Oh yeah, it’s still very much Scorpionseason and Drake’s latest studio album is all anyone is talking about this weekend. That includes Waka Flocka, who took some umbrage at the bars Jay-Z spit on his “Talk Up” feature on the album referencing XXXTentacion and George Zimmerman.
“I got your President tweeting, I won’t even meet with him/Y’all killed X, let Zimmerman live/Streets is done,” Jay-Z rapped, and it didn’t just turn Waka Flocka’s head as many found the line a little off its mark while seemingly blaming the streets for not doing more.
Waka Flocka wrote in a now-deleted tweet, “I respect everything bout Jay-Z but on that Drake record, those words were uncalled for J.”
He continued with, “You got way more coins/connections then us my g…you could’ve got that job done but blame the unguided youth.”
In another tweet, Waka said that XXXTentacion’s death was “pure hate and jealousy” which seems to be the general consensus considering the facts we all know so far.
If you thought Waka Flocka Flame’s fire for the game was dimming, think again.
Today Flockaveli comes through with a new visual for “Trap My Ass Off” where he finds himself counting stacks of paper before feds raid the trap house forcing him to dip on them in a drop top. Po-9 didn’t even give chase. Laziest law enforcement officials in the world here.
Chris Brown meanwhile gives up crooning for the women to take up tongue twisting raps with Joyner Lucas in his clip to “Stranger Things.” Strange indeed.
Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Rob $ tone featuring Malik Burgers, Kemba, and more.
[[tmz:video id=”0_3v92p96g”]] Waka Flocka Flame saved a fan from becoming roadkill by pulling her from oncoming traffic as she tried to snap a selfie with the rapper. Waka Flocka was down in New Orleans this week for Mardi Gras when fans mobbed him…
[[tmz:video id=”0_zp3atyr7″]] Waka Flocka Flame’s days as a poster child for veganism are as done as a rack of baby back ribs on Super Bowl Sunday — but that doesn’t mean he’ll be scarfing down a rib eye steak anytime soon. We got Waka at LAX…
“When it comes to talking about African Americans, I have no education with that. Period. I’m not even connected to that. That’s a system. That’s like connected to ‘Hey he’s a bad guy. Don’t hang with him.’ I’m not African American at all. My folks is not from Africa. A lot of people in this room’s folks not from Africa. Might be a couple. People just don’t understand. I ask my grandma, what’s your background? She like, ‘Red foot and Black toe Indian.’ Yeah, my mother and father, we’re 100 percent Indian.’ Ask my other grandma, we got Cherokee in us, European and Italian, a little Dominican. It’s crazy. Y’all looking at me funny like, ‘N*gga, I’m African. You’re not though. 80 percent of slaves was already here, was natives.
Sway: 80. Where you get that number from?
Waka: Sh* I just check the books.
Sway: Which book?
Waka: I got a whole laptop full of this sh*t. Just from me reading. It’s not a solid book, like ‘Hey only a thousand slaves came here.’ Nah n*gga you gotta read. You have to literally read. I’m so deep into it I don’t think about a slave ship. I think about what was a slave ship called? Jesus. What the f*ck was the slave ship called that Christopher Columbus was on?
Oh yes, there was plenty more struggle.
When one of the hosts asked about his identity, Waka said this.
Waka: “I’m other. I’m uneducated. So for me to sit here like a college professor, I’m wrong. I’m uneducated. I’m confused. But I’m damn sure not Black. You not going to call me Black. My grandmother is not Crayola. I’m connected to a tribe. I’m from a tribe, not a country. It’s a big difference. Different laws, different everything. Big difference.”
It’s clear that in the midst of this, someone, likely from Waka’s team taps Sway and probably told him to change the subject because homeboy was f*cking up.
But Waka circled back, “I don’t want to make n*ggas feel like I’m on some other sh*t because I’m saying I don’t want to connect with African Americans like I’m saying f*ck Black. It’s nothing like that. It’s that my eyelids is up. And when your eyelids is up, you read about everything you put in your mouth, you say out your mouth, you walk, you talk and conversate with. I don’t live for money everyday no more. I live for the truth.”
Someone, please send Waka Flock one of those DNA heritage tests before he confuses himself any further.
It’s been a hot minute since Waka Flocka Flame’s dropped any new material so we were pleasantly surprised that he finally came through with something new.
For his visuals to “Big Dawg” the Brick Squad rapper surrounds himself with a bevy of attractive young ladies that ultimately kept their distance from Tammy Rivera’s hubby throughout the video.
