At a time when street cred is no longer a vital commodity in hip-hop, Georgia’s Waka Flocka Flame is a throwback to the days when rap luminaries—like his idol, Tupac Shakur—were constant targets of gang violence and spent time in prison, so it’s no surprise that these same crime-ridden scenes turn up in his lyrics. But Flocka's got an ear, picking only the most over-the-top records to rhyme on, as heard on his recent sophomore release, Triple F Life, which features superstar guests (Drake, Nicki Minaj, Ludacris). A new disc, Flockaveli 2, is in the works, and the charmingly old-fashioned title of tonight's show suggests the possibility of some starry guests.
