Could you imagine an event with EDM and hip hop all in one? Thankfully it’s 2013 and the team and I got to catch the the Aokify America Tour kickoff at the UIC Pavilion which features Steve Aoki, Waka Flocka, Pharrell and Borgore. The crowd was energetic and ready for the Friday night which brought nothing but entertainment, crowd surfing and dancing.
The event began the right way, with a performance from Waka Flocka. After Waka’s set where the crowd cheered and sang along, we caught the humble rapper backstage. His dressing room was filled with friends and good vibes who came out to support Waka’s first performance back in the states after touring Europe. Getting comfy on the couch, we sat and chatted about more than just his upcoming works. Waka takes a seat with an open mind, ready to talk about anything and everything. He let’s loose and tells us about what’s in his journal(s), his From Roaches to Rollies (hosted by DJ Scream) mixtape and inspirations growing up in a household filled with 30 people. Blessed and successful at age 27, Waka has a lot more in store for him when it comes to making music and reaching his goals and dreams. Sit back and enjoy the exclusive chat with Waka Flocka and keep a look out for more from the American rapper.
