While Drake and Meek Mill continue their beef, Waka Flocka Flame has decidedly used their "R.I.C.O." collaboration for a freestyle of his own. Because, like, I thought this was about rap? This is actually kinda refreshing from Waka, too -- he's been a little quiet as of late. Check out his "R.I.C.O." freestyle after the jump.
Waka Flocka Flame has finally dropped his new mixtape, Flockaveli 1.5, after a string of delays. The tape is the sequel to his watershed debut album Flockaveli and the prequel to his forthcoming album Flockaveli 2. The mixtape is currently available as a stream and as free download on Flocka's website. Stream the full project after the jump.
While Waka Flocka Flame attempts to figure out his current label situation, he's looking to keep fans satisfied with new music. Teaming up with Southside and Metro Boomin, Atlanta's most in demand production duo, Waka shares "Blue or Red" from his forthcoming Flockaveli 1.5 mixtape. Sure, it's not quite the ad nauseam promised Flockaveli 2 -- which is intermittently delayed -- but Flockaveli 1.5 is looking to hold us over until Waka gets all this label nonsense sorted. Hit the jump to hear "Blue or Red" from Waka Flocka Flame.
Waka Flocka Flame is the latest artist to join Pitchfork's "Over/Under" series, in which a litany of random topics are evaluated and declared if they're overrated or underrated.

Check it out after the jump.
Apparently Waka Flocka Flame released a song out with Good Charlotte. In case you don’t know who Good Charlotte is, they’re a pop-punk band from the early 2000s. They had songs like “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” go gold in 2002 – further revealing my old age. They’ve pretty much been on hiatus since 2011 and haven’t recorded a new album since 2010. How do I know this? Because I’ve used my Googles. Anyway, this song is for that new Pixels film coming out later this month. Now, the tandem of Waka Flocka, a rapper who is basically losing more and more of his street cred as I type this thing out, and a seemingly irrelevant early 2000s pop group have record a music video for this "Game On" track. Honestly, when I heard this track back last month I was baffled but now, hearing it over again -- along with an equally nauseating video -- I'm convinced this is the worst thing to happen to rap in 2015 thus far. But you be the judge. Check out "Game On" after the jump.
Uhhh, what? You're as confused as I am. Apparently Waka Flocka Flame has a song out with Good Charlotte. In case you don't know who Good Charlotte is, they're a pop-punk band from the early 2000s. They had songs like "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" go gold in 2002--further revealing my age. They've pretty much been on hiatus since 2011 and haven't recorded a new album since 2010. How do I know this? Because I've used my Googles. But for some strange reason they've reunited (I guess?) with one of Atlanta's long forgotten rappers, Waka Flocka (Flockaveli 2 should be out sometime soon, I think. All I know is I still love the first Flockaveli.) Also another baffling thing about this entire scheme here is that it's for the soundtrack of a movie called Pixels, which stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James (how exciting, right?) that's due out July 24th. "Game On" just reminds me how far we've traveled since Run-D.M.C. and Aerosmith. Listen to "Game On" after the jump... if you want.
Waka Flocka Flame’s “disgust” over the actions displayed in Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s (SAE) viral clip has prompted the rapper to cancel his April concert at the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Waka responding to SAE’s offensive behavior earlier this week via an Instagram post, he appeared in an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Tuesday to share more of his thoughts. “My initial reaction when I seen the video, I was more like hurt. More like disgusted, because I knew those kids, I performed for those kids,” the Atlanta rapper said in reference to a 2014 concert at the university. “They made me feel like a brother. Just to see what a person does behind closed doors was more disgusting than hurting. I wasn’t angry, I was just disgusted.” Check out the full interview between Waka Flocka Flame and CNN after the jump.
With 50 Shades of Grey now in theaters XXL decided to sit down with one Waka Flocka Flame and have a reading session. Apparently Waka didn't know what he was getting into when agreeing to read the controversial, sexually-laced novel by E. L. James. And we are grateful he didn't know because the results are hilarious! Check out both parts after the jump.
