Waka Flocka Flame Featuring Roscoe Dash & Wale, "No Hands"

72 Billboard Rating

Like his mentor Gucci Mane, Georgia MC Waka Flocka Flame releases his rhymes in a viscous Southern drawl and works with pummeling beats. Yet while Mane has yet to release a crossover hit, Flame may have struck gold with "No Hands," the playful posse cut from debut album "Flockaveli." Over a smoldering beat by Drumma Boy, the rapper keeps his opening verse tightly packed before Wale arrives with a more expansive flow. However, Roscoe Dash nearly steals the show by delivering the chorus in a lightheaded warble as well as the most memorable line, "I be goin' ham/Shorty upgrade from baloney," during his closing verse. "No Hands" might lack a cohesive lyrical statement among the three MCs, but the accessible hook and Flame's charismatic personality make the song a potential breakout.
