Waka Flocka Flame is an American rapper and reality TV personality whose wealth is estimated at $7 million. Waka Flocka was born Juaquin James Malphurs on May 31, 1986, in South Jamaica, Queens. His mother, Debra Antney who works as an entertainment manager raised him in Atlanta Georgia. Debra is the CEO of So Icey/Mizay Entertainment which groomed popular acts like Nicki Minaj, French Montana and Gucci Mane.

Waka at the age of 19 became close friends with Gucci Mane, who gave him the nick “Flocka Flame” which he joined with his former nickname “Waka” to form his stage name Waka Flocka Flame.

Like most rappers who grew up in the hood, Flocka has gotten on the bad side of the law more than a couple of times and has been a subject of gang violence. He was once shot twice in the arm during a robbery incidence at an Atlanta Car Wash. Also, there was a time he was arrested for possession of loaded guns and marijuana. Amidst all these however, Flocka has managed to build a lasting reputation in the global music industry while enjoying the accompanying financial benefits.

A Breakdown of His Net Worth and Earnings

The major bulk of Waka’s $7 million net worth came from his music endeavours. Having a mother who’s already established in the music industry, it was certain that Waka Flocka wasn’t going to struggle much to gain musical success.

His Earnings from Album Sales

His first single “O Let’s Do It” released in 2009 was an instant hit that peaked at #62 on the Billboard Hot 100, establishing him as a newbie to watch out for. Waka’s success continued with the release of two more singles “Hard In Da Paint” and “No Hands”.

In October 2010, he released his debut studio album Flockaveli – a combination of his name and Tupac Shakur’s pseudonym Makaveli. The album which debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the R&B/Hip Hop and Rap charts sold 375k copies in the U.S. His success in the rap scene in 2010 earned him the 8th position on MTV’s 2010 Hottest MC’s list.

His second studio album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family released on June 8, 2012, was preceded by the lead single “Round of Applause” ft rapper Drake.

Instead of using the conventional wedding rings, the couple opted to tattoo each other’s name on their ring fingers. The same year, they landed their own spinoff on VH1 titled “Meet The Flockas”, although it never aired.

Waka’s wife, Tammy is most notable for her starring role on the season 3 of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. She has also co-starred with Flocka in several other TV series including Marriage Booth Camp, Growing Up Hip Hop, and Waka & Tammy. Tammy is the owner of the swimwear line, T-Rivera.

As of 2020, Waka is yet to have a child of his own. He has however, been a proud step-father to Charlie Rivera, a daughter his wife had from a previous relationship. She was born on the 1st of July, 2005 to her father, a guy called Brian Williams.

Despite not being Charlie’s biological father, Waka took her as his very own, playing the daddy role perfectly. She has made appearances in her step-father’s tv show, Waka & Tammy: What The Flocka. She has also appeared on the red carpet with the rapper on several occasions.

Charlie turned 15 on July 1, 2020 and her parents threw her a lavish “Beauty and the Beast” party.

KayO Redd

  • Real name: Coades Scott
  • Date of birth: June 1, 1986 (died Dec. 29, 2013)

KayO was Waka’s younger brother and was also a rapper. Just like Flocka, their mum Debra also launched his music career. Unfortunately, KayO died by suicide in 2013. His lifeless body which had a self-inflicted gunshot wound was discovered close to his house after the ugly incident. Not long before he died, he released a mixtape titled Redd Kisses.

According to Flocka and Debra, KayO decided to end his life after he could no longer cope with the stress and internet trolls associated with his career. His suicidal death led to Debra’s creation of the internet movement, No RIP (Reckless Internet Posting).

Waka’s surviving (older) brothers are Tyquam Alexander and Wooh Da Kid. There are scarcely any information about Tyquam. Meanwhile, Wooh is a rapper born on February 23, 1985. He launched his music career under their mum’s label, Mizay entertainment, and is also a member of the 1017 Brick Squad.

What actually Happened between Flocka and Gucci Mane?

Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane have frequently been on the tabloids for their often rocky relationship. The duo together with other rappers Frenchie, Wooh Da Kid, and OJ Da Juiceman formed the rap group 1017 Brick Squad which was named after Gucci Mane’s label – 1017 Brick Squad Records LLC. In 2013, following a beef, Gucci dropped Waka Flocka from the label and later filed a lawsuit against Waka’s mother/his former manager, Debra Antney and many others accusing them of racketeering, fraud, and extortion. However, while the origin of their feud wasn’t known, many speculated it was a result of Gucci firing Debra Atney as his manager.

Waka Flocka

Waka and Mane, following the incident, have taken to social media to have a go at each other as well as releasing diss tracks. Although the duo appeared to have flushed the bad blood between them in 2014 following a tweet from Flocka, they still comment rather awkwardly on each other. Maybe, it would never be like old times.
