    Remember when Flockaveli came out and it sucked well this is the complete opposite this has songs for everybody by far his best work. This is for all music fans, great beats, and trunk bangers.

    While not as urgent or quite as thrilling as his, at this point debut genre defining masterpiece 'Flockaveli', Triple F is a satisfactory follow up. The trimmings have been slimmed and Waka Flocka Flame is is at the centre of this project a bit more (although even before his voice was the one you'd pay most attention too) with fewer guests, even so, there's almost a feature for each track.While not as urgent or quite as thrilling as his, at this point debut genre defining masterpiece 'Flockaveli', Triple F is a satisfactory follow up. The trimmings have been slimmed and Waka Flocka Flame is is at the centre of this project a bit more (although even before his voice was the one you'd pay most attention too) with fewer guests, even so, there's almost a feature for each track. Never the less, they play their parts well particularly Drake, Meek Mill, Bun B & Ludacris. This time round, all A listers who may of cost a pretty penny but still turn in memorable performances although they often ever so slightly overshadow him. Waka himself has upped his lyrical ability notably earning himself a place among the more respected trap rappers you find every which way lately. Not only are his rhymes improved but his conscious side scratched at on 'For My Dawgs' is further explored, not as in detail as say Andre 3000 (that would be a ridiculous advance) but you get the idea. Songs that feature this self awareness include the brilliantly produced 'Triple F Life (Intro)', 'Power of My Pen' and the again, terrifically produced, Outro. The beats that previously were supplied by Lex Luger have been swapped over in favour of up and comer Southside which plays in Waka's favour because nothing is worse when a rapper has a hot sound and abuses the hell out of it. Waka exploring new soundscapes is a blessing but luckily still, we get Lex Luger for one song "Round Of Applause"; And here was me thinking Luger was a one trick pony capable of one sound, a woozy banger drawing Obviously from Drake's usual production team, 40 and/or T-Minus. Its a shame to only have him give in one beat but still, its better then nothing. Not without its missteps, Get Low over bears its mark into pop territory which Waka near enough completely fails in. His attempt is somewhat endearing though although at once entirely tepid. Similarly Trey Songz featuring 'I Don't Really Care'. Other problems are that some tracks suffer from simply being, for Waka unforgivably, boring. Despite the flaws, there are many pros and this a project that cancels out the second album jinx allowing Waka to continue relevance with his development as a writer. Unlike so many rappers before him, I'm pleased to say Waka will not fall off the face of the earth any time soon and his success is not just be a flash in the pan but the start of a bright career.

    This album is nowhere near as strong as Flocka's debut, Flockaveli, there's no denying that. We see Waka change his lyrical style from Flockaveli's violent and dramatic lyrics about thug life to more popular and overused subject matters. However, the lyrics are saved by the times when Waka is talking about his personal life. The production on here is a bit weaker than Flockaveli'sThis album is nowhere near as strong as Flocka's debut, Flockaveli, there's no denying that.

However, the lyrics are saved by the times when Waka is talking about his personal life. The production on here is a bit weaker than Flockaveli's production (as can be clearly seen by the lack of Lex Luger on this album), however, Southside's production substituting Lex Luger's for the majority still makes for interesting trap production. Grade: B. Highlights: "Lurkin", "Let Dem Guns Blam", "Rooster in My Rari", 'Round of Applause". Worst songs: "Fist Bump" (why the guitar solo???), "Get Low" Expand

    What Waka lacks in depth and purpose, he makes up for with conviction. [#253, p.87]

    There are enough songs with worthwhile beats and guests to hold this album together to some degree, and depending on whether or not you like Flocka's lyrical style will be the degree.

    While there are some highlights on the album, they don't nearly make up for the glaring flaws throughout, the lack of noteworthy lyrics or the redundancy in topics, flows, hooks and beats.
