Get ready to turn up the heat as the annual QC Student Association concert returns with the one and only Waka Flocka Flame! Join us for an epic night of hip-hop greatness as this legendary artist takes the KCA stage to bring the house down. Waka Flocka Flame is known for his high-energy performances and electrifying beats, and this event promises to be no exception.
Born Juaquin James Malphurs, the global icon and rapper more commonly known as Waka Flocka Flame. Waka is known for putting trap back on the map, dropping the first volume of his street classic Salute Me or Shoot Me that caught fire with songs, “We On The Way,” “Dreads N Gold” and his breakout single “O Let’s Do it.” The mixtape’s buzz allowed Waka to release his proper debut Flockaveli, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 100.
With many platinum signature hit records including “No hands” and “Wild Boy” there’s a high chance Waka’s music will be played at your party. With Flockaveli 2 People can only come to expect the same energy that Waka always brings to the party. His epic touring and performance style are some of the reasons he’s earned the nickname “Turn Up God.” A style that translates into the EDM world Waka also calls his second home now, he fell in the love with the genre during a tour in Europe a few years ago. “Music is like anger management,” he says. “It’s fun. You get to express yourself.” Waka Flocka is looking forward and ready to express a new musical direction with Flockaveli II.
