Uhhh, what? You’re as confused as I am. Apparently Waka Flocka Flame has a song out with Good Charlotte. In case you don’t know who Good Charlotte is, they’re a pop-punk band from the early 2000s. They had songs like “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” go gold in 2002–further revealing my age. They’ve pretty much been on hiatus since 2011 and haven’t recorded a new album since 2010. How do I know this? Because I’ve used my Googles. But for some strange reason they’ve reunited (I guess?) with one of Atlanta’s long forgotten rappers, Waka Flocka (Flockaveli 2 should be out sometime soon, I think. All I know is I still love the first Flockaveli.) Also another baffling thing about this entire scheme here is that it’s for the soundtrack of a movie called Pixels, which stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James (how exciting, right?) that’s due out July 24th. “Game On” just reminds me how far we’ve traveled since Run-D.M.C. and Aerosmith. Listen to “Game On” after the jump… if you want.

Waka Flocka Flame’s “disgust” over the actions displayed in Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s (SAE) viral clip has prompted the rapper to cancel his April concert at the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Waka responding to SAE’s offensive behavior earlier this week via an Instagram post, he appeared in an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Tuesday to share more of his thoughts.
“My initial reaction when I seen the video, I was more like hurt. More like disgusted, because I knew those kids, I performed for those kids,” the Atlanta rapper said in reference to a 2014 concert at the university. “They made me feel like a brother. Just to see what a person does behind closed doors was more disgusting than hurting. I wasn’t angry, I was just disgusted.”

With 50 Shades of Grey now in theaters XXL decided to sit down with one Waka Flocka Flame and have a reading session. Apparently Waka didn’t know what he was getting into when agreeing to read the controversial, sexually-laced novel by E. L. James. And we are grateful he didn’t know because the results are hilarious! Check out both parts after the jump.
Thanksgiving is here! Thanksgiving is here! But it’s not all fun and games and stuffing your face with food. While we sit comfortably in our humble abode with our loved ones, celebrating with a feast, there are those who go out and make sure to help those in need. Sadly, however, rappers aren’t exactly the first profession that’d cross your mind as being “helpful” as these are merely gangsters, drug dealers, and entertainers, right? Wrong. For example Birdman and Cash Money are participating in their 20th annual Turkey Giveaway this week. And that’s not all, as rappers like Jeezy, T.I., and Ludacris regularly find themselves helping local Atlanta natives enjoy their Thanksgiving as well. So, we here at iHipHop decided we’d attempt to dispel the myths of rappers being careless and lazy, and showcase their good deeds, by assembling a picture slideshow of them giving back on Thanksgiving. Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving!
Sadly this song could not come at a more unfortunate time for Waka Flocka Flame seeing as he was recently arrested for attempting to board an airplane with a loaded handgun. Waka’s lifestyle choice cost him and as a result he’s sitting in a county jail. But that hasn’t stopped Waka or his management from dropping a new Flock remix of Rich Gang’s hugely successful smash “Lifestyle”. Listen after the jump.
Waka’s been dropping some heat lately. As part of his I Can’t Rap series, Waka has been releasing new freestyles and today we have another one for you. This time around we find Waka Flocka Flame freestyling over Yo Gotti’s “Fu*k You”. Check it out after the jump.
Can’t pay your bills? Rent due? Late on your child support? Need money for the new iPhone 6? Don’t fret, Waka Flocka has you covered. If you can roll blunts.

The summer smash “No Flex Zone” by Rae Sremmurd has been remixed to death. However, one very notable person was conspicuously missing from the fray. Despite hinting at a remix of the song way back in July, Waka Flocka Flame has finally decided to drop it in September. Maybe that’s a good thing seeing as fall is here and we need that heat. Peep Waka’s remix of “No Flex Zone” after the jump.
Pretty sure the number of stabbings just increased with the release of this joint.
