Rappers I’ve Been Listening to Lately

Lil’ Wayne

Buy on Amazon.com

Description – Seems to utilize non-sequiturs in a way that maybe makes it seems as though they aren’t non-sequiturs. Seems convincing in almost ever aspects of his persona. Uses similes and metaphors often. Delivers ‘punch lines’ well. Seems well versed in pop culture. Seems to have a productive/effective work ethic and a Promethazine-Codeine syrup addiction. Signature ‘noises’ include [lighter ‘flick’/inhale], “young moolah baby,” and [high-pitched laughter]. Notable physical features include long dreadlocks, myriad tattoos (‘I am music’ on face / ‘ESPN’ on arm), and a silver, glittery ‘grill.’

Albums/Songs I Currently Like – “Me and My Drank (featuring Short Dawg)” / No Ceilings / “Hawaii 5.0” / Tha Carter II

    'Seems not very creative; however, seems to make up for it in “hardness.”'

  • tracy morgan

    doesn't seem like it needs four pages since they're basically two paragraphs applied to two artists w various descriptions of appearance
    i like waka flocka flame though
    met him once
    he seemed crazy 'irl' too

    • Jordancastroisthepresident

    Jordan,

    Thank you for introducing me to Waka Flocka Flame. I really like his music.

    • Jordancastroisthepresident

      you're welcome bro

  • chris

    think waka flocka left the brick squad because gucci changed management, and waka flocka's mom was gucci's manager

    • Jordancastroisthepresident

      jesus… he left brick squad, are you sure? i knew that re waka flocka flames' mom.

      • chris

        yeah, read it in hip hop weekly or something at walgreens.

      • Jordancastroisthepresident

        i just read on 3x 'online source' that gucci mane left 'so icey' for 'brick squad 1017' which is 'home to' oj da juiceman, waka flocka flame and gucci mane (he is the ceo as well). i think i was wrong re waka flocka flame being a part of 'so icey,' according to [online sources] he is a part of 'brick squad 1017'

  • kfox

    this spring was the spring waka flocka seemed to 'go hard' like every fucking day. it definitely kept my nihilism in check. whenever i'd start to feel jaded, i'd think, “but would i be existentially okay being waka flocka right now?”
    the answer was always “no.” it seemed like just going out in public, for waka flocka, was a game of russian roulette, and i wasn't committed to chaos enough to 'go that hard.'

    Waka Flocka Flame should have waited until LeBron made The Decision before dropping “Lebron Flocka James 2”. He looks silly wearing Cavaliers jersey.
