“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.
