Wale and Kid Cudi end their feud, as the two MCs collab on a new single for Wale's Ambition.

Last year in September Wale and Kid Cudi were embroiled in a beef that left the two close friends estranged for months. In Febuary of this year, the two squashed the beef and to show us that they are back, the Cudder jumps on the new single (“Focused”) for Wale’s upcoming album Ambition. Cudi is on the chorus, while Wale lays down the raps on this mid-tempo tune. I think a lot of people especially Cudi fans, would have enjoyed a rap verse by Cudder, but just the fact that these old friends and talented artists are collaborating makes the song worthwhile.
