Waka Flocka Flame Talks Shooting, Details Revealed on Upcoming DJ Holiday Mixtape

Two days after getting shot in a botched robbery attempt, Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame called in to local radio station, Hot 107.9, yesterday (January 21) to speak on the unfortunate incident.

As previously reported, the Gucci Mane associate was attacked on Tuesday afternoon outside the Bubble Bath Car Wash on the Southside of the ATL. Longtime So Icey affiliate DJ Holiday informed XXLMag.com that the 23-year-old up-and-comer, born Juaqin Malphurs, suffered two gunshot wounds—one in the arm and one that entered through his shoulder and traveled near his lung.

“The bullet is lodged on the right side of his chest up under his arm,” Holiday said, “and that’s where the most trauma was.”

In a short phone call to the Durtty Boys on 107.9, Flocka told his side of what transpired. “I really can’t breathe that good, but I’ma break it all down,” he said, pacing his words carefully. “All I know was somebody was sent to kill me, but he was so scared, that he let me get out the car and grab what I tried to give to him. [He] hit me in my arm and my whole right side went out, so I couldn’t get him. But trust me, he coulda did the job if he wasn’t scared. That’s the word out to him and his people. I’m straight though, it just broke one of my ribs.” [Listen below]

“Shout out to everybody that’s been hating on me,” he added, “Y’all can’t stop me.”

Before getting shot, DJ Holiday says that he was working on a mixtape with Flame. Holiday, who is known for such popular Gucci Mane projects as The Writing on the Wall and The Cold War: Brrrusia, said that duo already recorded several tracks with many well known acts.

According to Southern DJ, the duo already has songs with Lil Jon, Yung LA, Alley Boy, Yo Gotti, and of course, it will include some unheard material from Flocka’s mentor Guch. “We try to do more personal records,” he said, “records that I have with Gucci that nobody ain’t heard, that I might jump him on.”—Jesse Gissen

      • sean

        nigga i see why you listen to him, your dumb ass can’t even spell and west coast hip hop is as dead as tookie williams

  • Enlightened

    This nigga is absolutely ridiculous. Glad he didn’t die…as a man.

    But the nigga is horrible as far as music is concerned.

    Also…did y’all know that his MAMA is Gucci Mane’s manager? Usually we have to wonder how niggas who can’t rap at all constantly get deals. Well, we know how he got his.

  • louie mo

    @enlightened ………..word , read that shit in the xxl with 50 on the cover ……. that nigga just got on cause of his mama ……but it sounds like she is a real good manager though

  • Phil Moe

    His music terrible but as a man I’m glad he’s alive. Too many of us dying over bullshit just like this. On another note….this nigga talking kinda greazy about the incident….and making himself even more of a target next time. He betta be careful. The next time they might send a nigga that ain’t “so scared” to do what the “scared” nigga couldn’t finish.

    YEEAAHH!!!!!!!OH LETS DO IT!!!!!SOUTH STAND UP!!!HATERS HATE!!!!

  • yoprince

    based off “o let’s do it” i def wouldn’t say he’s terrible at all. the energy of that song is palpable, especially the opening bars. i also like the part where he repeats the line “ever since they killed my nigga trav, been poppin pills actin’ crazy.” that’s real rap for you; the honesty of how a lot of young black men react to pain in an emotionally repressed urban society.

    haven’t heard much else to judge, but that song is dope.

  • HU

    Hi young black people:

    Am I to understand that if I get robbed and shot or my wife gets raped and I see the dude who did I need to stay silent and let him get away with it? Someone explain to me the logic please. It’s sad how trapped the minds of the black youth are.

    To Wocka: Do all you can to get this tatted scum off the streets. Either give the police all the information you have or let this crackhead with a dollar sign on his cheek shoot and paralyze or kill everyone who “ain’t no snitch”.

    • geico lizard

      Nice try HU but no snitching happens everywhere not just the young black community. On Wall Street they call them whistleblowers,Police protect each other with the blue wall. No one respects snitches so dont act like its just the young black community.

  • Teddy

    i can see the headline now “Waka Flocka Flame gets hit with the Waka Flocka Flame”

  • Diggsy

    For everyone sayin that he has a deal just cause of who his mom is, so what? What does a deal mean anyway? People act like that shit is some kind of guarantee that your gon take off. The people and the streets make artist. You could have a hundred deals, all it means is that you have more access to promotion and things like that. But, if people dont like your music it dont mean shit. Look at it this way, Soulja Boy was a KID that made up a song and dance in his bedroom that people liked. He made himself a millionaire and did numbers. Memphis Bleek has stood next to one of the biggest and richest rappers of our time, and had crazy access to radio, promo, concerts, etc. but people could care less about him. STOP HATIN – ITS BAD 4 UR HEALTH

  • Chris

    well lex i’ll be a lame wack nigga but never could i be wacker than wacka flacka lame.lol.and u say gucci betta than luda?lex u made me laugh,gucci dosent stand a chance against luda and if the 2 was to be in a rap battle between the 2 it would be all luda and dats not hate but facts.u and all gucci and wacka die hard fans dont know real hiphop.

  • Chris

    oh and u ask me y im glad wacka got shot and wish gucci get shot,the way i see it is if a rapper like wacka can make a song salute me or shoot me he deserve to be shot, cause aint nobody gon salute this clown who call himself a rapper.and gucci he should just be shot for being gucci.lol.and u lex should be shot just for being a die hard fan of these guys

  • http://xxlblocktalk.com/INDOE INDOE

    I don’t think it’s right that the man got shot . But lets face it the only reason he even spits with Gucci is because his mom is the manager of the company . Just another spot takin by somebody with no talent .

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    this is a shame. how can u hate a man music so much that u wish him dead. dang. turn the radio off. don’t watch the video. play wu tang 24/7. do something, but as an intellegent man who likes all thypes of music. the song for a song is a club banger. is it something u wanna listen to when kickin it to ur girl? is it something u wanna listen to for motivation? i mean come on people. don’t ask what hip hop can do for you but what u can do for hip hop
