We’re barely a month into 2013, but Waka Flocka Flame isn’t wasting any time. The rowdy rap star revealed to MTV News that not only is he planning to release his third LP, Flockaveli Part 2, this year, the album is already finished.
“I want to drop now,” Flocka said, knowing that his wishful thinking won’t come to reality just yet. “I’ma put a mixtape out February 5, DuFlocka Rant Part 2, and from there I might drop summer, spring. I don’t know. My album done, it’s done. I mastered it and everything. It’s done.”
For his next release, Waka plans to mix the raw sound that defined the original Flockaveli with a touch of the crossover appeal that drove last year’s Triple F Life.
“I just got out the studio, Timbaland; walked in; I ain’t have to call for that. That’s something I was gonna grab,” he said about the decorated hitmaker. “Everybody I wanted to get on a song basically walked in the studio.”
Flocka also revealed that he’s enlisted Swizz Beatz and Wyclef Jean as well. “I got a record with Wyclef, they can look out for that. It’s called ’Abu Dhabi.’ It’s crazy,” he boasted.
Waka is ready to exhibit a bit of artistic growth and he knows that may rub some fans the wrong way. To his critics, he references a lyric from Jay-Z’s 2009 single “On to the Next One.” “Like Jay-Z said, ’You like my last album? Go buy it.’ If you want that old sound, go buy my last album, straight up,” he urged. “This third one, I’m gonna mix both of them together. It’s Flockaveli Part 2, 2013. That’s just how I’m standing.”
