Biography


Waka Flocka Flame was born by the name Juaquin Malphurs on May 31, 1986. He never dreamed of becoming an artist since he was a kid. Despite the fact that his mother is a CEO of artist management group Mizay Entertainment, he shied himself away from music and instead focused on his love for basketball.

And after his youngest brother died in automobile accident when he was just 14, Waka moved even further away from music, opting to spend his time running the streets of Atlanta with his friends. "That whole period of my life really messed with my head," he said. "I ain't even gonna lie - it killed me as a man. But it also made me stronger as a man in the future."
