After Kid┬áCudi claiming in a Complex interview that he doesn’t fuck with Wale musically, it seemed like this would probably never happen. Thankfully, Wale and Cudi put that all behind them. The two have headed in very different directions over the past couple of years.

Cudi has gone more experimental, steering clear of that straight up rap vibe and trying some new things, and Wale has… well, he joined Maybach Music. I don’t mean that in a bad way either–it just speaks volumes to the sound he’s chosen to go with. It’s a sound that might piss off a few of his early followers, but also promises some seriously big records. Hearing his MMG debut is going to be interesting.

Ambition comes November 1st. Pre-order it here, and listen to “Focused” below…
