Waka Flocka Flame To Host Anti-Violence Concert In Chicago

Waka Flocka Flame joins forces with United In Peace Inc. to help curb shootings in Chicago.

Waka Flocka Flame is slated to host a Chicago anti-violence concert, which will be held the first week of June at an undisclosed venue. The goal of the United In Peace INC. and Waka Flocka Flame concert is to help curb the shootings and murders that have taken place in Chi-Town during the last few years.

“Senseless acts of violence [are] happening all over the world, but it starts with us acknowledging the acts now,” Waka Flocka Flame says in a press release. "Chicago is the first but not the last for me."

All proceeds from the anti-violence concert will be given to the United In Peace, INC. organization, which is helmed by Wallace "Gator" Bradley, a former gang enforcer and self-proclaimed urban translator. They are also planning to tour four Chicago-area high schools (Phillips, Du Sable, Fenger and Harper), Chicago State University and Washington Elementary School in Riverdale, Illinois in order to spread a message of peace.

Waka Flocka Flame has been a spokesperson for other philanthropic causes, including PETA.

    In Wacka defense though he has a couple songs of his new mixtape he could perform that wouldn't make him seem like too much of an hypocrite, that is some of the best music I have heard him make. Type in Wacka Flocka - Interlude on youtube then check out his song smile. bruhh has actually improved as a rapper and I can respect that.

    Yes folks believe it or not gang members and shooters want a better and safer world to live in too. Think about it, why wouldn't the people who have lost friends and family to the same type of violence they themselves have been a part of not want it to change. Plus Waka's already been popped, so I can believe that niguh wants the violence stopped

    So you're telling me the guy whose lyrics include lines such as; "When my lil brotha died i said FUCK school I picked the burnin log and i got some marijuana 2 years later screamin out you don't wana Glock 9 to SK if you want to beef" And I'm sure he has countless other songs with gun talk, this is the guy they let host a peace convention? Seriously? What is with all the hypocrisy in hip hop? You have Reebok dropping Rick Ross because of a rape lyric but you don't say anything about how he raps about guns, drugs and other typical gangsta rap shit? Rape's not ok but those things are? What the fuck

    His type of music started this stuff! 14-15 yr old kids with guns. It's ridiculous. Change your message, that will do a hell of alot more than a peace rally.

  • Sincere
    Damn chicago isn't the only city with violence many other inner cities need help too shit.
  • IMhO
    LMAOOO! how are you gonna have an anti violence rally with a rapper who does nothin but spit about drugs, shootings, sex, partying, killing people LMAO thats like me saying fuck cops ihate em there all POS and going to a rally to support cops?!? rappers and anti violence rallies shouldnt be in the same sentence
    • co sign
      Dumb asses lol. that's what I'm sayin
    • k..
      Not exactly true tho. Talib Kweli, Lecrae, Common, etc. They could identify w/ the message of the concert, but I'm from Chicago, and how many of these kids would go to that show? Flocka don't have 1 song in his catalog suitable for this show(and I listen to some of his stuff), but the kids will listen to him. So I guess the point gets across if after playing a super-edited version of Rooster in my Rari he throws in positive messages between songs.
    • IMhO
      @k.. - yeha thats true but i consider them hiphop not rappers..i know you wouldnt know that but i seperate the to in my head.. rappers are the bubble gum fucks, rap aboutbullshit and have 0 lyrical ability.. hiphopers and emcees are ppl like you mentioned
