Here’s the title track off of Wale’s upcoming album, Ambition. Produced by T-Minus – and you can tell because you can hear blatant influence from “She Will” in there. Nice song IMO. **UPDATED with CDQ/Dirty:
He talks to Pitchfork Pitchfork: A lot of rappers are moving away from big record deals and, as recently as last month, it seemed like you didn’t want to sign with a major, either. What changed your mind? A$AP Rocky: About three million dollars. [Other rappers who don't sign] are smart, but I feel like […]

Producer Johnny Juliano snatches up Kid Cudi’s “‘09 Freestyle” and gives it some original production to create “Dream On.” Crazy how production values can change the entire vibe of a song. Listen below, courtesy of our friends at GMAD:
