Waka Flocka Flame: Drake Set for ‘Round of Applause’ Video
Waka Flocka Flame has too many hits to only be on his second album. For ‘Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family,’ slated for a 2012 debut, the Atlanta-based rapper is following the same winning formula that’s gotten him this far.
“I might just keep giving it to my fans,” Waka tells The BommBox. “I have a big crowd of women so I’ma feed the women and attack the club hard again.”
He’s already on his way to doing just that with the positive reception of his lead single, ‘Round of Applause,’ which features Drake.
The 25-year-old reveals that he and the Toronto superstar are working on coordinating their schedules for filming the song’s visual. “We’re shooting the video for ‘Round of Applause’ in the next two to three weeks,” he shares. “In Atlanta or Toronto… We just gotta come together. That’s my boy. He on speed dial. I’m on speed dial. Anything he needs or I need we got it.”
Although he says he’ll be keeping the tracklistf for ‘Triple F Life’ under wraps for now, Waka recently announced at a show in Atlanta that rap newcomer Big K.R.I.T. will appear on the LP. The Mississippi rapper-producer will likely contribute a verse rather than a beat for the album.
“He got to rhyme on this one,” Waka states. “Big K.R.I.T. is like my new favorite artist. He’s A-1. I never met him but I reached out to him. He’s hard as hell. He needs light on him.”
With the majority of the production coming from Brick Squad’s in-house team, the 808 Mafia — consisting of Southside and Lex Luger — it seems ‘Triple F Life’ will just be a continuation of Waka’s success with a little help from his friends, both old and new.
Waka Flocka Flame’s sophomore effort, ‘Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family’ is set for an early 2012 release.
