The once seemingly disparate worlds of rave and rap are no doubt colliding in 2013. Trap music is a world-wide phenomenon. 2 Chainz played HARD Summer and Danny Brown played Electric Forest. UZ did a mixtape featuring names like Trindiad Jame$ and Problem while Dirty South Joe smashed Shade45 delivering a fire mix for Sway In The Morning. Perhaps the craziest of it all, earlier this March AJR captured hip-hop superstar Waka Flocka, also affectionately known as Big Homie Flock, Flocka, Waka, and to his mother Juaquin Malphurs, partying with Dutch producer Chuckie in Miami during Winter Music Conference and although the pairing seemed a bit out of place at the time, it was ultimately a prelude to Waka’s April announcement of an “EDM-album” featuring production from Skrillex, Diplo, and Flosstradamus. Although we definitely took a stab at what we thought the album might sound like, the details have been scarce. Last week, we caught up with Waka Flocka for a quick phone call and update on what’s going on.
