In one of his new album’s more endearing moments, Atlanta MC Waka Flocka Flame eats a bag of chips, punctuating chomps with a zesty burp and a slurred "'scuse me." Consider it artistic growth; 2010's  Flockaveli  made no 'scuses for its mesmerizingly dumb intensity. Triple F is another set of barked strip-club salvos ("Versace on my ass/Two bands for my underwear/Foreign cars, foreign broads, baller of the year"), over high-hats and slurry synths from producer Lex Luger and a cast of lessers. Drake and Nicki Minaj add style, and one track is called "Power of My Pen," but classing up Waka is like putting a fig leaf over King Kong’s balls.

    “Party Rock Anthem”

    LMFAO | 2011

    This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
