Waka Flocka Flame Reads ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’
After 100 million copies sold worldwide and an undying global fascination since its 2011 release, Fifty Shades Of Grey, the movie, hit theaters this past weekend. The box office numbers, as expected, were phenomenal, leading the erotic tale to nab the biggest February opening in history, succeeding Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ. The erotic drama brought in $85 million in just one weekend, beating out the $81.7 million estimate.
Believe it or not, the love story has even made its way into hip-hop. The popularity of the novel along with a cameo from Roc Nation signee, Rita Ora in the film and a Beyonce heavy soundtrack has lately but surely led the hip-hop community to jump on the bandwagon.
So, XXL thought, "Why not have some fun with it." Known to always bring forth a good laugh or two, we reached out to Waka Flocka Flame. Although the rapper was not initially familiar with the book, it's certain that he picked up a copy of his own after our sit-down.