And after making some controversial comments about the Hip-Hop scene in New York a few years back, Trinidad James heads back to the city that never sleeps and shows some love for his clip to “Big Dawg.” We wonder how Mysonne will feel about this.
Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Yelawolf featuring Juicy J and Travis Barker, Audio Push, and more.
With “The Spot” movie and soundtrack being released on 10/17, Gucci Mane wastes no time and releases London On Da Track produced single “Paranoid” connecting him with Waka Flocka Flame & Chaz Gotti. Listen below!
Looking to get back on those Billboard charts he dominated in the early 00’s, Nelly debuts the visuals to his latest “Sexual Healing” infused cut, “The Fix.”
Sampling the classic Marvin Gaye record, the St. Lunatic is joined by R&B singer Jeremih and seems to have aspirations of fulfilling the single ladies man void left by Drake – thank Serena for that – by demonstrating that he’s just as suave, sophisticated, and seductive. He’s also like 10 years older so if anything he should be twice those things.
Flo Rida continues to pump out feel good records that are bound to end up in commercials, sporting events, and television sitcoms. His latest “My House” finds the Florida rapper enjoying the fruits of his labor via champagne sipping, pillow fights, and seafood served on the body of a naked female like Salmonella poisoning is a thing of the past.
Check out the rest of today’s releases which include work from Waka Flocka, Soulja Boy, The Other Guys, and more.
Waka Flocka had sheriff’s deputies come to the set of his new music video and it’s allegedly all because some neighbors didn’t like hearing the n-word blasting into their homes. We’re told Flocka and his crew were in Georgia…
Think what you will, but an argument can be made that Wacka Flocka and Rick Ross started the whole “dad bod” trend because these dudes don’t wiggle it just a little bit in their visuals, and still enjoy life. Shirts be damned!
Wacka continues his trendy ways on the kid-friendly, Good Charlotte assisted “Game On” off the soundtrack of Adam Sandler’s forthcoming film, Pixels, and lets adolescent kids know that you don’t need muscles to hold weight.
And don’t get caught sleeping on “Withdrawal” as it features Chicago rap vets Twista and Do or Die teaming up and spitting more tongue twisters than Freddy Kruger in Nightmare On Elm Street 3.
Check out the rest of today’s releases which include work from Freeway, Rejjie Snow, and more.
Waka Flocka Flame has just gotten a huge look after his new collaboration with Good Charlotte titled “Game On” has been designated to serve as the official theme song for the upcoming summer flick, Pixels: The Movie. The film starring Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Kevin James, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan, takes place in the present day but the antagonists are a several 80s video games falling from outer space to destroy the world. It’s actually not as silly as it sounds and the action-comedy scenes were in need of high octane soundtrack, which Flocka and the boys from Maryland bring to the table.
Keeping it line with similar rap/rock fusion records, the Brick Squad leader piles on the video game metaphors while Good Charlotte’s rock riffs excel the track’s adrenaline. Producer KoOoLkOjak also integrated audio effects from the film itself to give the backdrop an 8-bit topping.
Listen to “Game On” below.
And check out the official trailer for Pixels: The Movie, in theaters July 24.
While it may seem like most of today’s top talent is using this Flashback Friday to lay back and get their reminisce on, some up and coming acts are taking advantage of the available air time to showcase what they can bring to the current soundscape.
Tory Lanez & Shlohmo continue to appease the Swavenation by demonstrating that living life in the fast lane can in fact be captured in slow motion in “Acting Like.” And on the R&B side, Natasha Mosley risks alienating her female fan base—or empowering it—by letting her male audience know that she’s capable of one-upping their current girl in every category that matters to them on “Anything.”
Check out the rest of today’s latest heat, and one from Waka Flocka that we missed earlier this week, below.
Rapper and Presidential Candidate Waka Flocka Flame released the music video for his current single “Turn Up Godz,” featuring his Vice Presidential Candidate DJ Whoo Kid. The single is currently off their The Turn Up Godz Tour mixtape released weeks ago.
Shot live on location at Waka Flocka Flame’s Spring Break performance in South Padre Island, Texas, Director Jesse C captures the intensity of his concerts. Waka, together with DJ Whoo Kid, and his fans create an unforgettable experience together, and it’s evident that Waka Flocka Flame is indeed the “Turn Up God.” Hopefully this visual will be a great sub cursor to your Memorial Day Festivities!
