Waka Flocka Turns Taxpaying Status Into A Vote

Waka Flocka Flame is taking a more self-confident stance this time around when asked about voting. While in 2010 he managed only to utter “Voting good” to BET’s 106 & Park, this Fall, Waka Flocka, real name Juaquin Malphurs, has put his declaration into practice and cast his vote early for the re-election of President Barack Obama.

Malphurs readily admitted his inexperience to Hot 97 as a first time voter but said that “you got to vote for the right guy. They say every vote counts, I had to make sure mines did.”

“Not trying to be hard, not trying to be tough, but if you’re from the streets, how can voting help your life? How can tax dollars help your life?…taxes, medical, insurances, you don’t need none of that.” He explained that a change came when the upward trajectory of his rap career allowed him to make six-figures in tax payments. Even though a Democratic win would result in his paying a higher percentage under their graduated income tax platform, Malphurs was happy to oblige. “When you start living like a civilized person, you got to follow the rules.”

    Waka Flocka, WHAT?! And we’re suppose to care what he says because…? He’s contradicting himself right off the bat: “you got to vote for the right guy. They say every vote counts, I had to make sure mines did.” No Waka Flocka.. You surely did not vote for the right guy. If to many people are smoke’n the same stuff you were smoking when your came up with that stage name, we’re all screwed…
