An upside down Waka Flocka Flame covers the May/June issue of SPIN, for their first-ever Loud Issue, "dedicated to all things enjoyably and compellingly disruptive."

For the cover story, writer Julianne Escobedo Shepherd embarked on a "whirlwind international adventure," seeking to investigate the man behind the "fun-loving, club-destroying image."

"I'm 25, but I got an old man's soul," Waka reveals. "I just know how to camouflage it."

The Brick Squad MC also discusses his broad-ranging appeal. "I can't clock into just one group of people ever in my life," he says. "When I was younger, I hung with nerds, thugs, basketball players, a lot of girls. But none of the different crowds knew [about the others]. I'm kinda all those things."

Below, check out a behind-the-scenes video where Waka takes over SPIN, regurgitates money, smacks an open hummus container on Chris Weingarten's bald dome, makes it rain, smokes a steady stream of blunts and disregards fire safety.
