Rapper Waka Flocka Flame is no longer focusing on the gunman who nearly took his life during a shooting last month.
From Flocka’s perspective, his profile within rap has only grown since the near-death attack.
“I ain’t worried about you. I appreciate you too,” Flame addressed the gunman, looking directly into MTV News‘ camera. “You got me sacked up real big. I got a stupid house off you, cars off you. I appreciate you, man. That’s on them folks. Let them folks do they job. It is what it is. Y’all done said enough. I did enough. What, I’mma keep flippin’ the story? I don’t know, bruh. Let them live their life, I’mma live my life. That’s right there [behind me]. They sitting right there. They probably not even sitting this close. I’m giving them too much. I ain’t even worried about them. That’s so behind me right now.” (MTV)
Flocka recently said the 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 previously 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)
