Waka Flocka Flame, DJ Whoo Kid

When: Thu., Sept. 1, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Waka Flocka Flame grew up around hip-hop royalty. His neighbors in his native Queens included Ja Rule and L.L. Cool J’s grandmother. His cousin was friendly with the Lost Boyz. But he never considered becoming a rapper. It wasn’t until his family moved to an Atlanta suburb and his mother, now the CEO of Mizay Entertainment, began managing Gucci Mane that the rhymes began to flow. Since then, he’s become one of the biggest and most controversial figures in hip-hop, equally famed for trap-infused hits “O Lets Do This” and “Hard in the Paint” as rifts with Method Man and Mane. Waka Waka Flocka Flame plays a two-night run at the Higher Ground Ballroom this Thursday and Friday, September 1 and 2. DJ Whoo Kid opens.

Price: $20/25. AA
