Mixtape: DuFlocka Rant 2
Producer: Lex Luger
Waka's newest tape isn't a reinvention, and there are some cool moments, but by far the most interesting flashes come from particular collaborators, whether on the production end or new guests. Much as Kevin Gates' appearance on Pusha T's Wrath of Caine mixtape looks like it could propel Gates to the next level of national attention, here's hoping that Young Thug's high-profile collaboration with Waka and Gucci does the same. He's definitely one of the most charismatic new rappers to emerge in Atlanta's odd new nexus of rapper weirdos, with a good balance between songcraft / hooks and general eccentricity.
