Waka Flocka Flame Cleared Of Drug Charges

Grand jury rules that there is not enough evidence to go to trial.

Published May 3, 2011

Waka Flocka Flame has been cleared of all charges. The rapper, whose real name is Juaquin Malphurs, was arrested and charged with drug possession after his home was raided back in December 2010. But he is not going to have to go trial, for this, at least.


A grand jury in Henry County, Georgia, ruled that there was not enough evidence against Waka to take him to trial, according to TMZ. Waka was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, but it was less than an ounce so the amount was insufficient. Also, three other charges, including weapons possession, suspicion of criminal street gang activity, and traffic and probation violations, were dropped.


Waka celebrated his "freedom" on twitter yesterday. The Atlanta-based rapper tweeted, "All charges droped from when police ran N my house #GoDsGooD #squad."
