Waka Flocka gets rewarded in his hometown from the former president.
Donald Trump despite his antics that has caused some in the African American community to dislike him, he does seem to have an affiliation with some of the biggest rap names in the business. The former President of The United States did grant clemency to both Kodak Black and Lil Wayne, allowing them to be released from their federal prison sentences. Now the hip hop artist known as Waka Flocka, is receiving an accolade from Trump for his stellar achievements.
As reported by TMZ, Trump recognized the rapper in his hometown in honor of his charity work with a lifetime achievement award. The award is particularly in honor of his work as a humanitarian and philanthropic volunteer for the Daughter of Destiny non-profit in Chicago.
The Atlanta rapper got the award Friday (April 16) in his city that was presented by his pastor and mentor Apostle Bridget Outlaw, who gave him an official certificate and medal.
The non-profit that Waka volunteers for is an outreach program dedicated to helping women by offering employment, food, housing, community, and inner healing. The certificate recognizes Waka specifically for his “lifelong commitment to building a stronger nation through volunteer service.”
