Shit, if the title track intro here doesn’t move you, get the fuck up out this post right now. Ok… Now the rest of us know this is trap rap at its best. Even the laziest thug must get motivated to tunes like the intense “Win,” the sinister “Flexin” and the aforementioned second Fab collab, “Rollin“. New CTE recruit, Gangsta Gibbs also […]
In celebration of a million Twitter followers and to further wet the public’s appetite for Ambition, Wale returned to his mixtape roots.

They push their skills to the limit on “25TH Hour” and emit the same urgency with Meek Mill for “Rush Hour”. Their crown jewel though, comes from the Lupe Fiasco-assisted “Zombieland”.

For a mixtape entitled Cold Day In Hell, Freddie Gibbs, knows how to make some smoking hot tracks. Off top, Gibbs attempts to boost the crime rate with “Rob Me A Nigga” and “187 Proof”. He unveils his art of storytelling on “My Homeboys Girlfriend” and then salutes his comrades on “My Dawgz”. How’s that for juxtaposition?
