Waka Flocka Flame 

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame started a new wave in hip hop, giving his fans crunk music and something to bounce to. Ever since Waka hit the scene there has been nothing but dread shaking and head bobbin’ up in the nightclubs. He has build up a reputation and now everyone knows him for his street style, tats and chains. With the help of PETA, Waka Flocka Flame got the chance to share with his fans a more vulnerable side of him.

Watch this exclusive behind-the-scenes video from Waka Flocka Flame’s “Ink, Not Mink” photo shoot to learn more about why he refuses to wear fur. Then enter to win a copy of Waka Flocka Flame’s debut album, Flockaveli—autographed by Waka himself!


In the newest PETA campaign, Waka got to show his love for animals and gives a shout out to all the helpless fuzzy animals who are killed for their fur.

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame joined in on PETA’s “Ink, Not Mink” campaign in effort to reach the audience; he even went bare to help save animals, who do not get a choice in shedding theirs.

In previous years, the Hip Hop Community as well as the fashion industry as a whole has been criticized of killing animals to produce fur just to make a fashion statement. Although the days of mink wearing men and woman are close to an end, Waka wants the hip hop community to know that “[fur] is nasty!” and we, as a whole, need to understand what we are purchasing.

“Damn…electrocuting and killing animals?” states Waka. How would you feel if your or a family member was a victim of being stomped, electrocuted or skinned alive? If the shoe was on the other foot, there would be protest all across the country, but instead harmless animals, who do not have a voice, suffer from treacherous torment.

Take a moment to travel back in time to the days when African American men and woman, as well as other minorities, were beaten, hung and electrocuted. Our ancestors were the prime victims in crimes of hatred. Similar to harmless animals, minorities did not have a voice, but now that our voices can be heard its time to speak up.

The next time you are in a department store, opt for a faux fur version of your favorite jacket. Little steps are all it takes to progress towards a better future.
