NEWSFLASH! Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame (formerly of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta) is apparently ditching the Republican party.
It was just last November that Waka was roasted online for publicly supporting Republican David Perdue for U.S. Senate in Georgia last year (click HERE if you missed that).
A few months after that melee, the popular rapper also announced a marijuana-influenced presidential campaign.
Welp… it appears both of Waka’s political efforts have fallen victim to Waka’s short-term memory loss in that now he’s a Democrat offering support to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Details about Waka’s change of heart below…
According to the AJC, Waka is backing Democrat Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, despite supporting Republican David Perdue for U.S. Senate in Georgia last year.
In an interview last month with MTV, picked up today by CNN in a piece about rappers flocking to Clinton, Flame backed the former first lady and offered his take on a woman in the white house, stating:
“A woman could do it,” Waka said. “I’ve seen my momma raise five boys – that’s super hard, so women can do the same [stuff] that men could do.”
“We need change,” he added.
When asked if he’d help Hillary with her campaign, he just had one stipulation. “She should help me with my album. If she gon’ push Flockavelli 2 — I can’t wait.”
CNN pointed out that 50 Cent, Ja Rule and Snoop Dogg also are on Team Clinton.
