Video: Wale – No Days Off Vlog (Album Release Week)
I’ll take this time out to salute Wale one time. I’ve been a fan since I heard “Nike Boots” and I’m one of the few that believe Attention Deficit was a really good body of work. This past week, Ambition debuted at #2 with 162,000 copies sold, second only to the Bieb’s. Hat’s off good brother, you deserve it. Behind the scenes of Cory Gunz and Meek Mill’s upcoming video below.
Video: Wale – Mass Appeal Freestyle + Meek Mill ft. Rick Ross – Work (Power)
Exactly a week after dropping his sophomore album, Ralph Folarin releases this freestyle to Gang Starr’s “Mass Appeal” from way back. With 54% of retailers having reported, Wale has sold 110k copies of Ambition. His first effort, AttentionDeficit sold 25k first week. “Court seats to court seats, that’s progress.”
Video: Wale Album Release Party at Highline Ballroom
Wale held his Ambition release party last night in NYC at the Highline Ballroom. His guests included, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ne-Yo and Miguel. From the crowd reaction, I would say the streets are feelin Meek Mill…
Nothing inspires a man more than a beautiful woman. More than any drug, dollar amount or work of art; beautiful women have served as a muse for some of the greatest music ever made. As a fan of everything music… I salute all you weekend dress wearing, red bottom walking, girls across the world.

The Weekly Cinco: Cory Mo, DJ Premier, Pusha T, Wale & Young Chris
Shout to Gibson for holding it down last week with a good remix edition. There really wasn’t much this week that I could say I really liked besides the Nas joint with Dj Premier (now that was some good music). We did get the title track from Wale’s album dropping in a few days, some Pac Div and more. Hope you enjoy; let’s go…
1. Young Chris ft. Fred the God Son & Vado – Triple Threat
Was pretty impressed by all three of these artists, all of which went IN on this track. Sounds like a modified sample of the “Nas is coming” in the back round. Good beat could hear plenty layers of different sounds, produced very well. Overall good track. Got to love tracks that don’t need a Hook..
2. Cory Mo ft. Talib Kweli, Killer Mike & Mitchelle ‘I – Getting to the Money
The intro got me alone, hit play an i definitely didn’t expect this. For some reason was expecting something more relaxed an chill, this is the opposite. Good track really makes you wanna “Get to the Money”. Hearing Talib spit is always refreshing, recommend for sure..
3. Pusha T – What Dreams Are Made Of
Another dope track from a very dope artist, I wont hold my breath for the album to come out. However until then he’s at least dropping dope tracks like this one. Push T, no need to say much more. Listen to this Track..
4. Wale ft. Rick Ross, Meek Mill – Ambition
MMG Boys got a hold of another good beat/ track with this one. The hardest working group in hip hop as of late, releases the title track for Wale’s new album “Ambition”. Has a good hook, Meek did his thing on the track and Ross is well just another Ross verse huuhhhhhh. Good luck to Wale on his album, one of the dopest doing it..
5. DJ Premier ft. Nas & The Berklee Symphony Orchestra – Regeneration
Just an incredible fusion of music, something only the great Nasir Jones could do maybe a Jay-Z maybe. As my boy DG said in the blog Lil Wayne needs to get the I Am Music tattoo removed asap! This is real music, throw on some headphones an appreciate it.. Nas, Prem and a Symphony enough said!!
BONUS: Pac Div ft. Ashor Roth – Useless
Honestly I’ve been sleeping on the boys Div too long, that long nap as officially ended. Along with Ashor they murder this track…
WHHOOOAAAA!!!!!! Listen to the track an you’ll get it…
Well hope you enjoyed this weeks edition. I need to get back to my SportsCenter. I’m still trying to figure out how the Rangers managed lose last night; come on man!!! Hope ya’ll have a good Halloween, till next week…
Wale finally drops off his track Slight Work, featuring Big Sean and produced by Diplo, that he has been talking about on Twitter for a few weeks. This will appear on his new album Ambition that will be in store 11/1/11
