Trap, Bass and Hip Hop fans rejoice as Waka Flocka Flame will finally come to Perth.
The Queens-bred, Atlanta-based MC is always thinking outside of the box. He has collaborated and featured on tracks from Neon Dreams to Steve Aoki and Flosstradamus to name a few… When you hear Waka's scratchy voice over electro beats, it's his way of showing that trap music isn't his only trick. "I'm trying to open people's brains up," Waka says. "You don't have to be stuck in a fucking bubble. You don't have to do this kind of music because people say you are this kind of artist. I do electronic music just to get out the bubble."
The riotous rapper, who penned hits like "O Let's Do It" and "No Hands," has undergone an artistic transformation since his 2010 bombastic debut "Flockaveli." He's experimented with his sound but always with the focus on growing as a rapper.
Born Juaquin James Malphurs, the 28-year-old rapper rose to prominence as Gucci Mane's protégé and his flagship artist of 1017 Brick Squad. In 2009, Waka put trap back on the map, dropping the first volume of his street classic "Salute Me or Shoot Me", with tracks such as "We On The Way, "Dreads N Gold" and his breakout single "O Let's Do it." The mixtape's buzz allowed Waka to release his proper debut "Flockaveli" in October, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 100. Following his sudden popularity, hip-hop's mainstream elite like T.I., Drake and B.o.B wanted to collaborate with him while he spread his influence to a host of new rappers like Wooh Da Kid and Frenchie.
Fast forward to 2015, Waka's high energy is the sole reason why he's earned the nickname "Turn Up God." That style translates into the EDM world Waka calls home now, where he fell in the love with the genre during a tour in Europe two years ago. "Music is like anger management," he says. "It's fun. You get to express yourself."
With 1.3 million followers on Twitter (@WakaFlockaBSM) and over a million followers on Instagram, he's become the second most active celebrity on social media platforms, as well as the second most searched name on Google. Waka Flocka Flame is also cultivating a steady EDM presence thanks to touring with Steve Aoki and appearing on songs by DJ producer Borgore and Flosstradamus.
