Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame was shot Tuesday in a robbery, but is not dead despite the Waka Flocka Flame dead rumors doing the rounds.
According to reports, Waka Flocka Flame (real name Juaquin Malphurs) was in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was injured in a jewelry store robbery. Flame was shopping in the store when it was held up, and was shot after refusing to hand over the jewelry he was wearing.
He did however require assistance, and was taken to Atlanta Hospital for surgery. He is in a satisfactory condition, and is expected to make a full recovery.
Although this rumor had some basis in truth (that is, he was shot) we can confirm for the record that Waka Flocka Flame is not dead…Waka Flocka Flame did not die.
