Juaquin "Waka Flocka Flame" Malphurs has addressed his near-fatal shooting this week and said the attack was not accidental.
According to Flocka, a hitman was too nervous to kill him.
"I really can't breathe that good but I'll break it all down right now," Waka said in an interview. "All I know is somebody was sent to kill me but he was so scared he let me get out the car -- he hit me in my arm -- trust me, he could have did his job. That's the word out to him and his people. And I'm straight though, I just broke one of my ribs -- I'll be out there. Shout-out to everybody that's been hating on me..." (Hot 107)
Associate DJ Holiday recently discussed the shooting and Flocka's injuries.
"He's actually responding better," Holiday revealed. "He got shot in the arm and the other one hit him in the shoulder and it moved around and hit him [near his] lung...so he has a hard time breathing and moving. The bullet is lodged on the right side of his chest up under his arm -- and that's where the most trauma was. He's a tough dude [and] he make jokes about it." (XXL Mag)
The attack reportedly 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 revealed the emcee's injuries were 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)
