Waka Flocka Flame goes hard in the (Juggalo) paint
I don’t know about you, but it seems that every year when the artists are announced for The Gathering, there is at least one that surprises me. The one that got me this year was Waka Flocka Flame. I didn’t think negatively of his appearance, but I felt…. well.. surprised. From what I remember of what I have heard, he’s not bad.
When it came time for Waka to perform.. he didn’t quite get the welcome he’s used to. Juggalos can be tough to win over. You gotta show heart. It’s possible he was being viewed as a mainstream artist who didn’t belong at the Gathering. On that note, his welcome was with bottles of water being thrown at him… what does he respond with?? He does what any normal guy would do who is preforming for some rowdy Juggalos and wants to win them over…. He jumps in the crowd, of course!!
Since then, all I’ve heard is good things about him from the fam. Some have said they have a whole new respect for Waka. Maybe he’ll come back next year.. If not to perform, to kick it. Until then.. start filling your gathering piggy bank. Whoop whoop!
