The Evolution of Waka Flocka Flame

How did Waka Flocka Flame get one of the funniest, most distinctive names in hip hop history? The name Waka was given to him by his cousin after the Muppets character Fozzie Bear's famous catchphrase, "Waka-waka." Meanwhile, Gucci Mane, who took Waka under his wing when he began rapping, bestowed him with "Flocka Flame."
