Smoking weed isn’t unusual for rappers, but does Waka Flocka Flame smoke weed? He’s not your typical rapper. He’s a vegan by choice, made an EDM trap album, and he’s been shot at. When he’s not dodging bullets and creating songs for the world to turn up to what is he up to? Does Waka Flocka Flame smoke weed in his free time? We’ll go over the evidence to find out.
Who is Waka Flocka Flame?
Juaqin James Malphurs is Waka Flocka Flame’s birth name. In 2010 he was shot twice during a robbery at a car wash in Atlanta. However, he survived and blessed us with the classic hit single “Hard in da Paint.”
Since then he’s collaborated with other popular acts including fellow brick squad member Gucci Mane. Later on, he was kicked out of the brick squad, and his beef with Gucci Mane continues to this day.
However, that’s the only type of beef Waka is having because he’s a vegan. In fact, him and singer/songwriter Raury taught the internet how to make vegan blueberry muffins. He says the vegan lifestyle has him feeling less achy and more energetic. The rapper hasn’t had a new project released since 2015. Maybe he’s been a little distracted?
Puff or Pass?
So it’s time to get to the bottom of it. Does Waka Flocka Flame smoke weed or is he passing on the blunt? To find some answers we had to look at his lyrics, criminal record, and social media profiles.
The first piece of evidence we found comes from an arrest in 2011. He was booked for possession of marijuana among other things. Since it wasn’t the only controlled substance he had on him, he may just have been selling it. We had to look further to find out whether or not he actually smokes it.
Song lyrics from a few years before this incident say he does smoke weed. “All I know is smoke weed, rob, steal, and sell dope,” Waka sings on his song “All I Know.” Rappers have been known to exaggerate, and this was from 2009, so we’ll go over some more evidence.
The most compelling evidence comes from Waka Flocka’s own Instagram page. He was laid out on a stretcher in the back of an ambulance in one photo. It happened during his trip to Seattle where weed was made recreationally legal. He really took advantage of the cannabis laws while he was there. In fact, he blamed the scene on “edibles and 20 or more blunts.” We’ll take that as a confession.
Final Hit: Does Waka Flocka Flame Smoke Weed?
According to his lyrics and social media posts, Waka Flocka Flame smokes bud and doesn’t give AF who knows. In fact, he smoked his way all the way into a stretcher. It’s hard to overdose on cannabis, but he’s known for going hard in da paint. Fortunately, you’d need a lot more than 20 blunts to overdose on weed. So, he’s alive, well, and working on his next album, titled “Flockaveli 2.”
