Without fail, saying the name “Waka Flocka Flame” brings a devilish grin to my face. It’s simplistic, ignorant yet brilliant, similar to how I wish I had started calling myself Flavor Flav before William Drayton grabbed it. If you’ve yet to understand the connection & appeal of the likes of Waka & OJ, seeing may be believing and the video is typical of the adrenaline-stirring chaos they inspire.
“They gon’ lay yo ass out, rocked to sleep like a baby, Hit Squad, shawty, in the hood we got dem babiesss…”
Dreds flailing. Bodies rocking. Elbows knucking in unison as if thugs-in-arms. It’s energy. Knuckle up.
