Waka Flocka Flame to Headline First NYC Show

Waka Flocka Flame will be coming to New York for his first headlining gig in NY, later this month.

The Atanta based rapper—who was born in Queens, NY—will be rocking B.B. King Blues Club on March 23. $30 tickets for the show are currently on sale, which is set to kick off at 11:30 p.m.

New Yorkers are known for being a hard crowd to win over and are particularly tough on Southern artists. In 2009 Flocka’s associate OJ Da Juiceman infamously got booed offstage at the same club.

Yet this isn’t exactly Waka’s first time performing for a NY audience—along with 1017 Brick Squad leader Gucci Mane, the two played at last year’s annual Hot 97 Summer Jam concert.

Stay tuned to XXLMag.com in the coming weeks for ticket giveaways for the event.—Elan Mancini

    The sad thing is, the old NYC wouldve boooed his ass off stage in a heartbeat but with this new radio brainwashed generation of Hip Hop fans, him and garbage ass gucci will probably get a standing ovation!

    We don’t listen or endorse southern garbage in N.Y. I respect Gucci and Waka gettin their money but out here in N.Y we all bout the lrics, flow and delivery. We on that quality music shit. That Southern garbage might work out the in them other states but in N.Y we will spit on these niggaz. We are hip hop.
