To be sure: I'm not begging for a whole album, or even a mixtape, of Waka Flocka rapping as Braniac Ludacris, flowing over Illmatic beats and whatnot. Waka's from Queens, remember. He's traditionalist by lineage, if not at heart. "You rappers couldn't make it with a Jay Z feature," he sneers, and that's real shit.
