The pop/rap sensation Waka Flocka Flame seems to be collaborating with some of the biggest names in electronic music to create a new form of “EDM rap”. In an interview the website Hip-Hop DX he said this:
‘Club jumpin’ like I’m Skrillex, get ‘em Diplo…’ The King of Rap EDM is me. I’ve been there. Punk rap, that’s EDM. People didn’t understand what I was saying, now they do. I see a lot of my students, I’m like the principal, I’m here to talk.
Waka went on to confirm Skrillex, Diplo and Flosstradamus as collaborators saying that his new sound is “already in the motion. Flosstradamus, Diplo, Skrillex. Some underground people, too”. There are so many artist trying to get in on the electronic music craze these days it is almost tough to keep track of them all.
Waka has a new album coming out in October but has not revealed whether or not these new collaborations will be on it or not. When asked about the album he only said “The hardest. That shit hard. It’s hard.” then when asked if that is all he wanted to say he reiterated “It’s haaaaard.” Clearly his album will be “haaaaard” to say the least, and we will be sure to keep you posted as any more news about his “Rap EDM” collaborations becomes available.
