Waka Flocka Flame doesn't take unofficial national weed holiday 4/20 lightly. On April 20th, 2015, the Atlanta rapper announced his intentions to run for president. This year on the same date, he celebrated in more recreational fashion, gearing up for a sold-out show at NYC's Webster Hall by playing Grand Theft Auto and rooftop cornhole at Rockstar Games HQ, splurging at Kith in Manhattan, munching on vegan snacks, partying backstage, and, yes, inhaling copious amounts of cannabis. Rolling Stone spent all evening and night with the MC, getting an exclusive glimpse into his jovial, joint-fueled lifestyle.
