I know what you’re thinking: Waka Flocka Flame — the guy from Atlanta who was once the bane of true school hip-hop heads — and Troy Ave — the Brooklyn MC who has made it his life’s mission to “restore the feeling” — is the most unlikely pairing ever. And while that’s true on paper, on wax it’s an entirely different story. In one of the most surprising collaborations of the year, Waka and Troy actually tag team the shit out of this new track, “3 Gold Chains,” with Fozzie Bear stepping up his pen game like never before.

“Ain’t no feeling on Earth like being broke, n—a / If there ain’t no trees I’ll sell a fiend soap, n—a,” he spits over the hulking beat, which balances East Coast grittiness with the trunk-knocking levels you hear down South. Stay tuned for Flocka’s (ironically-titled) mixtape I Can’t Rap Vol. 1 dropping next week, followed by the “3 Gold Chains” music video.
