A few hours ago, Waka explained the significance of his 2010 release.

Last year, Waka apologized to fans for lying about Flockaveli 2 release dates.

“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.”

In November 2016, Flocka announced his departure from Atlantic Records.
