Waka Flocka. How the P&P team missed thee. At this point, if you’re clicking a link to a Waka mixtape, you probably know the drill: the typically ridiculous name, the bass heavy riot starters, the general sense of reckless abandon. If you’re a fan, Flocka’s perfected the science of his mixtapes for you, foregoing the more radio friendly sounds that dot his commercial albums for something darker, bigger, and closer to what made him a divisive phenomenon in the first place. Highlights include a well-used Three 6 Mafia sample on the ominous “Activist,” a predictably unhinged Young Thug collaboration on “Come Around,” and the unexpectedly soulful and introspective “Smile.” It’s core audience service that points to a potential new direction.
