The Things I Carry: Waka Flocka Flame W/ The FADER


Ever wondered what Brick Squad Monopoly recording artist and CEO Waka Flocka Flame (How Come Waka Flocka Flame Doesn’t Wear Fur?) keeps on him at all times? Well The FADER Magazine (The FADER Fall Fashion Issue) got the opportunity to find out. Following his highly publicized feud with former boss Gucci Mane (Gucci Mane Squares Up In Lenox Square Mall In ATL), a more mature polished Waka was preparing to head off on tour with Grammy nominated American electro house musician Steve Aoki. Before hitting the road, he decided to stop by the lifestyle magazines New York office and allow photo editor Geordie Wood to dig deep.

Before heading out on what he described as a sure-to-be “weird” tour with Steve Aoki, Waka Flocka stopped by FADER offices. Photo editor Geordie Wood snapped a few portraits of Waka, then Waka emptied his pockets, revealing brass knuckles, some out-of-wallet twenties and a couple pieces of Halloween candy. He took off his ring and threw it on the table to be photographed too, saying, “You should own jewelry, jewelry shouldn’t own you.” – NAOMI ZEICHNER
