Waka Flocka Flame

Media Title

What do you get when you mix testosterone, tatts, muscular beats and high-octane energy? The prototype for the contemporary rap artist, as personified by Waka Flocka Flame. This ain’t your grandmama’s hip-hop—that is, unless she likes her music loud and profane, with ballistic beats and rebelliousness as its driving force. Waka had the good fortune of being born into a family that understood the business of rap: His mother is Debra Mizay, who once managed Nikki Minaj and Gucci Mane. It was Mane who took the aspiring Waka under his wing, adding him to his Brick Squad crew, though Mane’s subsequent split with Mizay effectively ended that relationship. Like many rappers in the beginnings of their career, Waka shined on the mixtape circuit, then released his 2010 debut Flockaveli, featuring the unbridled anthem “Hard In Da Paint.”  His second CD, Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family, is out now. -Tonya Pendleton
