Waka Flocka Announces Forthcoming Album ‘Turn Up God’ And Guest Appearances
Looking past the tradition of launching cakes and crowd surfing, it seems that Dim Mak records boss and EDM heavyweight Steve Aoki is now responsible for influencing Waka Flocka’s new EDM-themed persona and forthcoming album, Turn Up God.
Bordering one year ago, Waka Flocka found inspiration in the Rage the Night Away producer’s style whilst supporting him on the Aokify America tour.
“Steve Aoki is like the electronic Waka Flocka. He just known for turning up. I feel like he’d do everything I do … It’s amazing, I respect him.” – Waka Flocka
Waka Flocka’s most recent works with Flosstradamus and Steve Aoki preview what he has been dabbling with in regards to the new album, but the respective tracks “TTU” and “Rage the Night Away” still remain heavy in rap and hip hop roots.
Waka Flocka has hinted that more familiar and welcomed dance music stars may collaborate for a group remix effort of Dillon Francis’ latest with Diplo, Steve Aoki, The Zombie Kids, Borgore, and Carnage. Waka Flocka’s Turn Up God is scheduled to release this fall with a following rap album releasing later this year.
