Looking for a job with some benefits? Waka Flocka Flame has you covered.
The rapper posted via his Instagram that he’s currently in search of a “blunt roller” to assist him in marijuana related endeavors, and he’s willing to pay a $50,000 per year salary for the special personal assistant. Waka instructed all interested applicants to respond to him on social media using the hashtag “#ICANROLL”, and Twitter was soon overloaded with fans responding to the Love & Hip Hop star, posting pictures of their “resumes” and stating their cases.
Soon after the picture was posted, the applications began pouring in and the post received over 14,000 replies. Even comedian Seth Rogen decided to throw his name in the hat for the job. Rogen tweeted at Waka Flocka Flame with a simple “hit me up.”

Waka and his management later contacted the Huffington Post with news that the gig had been filled by none other than Rogen. “Waka Flocka has since hired Seth Rogen,” the star’s manager Brick Bronson said. “However, if he doesn’t adhere to his day-to-day responsibilities, I’ll fire him and hire James Franco.”
The New York born hip-hop giant seemed confident that the Knocked Up star was the man for the job. “Waka Flocka and 36Brickhouse will no longer be accepting applicants for the specified job listing for ‘Personal Blunt Roller,’ as Seth Rogen has been hired to fill this position,” Waka said. “His experience both on and off camera has earned this funnyman a slot with squad, eh.#icanROLL”
The hashtag for the job opening cleverly coincides with Waka’s newly released I Can’t Rap Vol. 1 mixtape, and the buzz comes just as the “No Hands” rapper preps a proper new studio album. Flocka and his girlfriend Tammy Rivera star in the VH1 series Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
Late last year, the Atlanta, GA based artist made headlines when his brother Kayo Redd, also a rapper, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The rapper was reportedly despondent upon hearing the news of his brother’s death, which came not long after close friend and rapper Slim Dunkin was killed in a shooting.
While it’s safe to say that Seth Rogen likely won’t actually be rolling blunts for Waka Flocka on a regular basis, there’s no word on whether or not the position is in fact a legitimate job offer and if someone out there will indeed be the lucky employee.
