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 Flocka Flame will release 12 brand new records to his fans directly as a free download on Friday, Nov. 20.
Waka Flocka Flame is referring to this album, as Flockaveli 1.5 alluding to his fans that Flockaveli 2 is indeed still forthcoming, pending resolution to his dispute with Atlantic Records. In the meantime, true Waka Flocka Flame fans that have been patiently waiting for a new album after significant delays will be rewarded with new music courtesy of Flockaveli 1.5.
Brick Bronson, President, 36BRICKHOUSE elaborates, “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 on Nov. 20. Introducing Flockaveli 1.5. This is how I say thank you to my fans who’ve been patient and supportive all this time.”
