Gucci Mane's So Icey recording artist Juaquin "Waka Flocka Flame" Malphurs has reportedly been shot multiple times in Georgia today.
According to reports, the shooting took place at an Atlanta gas station.
Gucci Mane understudy and author behind the smash hit "O Let's Do It," Waka Flocka, was reportedly injured in a shooting earlier today. While stopping at a gas station off Old National Highway in Atlanta, Flocka was approached by unknown men at gunpoint and was told to hand over his chain. After refusing to give up his jewelry, the suspects fired shots in the direction of Waka Flocka hitting him twice. More details to come. UPDATE: Label confirmed exclusively to KarenCivil.com these accounts are true. (Karen Civil)
Further details suggest the emcee's injuries are not fatal.
Waka Flocka Flame (who is part of Gucci Mane's Brick Squad crew, and Mizay Mgmt as well) was shot today in an alleged robbery attempt. There are reports that it happened at a gas station or at the barbershop....either way, from what I'm hearing, Waka was not shot in the chest (as is widely rumored), and is not in critical condition. Insiders are citing arm/shoulder wounds and say that the young "O, Let's Do It" rapper will be ok. Which is good news. (Miss Info TV)
He reportedly signed his deal with Gucci roughly six years ago.
At 23 years of age, Waka is a solo artist, and the youngest member of the So Icey Boyz - a popular Atlanta-based rap group signed to Gucci Mane's So Icey Entertainment/1017 Brick Squad, which he joined in 2004. (Mizay Entertainment)
Gucci, who is currently incarcerated, recently spoke on releasing a new album later this year.
"I got an album coming out April 2010," Gucci revealed in an interview. "It's called The State vs. Radric Davis: The Appeal. Seventeen tracks. It's already recorded, getting mixed and mastered as we speak. I'm dropping a trilogy with The State vs. Radric Davis. When I get out, I'll be working on the third part to the trilogy. The final [will be called] The State vs. Radric Davis: The Verdict. That'll be [in stores] December of 2010." (MTV)
