Waka Flocka, ‘DuFlocka Rant: Halftime Show’ – Mixtape Review
The weather is getting warm and Waka Flocka is helping to turn that heat up even higher with his latest mixtape, ‘DuFlocka Rant: Halftime Show.’
This mixtape is the third installment of the ‘DuFlocka Rant’ series and it gives a different vibe to what we’re used to hearing.
Flocka starts off the project in a very subtle mood, with ‘Just a Sample.’ Adrian Marcel sings the hook of the song, on which he makes sure to point out that he’s “too real.”
The second track, ‘Whole Wide World,’ keeps you cruising with a hook from Avery Storm, who’s best known for collaborating with Rick Ross on his 2008 single ‘Here I Am.’ Flocka’s flow is pretty nice in this song, as he claims he is “invincible” on the track, able to get money anywhere and profoundly saying that it’s “his year.”
Starting with ‘Activist,’ the mixtape continues to show the side of Waka Flocka we’re familiar with. Trap music and hard 808s that will certainly test the best subwoofers you can get.
This project overall shows a little diversity for the usually high-energy artist. In the track ‘Judge For You,’ Flocka tells a story with the troubles of being yourself. “Tell you to be yourself, and when you do they judge you,” he explains as he walks you through a day in his life.
One of the most anticipated collaborations on the mixtape is the ‘50K Remix,’ which features T.I. The track disappoints as you would expect the song to be more impactful with such a skilled artist as Tip.
With production from Drumma Boy, 808 Mafia and C4, ‘DuFlocka Rant: Halftime Show’ gives a good mix of turn up trap music and some laid-back tracks to just ride out to. It shows Flocka’s growth and his potential to create strictly live music.
