A new mixtape from Waka Flocka Flame is the sort of thing that makes me want to smash slabs of concrete to dust with my bare hands, and since he releases another one every couple of months, the sidewalk outside my apartment is looking pretty rough. He’s now followed up October’s triumphant Lebron Flocka James 3, probably his best 2011 tape, by teaming up with the smooth, monotonal Bronx tough guy French Montana, who plays the sleepy-eyed yin to Flocka’s growling-lunatic yang on the brand new Lock Out. They make a good pair, and it’s fun to hear the Queens-born, Atlanta-based Flocka attacking beats that sound more New York than his usual fare, getting even more emotional in the process.
