‘Baracka Flacka’ Spoof Deemed Disrespectful by Waka Flocka Flame
In a recent expose in the New York Times, Atlanta rapper Wacka Flocka Flame revealed that he isn’t a fan of the new “Head of State” parody video, which spoofs his popular street anthem ‘Hard in the Paint.’ But that would make him the only one.
The viral hit video finds comedian Jason Davis decked out as President Obama — “Baracka Flacka Flames” — spitting his humorous rendition of Wacka Flocka’s hit song. Along with look-a-likes of First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and even a few Secret Service impersonators, Baracka Flacka lets loose a few verses about his money, power, fame, set to the backdrop of a Southern porch — Wacka Flocka style.
Unfortunately, Waka Flocka didn’t find the video to be as hilarious as the million plus people who’ve viewed in since its debut. “That they used it to be so sarcastic, it was almost a form of disrespect,” Waka Flocka told the Times. “That’s not a positive image for us, period, as African-Americans, where we came from, where we’re going today,” his mom, and manager, Debra Antney chimed in.
