Waka Flocka Flame has had quite the career evolution. From making hits like “Hard in Da Paint” to now being a retired rapper and scholar. The dude really quit rap and got an honorary Doctorate. Moreover, there’s no denying that Waka Flocka has made a significant impact on the culture. Since being retired the 36-year-old rapper has had some time to sit and reflect on his career.
A few days ago, on April 23rd, Waka Flocka took to the internet to air some grievances. He asked Twitter, “How did I not get a grammy for no hands?” garnering many answers from fans. Waka Flocka wondering why he didn’t receive a Grammy for his 2010 anthem “No Hands” is completely valid. However, some fans had to bring the Flockaveli artist back down to Earth. One commenter noted that his Grammy loss came at the hands of Kanye “Ye” West. They said, “Prolly cuz Kanye was blocking all rap noms that year.”
Waka Flocka Asks Twitter
Although, they’re not wrong. 2010 was a big year for Ye. With works like My Beautiful Dark Fantasy, along with his collab tape with Jay-Z Watch the Throne the following year, Waka Flocka had his work cut out for him. At the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Ye earned the most nominations that year with seven and won four (sorry Waka). However, that doesn’t mean Waka Flocka wasn’t deserving of a Grammy.
