If someone read that being in 2018 Waka Flocka Flame last studio album was released in 2012, he could think this Atlanta rapper has nothing more to bring to the table. But nothing further from the truth. Since the very moment he released his hit songs in 2009, he captured the admiration of audiences worldwide. Each concert is an opportunity for him to show why he is still on the map. Just a step on the stage, and he makes the crowd go nuts.
Everyone gets their start somehow. For Waka Flocka Flame, that somehow was undoubtedly his breakthrough single “O Let’s do it”. But what do we know about Waka Flocka before this huge moment? He was born in 1986 in New York and raised in Georgia where his dreams of being an artist started to come true. As a rapper, he’s known as Waka Flocka Flame, but his real name is Juaquin James Malphurs.
2018 Waka Flocka Flame and the trap music scene
As any human being, he’s been touched by sad moments in his life. 2013 was a hard year for this chart topper. One of his brothers sadly passed away and he had to go on despite his loss and grief. Another personal issue that was made public and had to deal with was the end of his very close relationship with Gucci Mane. So far, they have no longer spoken to each other.
Things started to get much better in 2014, and he married his longtime girlfriend Tammy Rivera. He’s showed he likes being in touch with the ones that are his priority, his fans. At the end of 2017, Waka and his wife started with total success their own reality show “Meet the Flockas”, so his fans could follow the important events in their idol singer’s life.
A big round of applause for him
We’re now in 2018 Waka Flocka Flame and although it’s been a long time since his last studio album, it doesn’t mean he stopped making good music. He just deserves what the title of one of his lead songs suggests a “round of applause”, and we’d say a big round of applause.
He’s been on his grind for almost a decade. After his singles O Let’s do it, Hard in da Paint, No hands, Round of applause and his album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family , he’s released great mixtapes and nine installments of Waka Flocka Myers. And to be on the top of the attention, he’s also done a couple of interesting things.
No one could believe their eyes when they read the headlines about Waka Flocka Flame’s candidacy for President of the United States. He had greater aspirations than winning awards, and apart from the fact he was an incredible musician, he wanted to give his nation the best of him.
The dopest vegetarian? Or the dopest rapper?
He was a vegan for a while, but now he describes himself as a conscious eater. Despite he’s no longer a vegan, his love for animals is huge and also took active part of the campaign “Ink Not Mink”. He posed naked for PETA showing how comfortable he feels in his own skin letting animals keep theirs. PETA saw the World’s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity, but his fans saw one of the hottest rappers ever!
