Waka Flocka Flame might claim Southside Atlanta's Riverdale on record, but the influence of his New York birthplace sporadically pops up throughout his music, most recently throughout his latest mixtape, I Can't Rap Vol. 1. Hosted by New York rap icon DJ Whoo Kid, it's a classic 2000s-style beat-jack tape, with Waka running through hits of the last year with only a few wholly original songs in the mix. "3 Gold Chains" mines the sonic ties of NYC--complete with requisite Troy Ave guest spot--but it's still the kind of lumbering banger that made Flocka famous.
