From the looks of this trailer it appears that Waka’s Round of Applause video will be a mini-movie with Drake playing the villian, perhaps.

Check out the official behind-the-scenes of Waka Flocka Flame’s “Round of Applause.” The video, shot in two parts in Los Angeles and Atlanta, was directed by Mr. Boomtown and features Basketball Wives LA cast member Draya.
French Montana, Waka Flocka and Prodigy of Mobb Deep Team-up for a grimy video for their mixtape version of the Mobb Deep Classic “Hell on Earth”.
“Hell on Earth 2k” off Montana and Waka Flocka Flames’s mixtape Lock-out. For more info on Lockout peep the Fader.
Update:This was submitted before Waka Flocka’s Good Friend and BSM member Slim Dunkin was murdered in Atlanta yesterday. Our Condolences go out to Brick Squad and Slim Dunkin’s friends and family.
The homie Prince Kennedy shot me this MP3 of superproducer Zaytoven talking to the Beat 94.5 in Charlotte, North Carolina. You know Zaytoven that produced Gucci Mane & Young Jeezy’s “So Icey?!!..Yeah man.
Anyway, Zaytoven explained working him and Gucci working V-Nasty, and what caught his attention about her. He basically said she isn’t a basic bitch without saying basic bitch. She says bitch so I can?
He also announced Gucci Mane, and Waka Flocka have a reality show called Back to the Basement in the works. Gucci Mane also has a movie coming out called Birds of Feather.
So good readers of Donewaiting download the MP3 and see what Zaytoven is talking about.
Waka Flocka Flame had quite a year last year. Last time Donewaiting talked to him in October 2010, he just dropped a classic with Flockavelli. We tipped Waka off that punk rock and metal kids mess with him.
Waka is gearing up for a huge 2012. He’s prepping the Triple F Life album, which is slated for an early 2012 release with guests Drake, Tyler, the Creator, BSM and possibly both DMX, Nas and plenty more. I talked him on the phone yesterday, and he discussed the meaning of each of the F’s. I also asked him if would do it to Sarah Palin. Unfortunately, he did not know who Palin was. Well, please read this interview.
Shout out to Prince Kennedy for hooking it up.
ME: My name is Wes Flexner. I am with Donewaiting.com. How are you doing today?
Waka Flocka Flame: I am good. I am on the tourbus.
Well, I have been celebrating Waka Flocka, and Odd Future like they were the next coming of Dipset.
Well, it happened “Wolf Gang. Brick Squad.” Waka Flocka joined Odd Future on stage in Atlanta last night.
“That was so cool.”
Above is Waka’s song Karma. After the jump a worse angle with footage of Keep it Real and Bitch Suck Dick.
Last year, I interviewed Waka Flocka Flame. I told him that punk rock and metal kids love his music because its rowdy-as fuck.
And I asked him if he fucks with punk or metal
This year Odd Future blew the fuck up because of the same sentiment. I think Tyler’s record Goblin is damn near 100,000 on an indie(bout it like Master P in ’96 indeed). Mellowhype’s reissue on Fat Possum of Blackendedwhite broke the Billboard Top 100. Breakin’ the Rules is cool again.
So I am really stoked that Interview Magazine had Waka Flocka Flame interview Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator.
In this excerpt Waka Flocka asks Tyler, the Creator if he considers himself punk rock or metal:
FLAME: So would you describe Odd Future as a hip-hop heavy-metal group? Or a punk-rock rap group? How do you describe what you and your crew do?
TYLER: I don’t like either description. I don’t like being put in a box. I just make music, you know? When you’re put in a box, people have a set mind-state of what your music could sound like before they even look into it. Like, if no one ever heard of me, but I’m hip-hop-metal-rock, then they’re already gonna have an expectation of what the music will sound like. Then, when they go in and finally listen to it, it might be different from what they thought, and they could automatically hate it because they already had expectations.
FLAME: I dig it. You gotta create your own genre.
FLAME: So what inspires y’all then?
TYLER: When I’m on stage, it’s, like, Ian Curtis and Sid Vicious—like, real punk rock and shit. I’m like a big 10-year-old when I’m on stage. I just go up there and do whatever I think is cool at the moment. And then, when it comes to rappin’, I like watchin’ a lot of cartoons and movies and shit. Usually, when I’m rappin’, I’m creating a big story or a concept song that sounds like a movie to me.
Read the whole Interview here.
Read my review of a Waka Flocka Flame show in the Other Paper too while your are at it!
First Tupac was Back…Now Maybach Music turning bitch n’s to ghosts.
Rick Ross and Pill team-up on this joint off of Maybach Music Group’s Self Made Vol. 1 with a cameo by Waka Flocka Flame.
Waka Flocka Flame and DJ Holiday took the stage at Maybach Music’s Wale’s show to rock their hit “No Hands” in Atlanta on Friday after performing “Hard In the Paint” with/from the crowd.
Roscoe Dash, who is also on “No Hands”, wasn’t there so the audience rocked his verse.
Peep the Gucci Mane creeping in the back.
Thanks to iluvlola for sending me this.
Awhile back I interviewed Waka Flocka Flame for this here website. I told him that alot of hardcore kids I know listen to him and not much much else. When I said that, I had no idea he would be getting all Earth Crisis on us. Maybe Thought Catalog was onto something when they used veganism to describe the Atlanta rapper in a review.
Yesterday, Waka Flocka told Hip Hopdx that he would join Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Pink, and other celebrities in PETA’s “Ink Not Mink” campaign February 22nd.
Waka Flocka’s argument for animal rights? Waka said, “Animals should be treated the same as you would a kid. Would you want someone just to walk up and skin your kid? Hell no!”
While, I like the idea of Waka channeling his violent ways Animal Liberation Front style, honestly this isn’t that extreme.
Athletes likeA’mare Stoudemire, and Chad Ochocinco have posed nude to protest fur for PETA in the past.(nh)
While being a vegan myself, I am stoked one of my favorite rappers is taking stand for animal rights without having Erykah Badu putting a finger in his butthole. Something tells me Waka isn’t vegan.
But if Waka is, or decides to embrace a cruelty free diet, I suggest eating at Soul Veg in Atlanta after a long day of bustin at em, and going hard in the paint. Things could get really interesting from there.
