Prepare to get your FLEX on, because Waka Flocka Flame is back with a new mixtape!! From Roaches to Rollies goes so hard in the paint you might as well call him the rap-game Jackson Pollock. The mixtape’s 15 tracks span the whole spectrum of intensity, from HARD (“7 Days of the Week”) to HARDER (“Alpo”) to “OH DID HE JUST DISS GUCCI MANE? YES HE DID!” (“Ice Cream Cone”). That diss track will inevitably draw a ton of traffic, given Gucci’s recent fulfillment of his long-anticipated transformation into “that guy,” and hearing the Brick Squad overlord go psychoanalytical in his digs is an experience that’s as awesome as you’d expect: “All in your feelings, all in your emotions,” hypothesizes Waka Flocka Freud, “Just for attention/ you cause all of this commotion.” By contrast, Flocka has got it all under control: spitting his rager-ready rhymes over beats that shudder and sweat like the participants of a middle school dance gone terribly, terribly wrong. Fun stuff!
