On Monday, April 20th, Waka Flocka Flame announced his candidacy for President of the United States in an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone. It’s only fair to say that this news took the world by storm. Millions of people were excited to see the Flockaveli rapper in the race. They called, texted, tweeted and Facebook-messaged their friends to talk about Waka’s plans. Some of them even thought he was joking.
Waka Flocka is not joking. This campaign is very real. The Atlanta native took his bid to the streets of New York City on Tuesday, introducing himself to his fellow Americans and seeking their signatures on a petition to get him on the ballot in 2016.
Within seconds of his entrance onto the pavement in midtown Manhattan, a crowd of excited onlookers formed. Waka Flocka spoke to every one of them, shaking hands and greeting babies.
Flocka is in this race to win. Your move, Ted Cruz.
