Watch Waka Flocka Flame Literally Spit Fire in ‘Can’t Do Gold’ Video
Brick Squad trap god celebrates new 'DuFlocka Rant Halftime' with a track from previous mixtape
Waka Flocka Flame has just dropped his second mixtape of the year and it’s a hazed-out trap-rap delight dubbed DuFlocka Rant Halftime Show. That, of course, makes it the sequel to his excellent DuFlocka Rant 2, which found the former SPIN cover star hungry and, in the parlance of our times, rapping his ass off once again after the somewhat disappointing Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family LP. But if there was any question about where Waka’s head is at these days, the video for “Can’t Do Gold” should provide the answer. Sure, the track is from the last tape, but the clip is brand new and it finds our hero in a particularly keyed-up state: all flying dreads, middle fingers, and money stacks. At one point he scream-raps while with a lit sparkler between his teeth. As for the titular subject matter? Apologies to Trinidad James, but Mr. Flame is over the yellow stuff: “Bad bitches? / I got plenty of those / Diamond grills / I can’t do the golds.” Keep an eye out for cameos from Jim Jones, Frenchie and Mysonne. After all, Flocka puts it on his set.
