Today In Hip-Hop: Waka Flocka Flame Celebrates 27th Birthday

On this day, May 31, in hip-hop history…


1986: Waka Flocka Flame turns 27 today.

The Southern rapper took the hip-hop world by storm in 2009 with his hit single “O Let’s Do It,” which peaked at No. 7 in Billboard’s Hot Rap Tracks. With his energetic music, the Bricksquad member has come a long way since his first mixtape, Salute Me or Shoot Me, and continues to make his name in the rap game.

Always working, Waka is planning on releasing his next album Flockavelli 2, which is said to be released on October 5 and two more mixtapes. Next in the path of Waka are movies. He revealed he has signed a deal in his first feature film which is said to be starring DMX and Steven Seagal. With music, and now movies, Waka continues to prove he can provide the flame that the industry needs.

Happy Birthday Waka Flocka Flame!—Raven Irabor
