Southern rap superstar Waka Flocka Flame has recently released what is suspected to be the first single off of his upcoming third solo album "Flockaveli 2." The new song is called “Slippin’” and it gives fans what they have come to expect from the 1017 Brick Squad signee. Flocka does not disappoint on the track as he delivers another club banger that includes his signature adlibs and rowdy vocals over the beat’s heavy bass.
The track’s production was handled by none other than super-producer Mike WiLL Made It. Mike WiLL has produced numerous hits in recent memory, including Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance” and his own song “23,” which features both Miley Cyrus and Juicy J.
On the song’s hook, Flocka issues a stern warning. He repeatedly says, “Don’t let me catch you slippin’.” During the first verse, he questions some of the fake gangsters in the music industry with lyrics like, “You a question mark gangsta -- DJ Clue.” At the beginning of the second verse, he raps, “I got shooters in the D, I ain’t talking ‘bout the Pistons.” In typical Waka Flocka fashion, he does not hesitate to let listeners know that he is not somebody you want to play around with.
Flocka specializes in a widely popular genre of rap music known as trap music. This Southern-based genre of hip-hop has been vital in catapulting the down-South rap scene, also known endearingly as the “Dirty South,” into the national spotlight and helping it garner worldwide attention. Currently, trap music can be commonly heard all over the radio, in the clubs, and at parties.
DJs love to have Flocka and other similar-sounding rap artists on their playlists for party gigs. If anyone was ever asked to list the names of possible rappers that should be included in the trap-music Mount Rushmore, Flocka’s name would undoubtedly make the list every time. Other rappers that could surely be placed on that list are big names such as 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy.
Waka Flocka is a Georgia native who rose to fame with the help of his estranged mentor Gucci Mane and his mom, whom is his manager. "Flockaveli 2," the sequel to 2010’s "Flockaveli," does not currently have a set release date but is scheduled to come out later this year.
