Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame didn’t look to 2 Chainz or Lil Wayne for growing out his hair. The hip-hop artist has credited a throwback movie character for inspiring his signature dreads.

Flocka went to Instagram this past weekend and saluted Larenz Tate‘s “O-Dawg” character from Menace II Society.

Earlier this year, Flocka went to war with streaming giant Datpiff.

Outside of the social media explosion, Waka recently celebrated a major anniversary with longtime bae Tammy Rivera.

In July, Waka showered Tammy with some birthday love on social media.
