Waka Flocka Flame Is Fired Up

Written by PETA | March 8, 2011

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame keeps it cool in the studio, churning out rhymes, but if there’s one thing that gets him hot under the collar, it’s animal abuse. After seeing PETA’s video about fur farms, he knew that he wanted to be the next face (and a lot more) of our “Ink, Not Mink” campaign.

Waka urges the hip-hop community to “understand what you buy.” The musician couldn’t believe that animals killed for their fur are bludgeoned, electrocuted, and skinned alive—and that that includes dogs and cats. “I don’t want nobody to … skin my little puppy,” he said in an interview at the photo shoot. “Understand where that fox fur came from before you spend $1,000 … Someone got their head beat in and electrocuted.”

Waka Flocka Flame also calls circuses “whack” and shuns red meat after seeing how cows are slaughtered. You can see the exclusive video from his photo shoot (spoiler alert: He does a PETA rap); catch his other ad, in which he wears nothing but ice; and enter to win an autographed copy of his rockin’, flockin’ CD, Flockaveli.

And of course, to be among his flock of fans, always flee from fur

    By getting more people in the ‘main-stream’ that would definitely not typically even give a rats ass about animals, it really gets people who are into the genre thinking about animal rights as well. :) Maybe he’s not a perfect ‘role model’, but if someone with such infamy in the rap industry can give a crap about animals, so can everyone else!! Good Job Peta. (I love waka flaka anyway ahaha)

    finally!!!!! a rapper that isn’t arrogant trash and try to look hard walking around in floor length coats looking like KANYE and KELIS (VOMIT) i know he’ll probably catch a lot of flack from the rap industry for this, but i hope he knows how much this means to people like me.

  • Gala says:

    Its great that this guy cares, but who is he and why does he matter? I’ve never heard of him before.

  • steve says:

    another fine role model that peta rolls out for the world to see. it just keeps chipping away at that so-called credibility that you think you have with the rest of the world.
