WAKA Flocka Flame needs little introduction.
The rapper has been a leading face of Atlanta and Southern hip-hop thanks to hits like “No Hands,” “Hard in da Paint,” “Bricksquad,” “Round of Applause,” and more.
Waka recently added another cut to the pop trend of odes to various forms of employment and getting stuff done, trap anthem “Workin.’” It’s the first official single off his highly anticipated album, Flockaveli 2. Currently, he’s tied up in a legal mess with Atlantic Records over Flockaveli 2, an album that was due in 2013 but has yet to be released.
Despite asking fans to call Atlantic and demand the release and expressing his frustrations over social media, the delay hasn’t stopped Flocka from working on new things: check him out on the latest A$AP Rocky track, “Goldie Mack,” a quick, two-minute hit of old-school flavor.
Flocka’s said before that he doesn’t do hip-hop for the studio time: he’s a born entertainer and master of party anthems. He’s sure to blow the roof off Elan.
Ever the fascinatingly unpredictable artist, he’ll be on the Warped Tour this year and, inspired by his recent veganism, announced last week that he’ll be releasing his own vegan, marijuana-infused granola bars. 2016, y’all.
