Of the 20 songs on Drake’s Views, “Hype” was one of the few with the energy you’d want to play before a night out. But, like the rest of the album, “Hype” had low-key moments that kept it from quite becoming a go-to turn up cut.
Fortunately, Waka Flocka Flame is here to flip the song into something worthy of its title with an insane remix. Er—”flockmix.” Excuse me. Lines like “it’s a wrap like Christmas gifts” run up next to half-threatening gems like “Punch him in his face, feed him chicken soup” that only Waka Flocka could pull off. So many quotables. This bangs.
