Born Juaquin James Malphurs, Waka Flocka Flame is an artist who broke the Top 20 of the Billboard R&B / hip-hop chart with 'O Let's Do It' (2009), a boisterous collaboration with producer L-Don Beatz, was one of the biggest mainstream rap breakouts of the late nineties and early 2010s. That hit resulted in a Top Ten album, Flockaveli (2010), armed with 'Hard in da Paint' and 'No Hands,' similarly rowdy and unforgettable hits that were RIAA-certified quickly.
