  1. Assembled by the album's main beat-peddling prodigy, Lex Luger, they showcase a masterclass in reductionism; juggernauts of hulking, bruising, brick-to-skull intensity.

    Flockaveli is delivery-driven, then, in the best possible sense: it is a chorus of proficient, varied flows, avoiding the pitfalls of impotent swag music and pugnacious garishness.

    On its own terms, it's a lean, mean success – and questions about longevity can probably wait until the follow-up.

    The beats are banging, and Waka proves that owning a thesaurus and being clever aren't the only way to be a rapper. Waka is a blunt instrument that beats you into submission.

    For all the credit given to Luger-- who, in fairness, has upped the bar for rap producers competing with the post-Tunnel nightclub gangster aesthetic-- it's Waka who gives this record its frenetic intensity.

    Waka barely bothers to write rhymes, but Flockaveli is hypnotic, focusing attention on the details beneath the bombast.

    Flockaveli's flaw is not Waka's coarseness, but his generosity--25 guest verses from anonymous Brick Squad cronies suck up air instead of letting Waka breathe without mentor Gucci Mane's oxygen tank.

Lex Luger's production is outstanding, and Waka's lyrics describe thug life perfectly. He's not lyrical but his gangsta lyrics along with the outstanding beats make this album an almost gangsta classic. This album earns a borderline B+ and A-. Full Review »

    I recommend this album to those who love southern crunk music. Waka Flocka has been my Favorite rapper since his first mix-tape. Brick Squad Monopoly!
