaimed title “Maybach Poet.” His voice and flow has changed from exciting to lackluster. The lyrical delivery on this album sounds like a “Rick Ross lite” flow; even the production sounds like a second-hand Rick Ross production. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few tracks on this album where the production is good but that’s only the production. Songs like: Focus, Slight Work, Chain Music, and maybe Lotus Flower Bomb are solid enough. Example: Chain Music is very catchy and if this was a quality album Chain Music would have been the worst song on the track list but since this is a bad album Chain Music ALMOST a good song, in comparison to the others. I do not enjoy hearing the Maybach Music Group sound stamp all over this album. “YES! We have heard of Maybach Music before! Shut up, I don’t care for hearing about this group once more!” I do not understand Wale as an artist or this album; how could he go from a song called Dairy to a track titled Illest Bitch? Is it me or is there an oxymoron sound accompanying Wale these days? A career is about growth not back tracking, this isn’t monopoly, its chess. Overall I rate this album a D. It lacks creativity, growth, solid production, and the interesting lyricism that Wale’s fans are used to. Overall, Ambition contradicts Wale’s sound before this album. I am highly disappointed in him as an artist, I expected so much more from him. I’ve wasted thirty plus minutes on this misuse of sounds called Ambition. I do not know where he can go from here but what I do know is I will not be listening to him anytime soon. This album and his name make my ears sad. Damn Illuminati can make anyone sell out these days. Those Illuminatists are great at their jobs because they have done a great job turning out an artist who could have been a great MC.
You don’t have to take my words for it; give Wale’s Ambition a listen for yourself. Be your own critic.
