With Father’s Day in full effect, Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame recently talked about his status with kids and whether or not he has his own baby’s mother.
Although he does not have his own offspring, Flocka said he fully embraces fathering his god children.
“I’ve got a little family now. It’s a secret. I have god kids. But I don’t have any of my own kids. They’re still in my nuts, swimming around. They aren’t ready to come out. Being in a family kind of changes your lyrics though, because you’ve got the little ones listening to your stuff. And you wanna be more mature because you’ve got a woman. My house is getting remodeled. I’m going with the all-white look for the kitchen and dining room. I’ve got a studio in there. I’m thinking about moving out, so I’m really like building it up to be like, the Brick Squad mansion. I’m 25. Five years from now I’ll be 30. But a lot of people in the game now will be 40, or close to it. So I’m like, shit, I’m cool. I ain’t in no rush. I want to make a good investment in this now though, so I can sit down later. Cause when I’m 30-something, I’m gonna be grumpy.” (The FADER)
Not only a father to god kids, Waka launched an anti-bullying campaign last January.
On Tuesday, January 24, 2012, multi-platinum hip hop artist Waka Flocka Flame, SEA Brand Clothing, and Complex Magazine, hosted the launch of his custom Brick Squad Monopoly snapback. The event, a culmination of an early January fan based initiative titled #WakaNewYear that brought Waka Flocka Flame’s 5.2 million plus Face Book fans together in choosing a cause that he should support in 2012. The winning cause, Anti- Bullying was chosen by the fans and triumphed over alternative education and arts education in inner cities. Once the cause was announced fans were asked to help the rapper design a snapback cap that would ultimately give back to the cause in perpetuity. 25% of all sales from the SEA/BSM custom snapback collaboration will be donated to the Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center.

Speaking on the cause, Waka previously said he hates all bullies and his involvement in the campaign would raise widespread awareness.
“F*ck bullies … Honestly, man I appreciate everybody coming out … I got my security right here,” jokingly referring to a small child standing next to him. “Y’all made this possible 3.3 million people, see that’s good, we’re trying to get like 10 million before the year’s out, so y’all need to help. We kickin’ a** and Kung-Fuing bullies.” (All Hip Hop)
Recently, Flocka killed speculation suggesting he had plans to retire.
“I’m on my second one, so the third one might be true,” Flocka said when asked about retiring after a third LP. “I don’t know. The way they treat me, I spent my lifetime trying to do this. I don’t see myself quitting no more, it’s over for that. On to the next one.” (Hip Hop Wired)
