Over the course of his career, Waka Flocka Flame has had one of the more-interesting careers. The Atlanta, by way of Queens, rapper made a name for himself via mixtapes. His true career aspiration, however, was to be a professional wrestler.
Coming up during an interesting time, Waka Flocka gained stardom just before Atlanta’s wave, led by 2 Chainz and Future. He was making anthems with Drake long before they were even well-known. But, international touring and switching to EDM was it for Waka.
Since 2012, Waka Flocka Flame has kept a low profile, for the most part. In the wake of his absence, guys like Chicago’s Famous Dex, Philly’s Lil Uzi Vert, and Atlanta’s 21 Savage and Lil Yachty have taken over, but Lil Wayne denied ever having heard of them in a recent interview. Later, Waka Flocka posted an Instagram video, calling older rappers haters of the new school, leading some to believe he was targeting Wayne, which he has now denied doing.
