We all know Waka Flocka Flame goes hard in the paint, but who knew that he considers airports "the paint"? The Brick Squad Monopoly rapper was arrested this morning when TSA in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport found a loaded handgun inside of his luggage.
Hear that? That's the sound of hip-hop's loudest MC crafting a sequel to his most aggressive project to date. Yes, though it's been reported that Waka Flocka Flame has been hard at work on Flockaveli 2 for quite some time, today brings new hope for that project in the form of artwork.
The most gratifying events in music are the moments where you can literally hear the construction in the artist’s mind, the building onto the promise of greatness. While not a guarantee, Days Before Rodeo provides the listener with the glimpses of the incredible, long-ranging capabilities of Travi$ Scott.
With Waka Flocka Flame’s newest album set to come out later this year, the Atlanta rapper has released a mixtape to hold us all over in the meantime. The tape, Re-Up features all-star collabs and on-point production.

Debra ATney has quite the track record. She has managed artists such as Nicki Minaj, French Montana, and Gucci Mane, as well as her son, Waka Flocka. While she has had issues with her artists in the past, Debra continues to have kind words for the artists she's worked with.
As reported by Complex, Waka Flocka is branching out into philanthropy, television, film and music genres other than rap. He discussed his current projects during an interview at the recent Garden of Dreams talent show in New York City, and had some surprising things to say.
