    i Don't Know why He did Not Sell More Than Wack Meek Mill He is the Best from Mmg Rick Ross Garbage also Meek Mill Damnn What Happen To Rap WHere The Great Ones Aren't Selling The Best

  • Nico 3

    That BET cypher was dog shit lol I don't know what was more embarassing. Meek Mills rap, or Rick Ross flaunting his man tits. I'll reserve judgement on Wale until I hear the new album, but I don't think expectations are going to be that high anyway. He's been here before.

  • filthy1

    I'm a Wale supporter. I don't approve of the MMG move, but I thing he does his thing here pretty well. I think this will be a strong album.

  • Swordz

    Wale: Wassup Reporter: So they're calling you tax-write-off Wale'... can you comment?? Wale: Awww.... nawwww Reporter: Okay. well... moving on. Lets take some viewers tweets.... Here's one. Okay. Is it true you're actually a one the aliens in Men in Black ...?? Wale: Wow... is this for real?? Reporter: I'll choose another one. "Hey Wale, when are you gonna make music people actually care about?" (awkward silence) Wale: On the new record... dropping Nov 1st, I really go ... (a lawyer whispers in Wale ear) Wale: Dec 1st. Comming Dec 1st. Reporter: Right.... pushed back again?? (more muffled whispers) Wale: Yeah. Ya boi Wale dropping Dec 1st 2012 (more whispering) Wale: Maybe.

    standard album formula. betta show some personality wale check out this dude punching a girl in her pussy during a video shoot http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOpo8gKRbfs

  • dazeone

    This is cool his last cd was straight...he is just not one of the heavy hitters ..he could go gold with it

  • zachariah

    im really not sure about this, all ive heard so far is tracks for the ladies, ive not been impressed, i dont think itll be better than his debut or mixtapes. He switched his whole style up and I dont like it. Plus hes leaked pretty much the whole album already, WTF is up with that?

    Well at least he doesn't have a Trey Songz feature. That seems to be the norm with any rap album.

  • Bad Kid

    I believe in this fuckin album

  • racmati

    it's all over the place but sounds good. Don't have a real concept like J. Cole's album

  • melo007

    Wow this album isn't full of sellout commercial songs first 4 tracks are beast rest is sellout with a few good songs like track 9,11,12,13 and 14 he should've got john legend on it also i wish he got rid of slight work worst beat of the year!

  • Emmanuel Pressley

    that album cover looks so gay

  • anon

    Yo this shit is straight bangin, much better than his first album.

  • mr tibbs

    Its a thin line between commercial and hip-hop and Wale is a back and forth type of dude, its disappointing. When your mixtape is better than any of your LP's and this trash what audience are you trying to capture? Shit is garbage son, you sold your soul to Rick C.O. Ross and that freestylee you spit on BET cypher was garbage too!!! Lol

  • tylr

    thought that ambition was gonna be a huge sellout move, but those previews ain't too bad, its radio, but radio meets pre-self made wale, the beats sound crazy

  • Anonymous

    man wale gotta bangin album!!! ill pick this one up for sure its better than cole world 2

  • Frank

    Im excited bout dis lp yes sir!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sanada Yukihiro

    No Wale is dead, I hope he rap about hoes and money all the fucking time so all the fans leave him alone. FUCK YOU ASSHOLE BITCHES, WITH NO ASSHOLE!!

  • melo007

    Look man Wale is talented starting fresh with MMG his first cd was good but commercial cuz he was probably forced to. But this will be good be he can do better if he were to get real artists around him like when he first started he made songs with the roots and those seinfeld mixtapes were beast he is right not doing a style of rap that isn't suitable for him which is gangsta rap, when really he should be layed back with some 9th wonder beats and underground style.

  • Rival X Jordan

    where's the track with J.Cole?

  • SutterKane

    I cant see this dude selling shit, I mean why would any artist sign with Rick Ross, like its gonna get them somewhere?? Ross himself struggles for Gold everytime he drops, no disrespect to the guy but when you yourself barely hang on to a position, how you gonna guide other people to the promised land??? You cant and thats why Triple C's and that Self Made album combined have sold less then 100K....... MMG is a doomed enterprise, I feel sorry for Meek Millz, he shoulda looked into other options

    • Anonymous

      Self Made made more den 100k meathead

    • Anonymous

      He signed with Ross bc Ross gave him an opportunity to expand. I don't think Ross is struggling for gold, but to make music. I don't think MMG is a doomed enterprise as they keep expanding and dropping albums unlike a lot of hyped up artists who haven't even dropped shit like Jae Millz or Papoose. Regardless, they going to keep making music, getting that bread and living a lifestyle you only fathom when you go to bed everynightt in your mommas basement throwing darts at a poster of Rozay...

  • Brandon Hamm

    Glad to see he's going with less features on this one. Also a bit upset some of his earlier singles that I liked (Bad Girls Club, Chain Music) aren't making the cut, but maybe they'll be bonus tracks or something like that.

  • Hater

    Its not Wale hasn't got skills. It's like he doesn't know who his fan base is... He makes all these random songs not one of them really stands out - he leaves you confused and bored. I think the other Maybach Musik signees will sell more. Just My Opinion - let the accusations begin.

  • Devin Williams

    he need that lets chill joint wit Lloyd on here too

  • Anonymous

    obviously not correct its missing the songs with cudder and jcole

  • Anonymous

    i really don't think this tracklist is correct, wale has been quoted n other sources have confirmed tatts on my arm, bait n chain music would be on it. yesterday he released a snippet of a song with kid cudi that he said would be on the album and its been rumored for a while a song wit drake called destiny was gonna be on here too.

  • Matt Tompkins

    ambition = tats on my arm + extra verse? o.O

  • JOE6PACKNCGBOR336

  • Top Billion

    Wale turned me from a hater to a believer with his last mixtape "Eleven One Eleven Theory." Dude is talented and I'm buying this album.

  • Its Um

    Lady gaga killed that record and I don't mean in a positive way, I kno M.I.A. was originally was in, don't know why she got cut but it was a bad idea who did that.

    cant wait for this wale is my fav in the game right now nobody is spittin like him for real he is the def of an mc!! tru hiphop

  • Mike Meraz

    Wale disappointed me with his last album..haven't looked at him the same since lol. Had Gucci on his last Pop Debut..wonder if he's gonna have Wacka Flacka for this one. I just don't get excited for albums anymore. Only one I'm excited for is J.Cole's, even though he got Trey Songz on that bitch..we'll see

  • Random guy

    Good 2 see Ross pushing wale and the rest of maybach 2 albums in one year is a good push 4 wale and any other artist on the label.. Jay z still hasn't put out j.Cole or jay e yet... I hope Ross doesn't become like jay z or another birdman
