President Barack Obama isn’t Black enough – Waka Flocka

Waka Flocka Flame, the American gangster rapper from Atlanta, Georgia, has said that America’s first black president Barack Obama isn’t black enough.

The budding rapper who’s known for hit singles like “O Let’s Do It”, “Hard in da Paint” and “No Hands”, says America’s first Black president “needs to work on his level of blackness”.

Waka Flocka, real names Juaquin James Malphurs, made his comments via Twitter on Tuesday. He wrote:

“Can’t wait to see the day America gets a real black president because Obama don’t count!!!!!!…”

However, his heartfelt comments backfired as fans reacted to what they saw as unnecessary, biased and insulting statements against Obama.

The 30-year-old rapper was then forced to defend himself for his choice of words. He explained in detail with the post below.


A large majority of Flocka’s fan were outraged with his comments notwithstanding the explanations he posted to calm the situation.

And one of his followers who wasn’t yet satisfied with Flocka’s apologies, wrote:


Juaquin Malphurs was born in South Jamaica, Queens, New York, in 1986.

The rapper’s family reportedly settled in Riverdale, Georgia. His mom, Debra Antney, is rapper Gucci Mane‘s former manager and CEO of So Icey/Mizay Entertainment.

According to reports, “Waka” was given to him by his cousin, after the Muppets character Fozzie Bear‘s catch phrase, “Waka Waka”.

The name “Flocka Flame” was given to him by rapper Gucci Mane, who he said, has been a close pal since his 19th birthday.

One thought on “President Barack Obama isn’t Black enough – Waka Flocka

  1. Obama remains one of the best BLACK presidents ever in the history of America. He stood up for all races, gender and most remarkably, the oppressed.
