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. In this latest episode, Waka Flocka Flame discusses how he feels about Kendrick Lamar, whether or not he likes emojis, Hillary Clinton and the presidential race, and much more. Check it out after the jump.
I was worried for a second there. Waka Flocka Flame -- the once unassuming weed carrer (or shooter) in Gucci Mane's 1017 Brick Squad camp -- released his debut album Flockaveli five years ago and has been dropping turds since. He was supposed to come out with the second installment, like, ten times already. But, sadly, it's constantly pushed back. (Maybe with good reason?) Everything that was going to be on Flockaveli 2 was scrapped and now we're getting this new track called "Workin'" which sounds like classic Waka. Basically that means I am happily satisfied. The end. Listen to "Workin'" by Waka Flocka after the jump.
This track is too turnt up, hence the title. Waka Flocka is consistently building a rep as a rapper who's truly on the forefront of the sound-merger between Hip-Hop and EDM. In the past few months, we have seem him collaborate with producers who have made a name for themselves in this space such as Steve Aoki and Girl Talk. Now, Waka has linked up with Flosstradamus for a track that will find its home on the 22 Jump Street soundtrack.
in case you consume rap in music form, or have things like a job or an education, you may have missed the EPIC TWITTER RANT gucci mane used to light up the night skies. it was a phenomenal display of poetry. a comma-heavy and error-prone testimony. a cry for help. a laugh -- out loud. no one knows what caused the designer-named rapper (street alias 'guwop') to go in on his peers, but something seemed amiss from the start. rather than parse the details, we boiled this down to its bone and gristle for the uninformed. enjoy!
You can catch this on Flocka's upcoming DuFlocka Rant Halftime Show mixtape.
Nothing to see here, just Waka responding to people on YouTube.
