Waka Flocka Flame + Drake Clap It Up in ‘Round of Applause’ Video
Everyone clap for Waka Flock Flame! Several months after the song’s initial release and a slew of behind-the-scenes footage later, the rapper finally premiered the video for his strip club anthem ‘Round of Applause.’ The clip also features in-demand rapper Drake.
Part of the reason for its tardiness is because the video is a sort of mini-movie. Directed by veteran videographer Mr. Boomtown, Waka narrates the story about love and greed involving his former childhood sweetheart. Playing the Atlanta rhyme-slinger’s love interest is VH1′s ‘Basketball Wives (L.A.)’ star Draya who has become a “fixture of the underworld” and is addicted to fast money.
The video is intercut with scenes of Waka and the gang hitting the strip club where it’s raining dollar bills and bodacious women in body paint swiveling their hips to the hand-clapping jam.
Drake also makes a cameo in the clip as Waka’s right-hand man as he spits baller-ific lyrics of spending racks (money) in the club. “Oh no, there I go / Magic City on yo a– / Throwin’ every president except for Nixon on your a–,” he raps.
Waka’s ‘Round of Applause’ is part one of a two-part video series in conjunction to his upcoming album ’Triple F Life: Friends Fans and Family,’ which is due out later this year.
