This dude is a beast. One that I feels really feels about the message he's putting out in his songs and the lyrics he's putting down.

Hit me up for a link on Ambition.

Meh... used to like him but he changed. Doing songs with DJ Khaled and Rick Ross is a big no to me.

Man I say you give it a shot anyways. I wouldn't just judge his new stuff based on that.

Yeah I will. His fanbase was stronger and he tried to appeal the mainstream fans and failed miserably. Hopefully he goes back to that old Wale Hip-Hop heads like. I'll give it a chance.

Fo sho man. Wale isn't the kind of guy that will be successful in the mainstream he's WAY to dope of a rapper for that (sadly). Attention Deficit was on another level IMO.

Yeah he lost a lot of fans because of that, but I give you guys props for not giving up on his music like I did. He can definitely be a really good MC when he wants to

Finally.

I'm gonna give his album a listen soon, but Wale is by far my favorite rapper right now. Word play for daaaaaays. Barry Sanders? Are you kidding me? :laughing:

And the way I'm ballin, gimme a Grammy or Danny OB
Standing OV, let these bit**es follow me
And I just give them D, give them D like they is out the league
Hasheem Thabeet and various other peoples


Nittany Lion, my Penn State it, ni**as recite it
I'm Michael Jordan major, you ni**as Harold Miner


My effort is contagious, so check this BOA *hit
With this recording I'm as sick as Jordan before Game 6
Jazz talkin and I bet I pick and roll with your bi**h
You got some paper for me? Hit me on the Hornacek


Them [expletive]*s talking, they like man he official
Man, you Olowokandi I'm just being Pacific
I'm just bein' prolific, right now don't need no Mrs
I got a rack of Trojans, knowing my Lane Kiffin


Interscope feeling like Charlotte
When they traded Kobe you know?
But I let it go, Rozay finna re-up
He got himself a Kobe and they stuck with Vlade Divac

I don't get the hate on Attention Deficit, it was a solid all-around album. Had a song Beautiful Bliss that made me a J. Cole fan for life, Contemplate is hella dope, Shades, Prescription. He wanted to add that track you posted Green and Ice & Rain but his label didn't let him. Don't know how his sound is going to be on MMG, can't wait to listen to Ambition later today.
