Drama seems to be the constant in the crazy world of Waka Flocka. From presidential campaigns, musical ventures with Good Charlotte, to moonlighting as a weather repoerter, the world of Waka just keeps on spinning – and we’re all along for the ride.
In between a raft of adventures and bizarre public appearances, the rapper has been embroiled in drama with his record label, who recently announced their decision to not release the heavily anticipated Flockaevli 2; the follow up to the album which birthed a genre and established Waka as household name.
Waka, in true outlandish fashion, urged his followers to personally phone the label and demand that they release the project.

As a follow up “F you” to his label, Waka has now announced the Flockaveli 1.5 project, a free release slated to drop later on this week. It’s clear that Waka is keen to reward his fans for their ongoing support (even through Good Charlotte collabs) a situation that bares resemblance to Lil’ Wayne and his Sorry 4 the Wait mixtape, which dropped after Tha Carter IV was delayed repeatedly.
We’ve recently had two singles drop in the lead up to the album, both of which suggested a return to the style that has established Waka as a staple of the trap genre. Am 2 PM and Workin’ are fiery, in your face tracks that reek of flamboyance. With the latest blow in the release date for Flockaveli 2, we can only hope that Flockaveli 1.5 brings the goods and can tide us over until this beef with management subsides.
