Because Flocka is shunned upon for his image, music and what people feel he represents, that opening line from the record “Stereotype” was likely never heard. That said, regardless of who he is and what type of music he makes, the fact still remains that it was undoubtedly one of my favorite opening lines from any song in 2011. Mama Deb’s pride and joy used the song as the third installment of his “Streets Most Wanted” mini-series. Maybe he planned this, but then again maybe he didn’t (no Drake hook), Waka’s role in the visual in an orange jumpsuit fighting for his freedom is what many feel his lifestyle will lead him towards and ultimately promotes.
