Waka Flocka Flame Drops ‘Lifestyle’ (Remix), Mom Explains Arrest
After his arrest for gun possession on Friday (Oct. 10), Waka Flocka Flame released a remix to Rich Gang's infectious hit 'Lifestyle.'
On the song, the Atlanta rhymer raps celebratory lyrics of his fame and riches. Although Waka does offer words of encouragement to those who are living in the struggle.
"This one for public houses and the trailer parks / Do your part, stay smart don't let the struggle break your heart," he raps. "Gas up / And pass it around the world / Take care of your fam, kids, and your girl. Now that’s gangsta.”
Meanwhile, Waka's momager, Debra Antney, called her son's arrest for gun possession an accident.
As we previously reported, the Brick Squad leader was taken into custody at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport after TSA discovered a handgun in his carry-on bag. Waka did not have a weapons permit and was arrested and charged with carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.
TSA later posted a photo of the purported gun to Instagram (see below). According to the caption, Waka's alleged weapon was a loaded 5.7X28mm pistol. Yikes!
Antey told TMZ that the incident was a big mistake. Apparently, Waka grabbed his fiance's bag, which contained the gun. The couple is in the process of moving and their stuff got mixed up, which is how the gun ended up in his possession.
We have to ask -- why is Tammy Rivera packing heat?
