Six songs in to his fifth mixtape of 2011, what he calls the album before the album, Waka Flocka takes a break from screaming about Tyler Perry to sing. Is "Magic City" a sloppy tribute to Atlanta darling Future? P Smurf delivers a show-stealing third verse on "Turnt Up Niggaz," but Waka, Slim Dunkin and Wooh Da Kid shine together while riding Southside's weird, spare "You A Lie" beat. There they sound like a bunch of happy bullies, rapping from beach chairs, too high to hear your war stories.
