Rappers are constantly deifying themselves, some more specifically than others. Lil B is the Based God, Smoke DZA, the Kushed God, Gucci Mane, the Trap God, Eminem, the "Rap God", and Kanye West is just "a God".
Two days ago Waka Flocka hit us with a new freestyle "Blatlanta" over the "Chi-Raq" beat. It served as a leak off his upcoming I Can't Rap Vol. 1 mixtape, which he's been dropping a lot of freestyles for lately. The latest leak off I Can't Rap Vol.
Gucci Mane was really building something special with Brick Squad. While the crew has since parted ways to a certain extent, it's clear that everyone involved has the ability to do great things. Young Scooter, who just dropped his new mixtape, 80s Baby, yesterday, is one of them.
Waka Flocka has been coming hard with the freestyles over the last few weeks. Ironically, the rappers tightened bars are for an upcoming mixtape called I Can't Rap Vol. 1.On his latest track, he's taken on a track from Yo Gotti's underrated Memphis rap opus, "I Am".
Waka picked an ironic title for his upcoming mixtape, I Can't Rap Vol. 1, especially when his last few freestyles have revealed an undeniable technical ability naysayers previously refused to acknowledge.
Shawty Lo was an original member of D4L, whose debut album is not only a classic of the Atlanta rap scene, but has also gone on to inform the sounds of other regions, most notably, the snap element of DJ Mustard's 'ratchet' movement.
The remixes of Snootie Wild's "Yayo" have only just begun. Following Snootie's big remix of the single which continues to grow in popularity, Waka Flocka has decided to hop on the track to detail his own experiences with the white powder.
Waka Flocka has been splitting his time between rap and EDM pretty evenly over the last little while. With both a proper sequel to Flockavelli, and an electronic project called Flockavelli Psychotics in the works, it makes a lot of sense.
It's been a long minute since we heard from Gillie Da Kid. The Philly native hasn't popped up since last year when he dropped a "Tryna Get Me (Remix)." Gillie makes his return today with a new leak, bringing along Waka Flocka Flame, Freeway and Kief Brown for the ride.
Waka Flocka is getting back into the swing of things, and has been releasing music weekly. Last week we received a remix of Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What," which followed a remix of Kanye West's "Blood On The Leaves."
As well selected as the cast of rappers were on the "Turn Down For What" remix, one name was notably absent.
Waka Flocka, who is easily one of the best in the game at filling both the rapper and hypeman role, has naturally made his way into the EDM game.
