The best way for me to describe Waka Flocka Flame, much less this CD, is to compare it to Red Bull: Its chock full of energy and a lot of people like it, but its ultimately unsatisfying and too much of it is bad for you.

Let me just say first off that despite my obvious biased, I gave this CD a listen. I really did, all 17 tracks. At the risk of being called a Waka hater, I was really not feeling this CD, and that is an understatement of epic proportions. Music is an art form and there is no right way to express yourself through it, and despite how I feel about this dude's music in general, I have been hearing people talking about this CD a lot for the last week or so, and I decided to see if everyone else was seeing something I'm not. For the life of me, I cant figure out this guy's appeal.

Waka suffers from what I call Same Song Syndrome (SSS); a very common disease among many mainstream rappers where they will make one catchy song, then replicate that song several times but alter the beat and lyrics slightly and call it an album. I will concede however, that the production on this album is pretty decent in the sense that it doesn't sound like something a kid made in his room with Frooty Loops basic. Money was spent to make this dude sound good. The sound clearly draws heavily from the short lived Crunk movement, as well as the general syth sound heard in most mainstream southern rap, giving it that pumped up fight music feel. Unfortunately, thats about as high a praise as I can really give Flockaveli, because as much as people want to try and downplay the importance of lyrics in hip hop, they do make a difference.

Waka keeps it very simple: his sub genre of Hip Hop is Gangsta Rap, therefore he raps about doing a bunch of "gangsta" stuff.

I admit I am the last one to think an entire Waka Flocka Flame album would entertain me. After all, honestly he's not a good rapper. When I first heard him he could barely rhyme two bars so in that sense he is improving (by now most have seen the hilarious Shawt Bus Shawty comedy spoof on youtube). I remember on his track (not featured) Luv Dem Gun Sounds he barely rhymed at all but the track was so undeniably hard, so gangsta, so hood that it could not be ignored. Besides that song I didn't really pay much attention to him. He was always that guy in the background in Gucci Mane viral videos...you know...the weed carrier. Anyway, he then hit me in the head with O Let's Do It, another underground sensation. The song got heavy play here in Atlanta and soon thereafter Rick Ross and Diddy (The Bugati Boyz) were added to the remix and the rest as they say is history.

However, I was still not convinced. He then dropped Hard in Tha Paint, and again the track was banging. I began thinking that Waka Flocka Flame might be legit, and plus he was filling a much needed role in hip hop today. With all the singing, autotune, R&B features, and Drake harmonizing (not a bad thing) somebody was needed to balance it out and bring the gangsta back to the limelight and Waka Flocka has done just that. Make no mistake about it...there's no singing in the hooks, no harmonizing, no boo lovin and begging, no cruising songs, no love songs, nothing about how many zips or bricks he just sold....just killing, threats, kicking doors, robbing, gun sounds, fighting, and shooting. But it's REFRESHING if that makes sense.

My breaking point was when No Hands dropped and it was another banger.

When I first heard the name Wacka Flacka Flame I thought it was a joke. He had one small radio hit with "O Lets Do It" and I thought well that's it. Then over the summer he came strong with "Hard In The Paint". Still didn't know it was him. By time "No Hands" was everywhere on the radio, I didn't know if it was his single or Wale's (I hoped it was Wale's track) When I heard his album title was "Flockaveli" I thought "Hell Nah". Who is this young cat with no lyrics using the great Tupac's name to get more publicity? So of course it made me even more skeptical.

The first thing I noticed was how much the beats sound like Rick Ross's B.M.F. Then I found out that this album was produced by young producer Lex Luger (who also produced Ross's B.M.F & MC Hammer). His work is very impressive. The hardcore, bass thumping beats on "Bustin' At `Em" & the summer street banger "Hard In The Paint" remind me of a young Lil' Jon. His beats lay the perfect background, too bad Flame is a horrible lyricist. I haven't heard a rapper say his name so much in a song since Mike Jones. His rhymes are cartoonish. It doesn't take a musical genius to rhyme "Flame" & "Mane". (You can see the huge lyrical gap between Flame and Wale on "No Hands") The song titles tell you everything you need to know about the song. "G Check", "Bang" & "Smoke, Drank", lets you know there is nothing intelligent being said in these songs.

Not since Young Jeezy's "Thug Motivation 101", has a true gangsta, hardcore rap album came out. Theres no sing-along hooks, no sappy love songs & no auto tune. Just pure adrenaline rush beats that will keep your head bobbing for days. But you can't live off beats alone. You have to say something and that's where Flame fails miserably. For the younger generation who don't care about lyrics this will be their album of the year. But for the generation who grew up listening to the real Makaveli, this album will annoy you by the tenth track.
