After seeing the title I was expecting to hear Wale spit over that song from one of the Rocky films that plays in my head whenever I need to overcome any obstacle in life. The Rocky films taught me that working out to uplifting music will let me achieve anything.
I couldn’t have been more wrong about this. Here’s a great concept executed flawlessly. This is from More About Nothing. Sometimes mixtapes say more about an artist than albums do. They’re free from commercial pressures and the only limit is your own creativity. In my eyes, Wale is the mixtape king.
August 3rd can’t come soon enough.
EDIT: More new Wale, “Ambitious Girl” is more spoken word than rap. It doesn’t matter, Wale drops some truth bombs.
