Although born in a neighborhood of Queens, he moved to Riverdale with his family and settled there. With his family being involved in the rapping business, it’s no wonder why Waka Flocka Flame chose to try out that branch of entertainment. He made his debut with the mixtape entitled ‘’Salute Me or Shoot Me’’ in early 2009, and, continuing to work at a hard pace, released five more mixtapes during the same year, most importantly ‘’LeBron Flocka James’’ and ‘’True Blood’’.
