Wale, Black Cobain, Logics and Luck-One


Roseland (map) Northwest
Sat., Nov. 26, 8 p.m. 2011 All Ages


Wale's latest release, Ambition, is a head-scratching collection of ringtone-ready R&B jams, shiny Kid Cudi-meets-Wiz Khalifa club cuts, and Escalade-ready South Beach bangers. It seems that by signing to Maybach Music Group, the label helmed by Rick Ross, Wale has made a concerted effort to move units first and foremost. The man's got to eat, so it's difficult to fault him for trying to reach a broader audience, although that doesn't make the juxtaposition of the two artistic selves any less surreal for fans of his past work. Hopefully this serves as an introduction to those unfamiliar with the DC native's back catalog, particularly the superbly inventive and intellectually challenging go-go mixtapes that put him on the map in the first place.
