If you have been on the internet or watched TV within the last year you have at least heard the name "Waka Flocka Flame" if not been saturated and nearly annoyed to death with frat boys ad-libbing "POW POW POW" and "FLOCKA" at every bar/club/opportunity. Most hip hop heads hate Mr. Flocka Flame, I for one love me some ignorant ass rap, so I'm all about it. For those who have heard the name but know nothing of him here is a brief breakdown; Flocka's mom(!) is/was Gucci Mane and Nicki Minaj's manager. Flocka quickly grew through the ranks and worked his way all the way up to the top i.e. being Gucci's designated weed carrier and hype man. About a year ago the song "O Let's Do it" blew the fuck up online and remixes featured Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Diddy among others. Not too bad for someone who's sole purpose was to get arrested in place of Brick Squad's main man(e), Gucci.

After what seems like thousands of official and unofficial mixtapes and remixes Waka Flocka's debut Flockaveli is released. Although its nice not to have a DJ screaming in the background, most of these tracks have already seen the light of day. At least 5 songs had videos out way before a full length was planned. Flockaveli doesn't give a Flocka fan much in the way of new material, but if you only peripherally know his music, then this album has all his hits packed into one. Don't listen to this if you are looking for "intellectual" or "conscious" hip hop (
