Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame is back on his grind. The hip-hop star has announced his return to hitmaking and revealed he never planned on dropping his long-delayed Flockaveli 2 album.

According to Waka, he’s ready to flood the next 11 months with new music.

“Alright man, I’m back,” Waka said in a clip. “2017, I’m dropping mad new sh*t. I took three and a half years off making music. I don’t know, I apologize for lying like Flockaveli 2 knowing d*mn well I’m not gonna put it out. I was waiting for the right situation. I was just chilling, spending money – everybody asks me why I do so many shows, just to travel, just to see the world. I’m already rich. I love partying. The money’s good still. I learned don’t talk so hard on the camera.”
