Wale dropped the highly-anticipated single “Focused” off of his upcoming album, Ambition today. “Focused” features Kid Cudi, who always produces a great hook. Unfortunately, Wale did not let Cudder jump on the track and spit any bars, but the song is good nonetheless.

Common needs no introduction. From the South Side of Chicago, a guy that has truly stuck to his roots throughout his career, he’s in my top 5 all time. This song was recorded a while ago (10 years apparently, it just never made a Common album) and was finally given some life on DJ Eves I Know What You Did Last Mixtape, mixtape. Produced by Kanye West (Yeah, now you know it’s old since he rarely produces now), the two pair up for another great song. Common’s story telling is unmatched, and he has a nice flow on this one. Take a listen below, and click the link for the download of the tagless (no annoying DJ screaming over every bar) version.
