Not long after a harrowing shooting took place at his recording studio, Waka Flocka Flame has returned to the game with some new music. Today marks the arrival of the sixth installment of Waka's Salute Me Or Shoot Me, a title that has since developed macabre undertones. Yet Waka has lost little of his luster on this go-around, a fact emphasized by the project's opening cut "I Remember." Taking to a hard-hitting instrumental from Lex Luger, Waka Flocka dives right into it, exuding menace and drowning listeners in energetic ad-libs.
The vibe continues across, as Waka Flocka lines his project with a variety of different bangers. Loudeine-assisted "Long Live The King" finds Waka flowing over a minimalist 808-based production, while the sitar-driven "Lock Rags" adds a welcome tonality to the oft-intense tape. With features from Comethazine, La4ss, Loudeine, and Lotto Savage, Salute Me Or Shoot Me 6 is a reminder that Waka Flocka's boundless energy has yet to tire. In fact, it may very well mark his finest hour in a minute.
