EDITORS’ NOTES

Flocka’s debut album, 2010’s Flockaveli, was the stuff of instant legend—one of trap’s most influential and straight-up fun full-lengths. It seemed weird when, just a few years later, the Atlanta rapper reinvested his interests into dubstep and EDM. In retrospect, though, was it really that weird? Flocka’s shouty, high-octane trap had a good deal in common with the debauched, fist-pump-friendly electronic bangers of the early 2010s. Maybe it’s a good time to revisit 2015’s The Turn up Godz Tour mixtape, Flocka’s first full-length EDM project, where straight-up rave tracks (“Turn It to a Rave”) sit alongside straightforward rap numbers (“Against All Odds”) and clubby remixes of Flocka standards (“Grove St. Party”), and frequent clips of Michael Buffer’s “Lllllllet’s get ready to rumble!” catchphrase adds a Jock Jams flair to the proceedings.
