Last fall, rapper Waka Flocka released his debut album entitled, Flockavelli. The disc debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200. A little over a year later, Gucci Mane’s protegé is working on his sophomore album, entitled Triple F Life, and calling the shots for his imprint, Brick Squad Monopoly. Billboard recently caught up with this ATL native. Below are some excerpts:
Flocka on his inspiration for his upcoming album.
“Friends, Fans and Family.” “You see how evil people act for money [so] I’m doing this for friends, fans, and family,” he said. “It felt like a rushed project. I’m going to do it first quarter (2012) because I need to put my all into it,” Waka Flocka continued on his recently pushed back album, “Triple F Life.” “I felt like I was trying to please the label and not the people that really listen to the music.”
Waka on having Drake on the album’s lead single, “Round Of Applause.”
“I said, ‘Who do I need on the song to get some ladies into it?’ Let me call Drake! I met him through the engineer, we put that track together, and that was it.”
Flocka also hinted that he’s trying to get DMX on his new album.
“I’m trying to put a song together with DMX; he needs to get back on the scene!”
Flocka also plans on being the #1 artist next year.
“I’m gonna be the No. 1 artist of the year. That’s not a prediction, that’s a fact!” he proclaimed.
