Last week, Waka Flocka Flame previewed ‘Flockaveli 1.5’ with releasing “Blue or Red,” a booming street anthem.
As has been reported by several sources, Waka Flocka Flame has made multiple demands to be relieved of his contract with Atlantic Records. He has gone as far as releasing the label’s phone number over his social media channels and asking his fans to call the label and demand his release. Not one to sit idly by, Waka rewards fans that have been patiently waiting for a new album, after significant delays, with 12 brand new records. The artist is referring to this album as ‘Flockaveli 1.5’ hinting to his fans that ‘Flockaveli 2’ is indeed still forthcoming, pending resolution to his dispute with Atlantic Records.
Brick Bronson, President of 36BRICKHOUSE says:
“Waka Flocka Flame and 36BRICKHOUSE are constantly progressing forward. The fans have been waiting for new music from Waka Flocka Flame long enough and we’re going to give it to them.”
And the General, Waka Flocka Flame says to his fans:
“Flockaveli 2 is coming. At every show, my fans ask me for new music so I’m not going to have them wait any longer. Despite whatever issues I have with my label, you’re getting what is basically a whole album as a free download. Introducing Flockaveli 1.5. This is how I say thank you to my fans who’ve been patient and supportive all this time.”
Waka has been touring non-stop for the past few years, most recently with DJ Whoo Kid on the party tour of the year, the Turn Up Godz Tour.
Earlier this year, Waka Flocka Flame delivered “Game On,” featuring Good Charlotte; the theme song for the feature film, Pixels. The record was used by the ABC network during the 2015 NBA Finals.
