Waka Flocka Flame

An early signee to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Brick Squad Records, Atlanta MC Waka Flocka Flame became the face of the city’s trap-rap scene after releasing a series of steely singalongs like “Hard in da Paint” and “O Let’s Do It.” Those tracks ended up on 2010’s Flockaveli, where razor-edged Lex Luger beats gave weight to Flocka’s fuck-the-world-let’s-party attitude. A 2012 successor, Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family, was less memorable, though a series of more promising mixtapes followed. Word is that the long-awaited Flockaveli 2 will finally hit the streets this June. DJs SnellVillain and Ben G join Flocka at the Georgia Theatre.
