Waka Flocka Flame Discusses Shooting

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame has addressed the last Tuesday (January 19) shooting in College Park, Georgia that left him injured.

During an interview with Atlanta radio station, Hot 107.9, Waka says that the incident was a hit and the suspect was sent to kill him, but got scared.

"I really can't breathe that good but I'll break it down right now," said Waka. "All I know is somebody was sent to kill me but he was so scared he let me get out the car - he hit me in my arm - trust me, he could have did his job. That's the word out to him and his people. I'm straight though, I just broke one of my ribs - I'll be out there. Shout out to everybody that's been hating on me."

So Icey associate DJ Holiday explained to XXL the extent of Waka's injuries last Thursday (January 21) and said that the 23-year-old rapper, whose real name is Juaqin Malphurs, is making good progress.

"He got shot in the arm and the other one hit him in the shoulder and it moved around and hit him [near his] lung...so he has a hard time breathing and moving. The bullet is lodged on the right side of his chest up under his arm, and that's where the most trauma was. He is a tough dude, [and] he makes jokes about it."

Waka was shot early Tuesday afternoon while at a Carwash on Old National Highway in College Park, GA by an unidentified assailant in what was initially thought to be a botched robbery.
