Waka Flocka Flame Running for US President 8 Years Too Soon

By    |   Wednesday, 22 Apr 2015 12:46 PM

Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame is running for president and his announcement in a video posted on YouTube by Rolling Stone magazine has received more than 500,000 views since Monday.

Waka Flocka Flame, whose real name is Juaquin James Malphurs, may have a little trouble getting on the ballot, though, because he is 28 and the legal age to run for president of the United States is 35, HLN pointed out.

Still, Waka Flocka Flame makes his case in the video, saying that he would legalize marijuana, outlaw dogs at restaurants, not allow people with size 13 shoes and above to walk in public, and declare that all fast food workers should make $15 an hour.



The New York City-born rapper, who also appeared on the VH1 reality show "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta," said he wouldn't have to worry about getting Congress to pass any of his measures.

"F*** the Congress," he say in the Rolling Stone video. "What are we thinking about? I am Congress. I'm the president."

It's that kind of thinking that left many on social media with mixed feeling about the hip-hop artist running for president, to say the least.
