Waka Flocka: Getting Shot Made Me Richer, Popular, Wiser

(AllHipHop News) Taking a bullet is a moment in a person’s life that definitely alters them in some way. Speaking with R&R Productions, Waka Flocka touched on how getting shot changed him and his career.

“It made me richer, sad to say. Made you popular, sad to say. It just made me as a man and as a person more wiser, clever, stronger, devious in situations,” says Waka. “It just makes you a stone cold thinker. Honestly, it just really turned me up more.”

Waka was shot in the shoulder in 2010 after being approached by an armed man at car wash in Atlanta. Several months after the shooting, the BSM member released his debut album Flockaveli which featured the hit songs “O Let’s Do It” and “Hard In Da Paint.”

Waka dropped his DJ Scream hosted mixtape From Roaches To Rollies earlier this month.

      tell them folks in the hood to stop robbing dudes for material ish and smarten up and robb them for some knowledge and maybe they can get they folks up out that situation and also pass the knowledge forward …………

    Can’t hate, Waka has slowed down on his dumb ish, at least publicly. I think an epiphany hit him (or a bullet) reminding him the music was a way to get OUT the hood not, stay in the foolishness. There was no need to beef with Gucci, he put Waka on, now Waka doing his own thing.

      all that may be true but why didn’t he speak on the fact that he also had an opportunity to experience a college education and factor that into being ” richer & wiser”… SMFH!!!
