Waka modulates charisma and id like a great comedian, giving his money-and-mollies routines a strident – or archly silly – edge. This mixtape unites dumb-deadpan lines like "Nigga fuck with me: R.I.P." with the anguished "Bad Decision," about pink slips and friends with knives. The bouncy production is as smooth as Waka is spiky. Guests like Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne are just along for the drive-by.

    Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
