In the latest behind-the-scenes look at the making of his album Ambition, Wale makes some bold statements that kind of make sense, given the title of his album. Amidst the anniversaries of Jay-Z's The Blueprint and 2Pac's death, Mr. Folarin name drops both legendary artists as he shares some of his own goals. Check out his five most ambitious quotes below, and watch the whole video above.
1. "You tellin' me that I can't say my album gonna be better than Reasonable Doubt? Why? Is that blasphemous? Is that the Bible? Did God handwrite it?"
2. "Why can't I say that I want four number one records with this album?"
3. "Why can't I... rap on a 2pac beat? People bodied me before, even saying that I wanted to do that. Why? Pac would've done it."
4. "I'm gonna make a classic album. I'm gonna put a picture of a fuckin' Grammy on the cover of that bitch if I'm allowed to!"
5. "Jay-Z's my favorite rapper, but why can't I aspire to be better than him?"
