Global icon and rapper Waka Flocka rose to prominence in 2009. That year, Waka put rap back on the map, dropping the first volume of his street classic Salute Me or Shoot Me that caught fire with songs, “We On The Way,” “Dreads N Gold” and his breakout single “O Let’s Do it.” Together with Southside and Lex Luger’s thunderous production, Waka has helped revive street raps, and his sound began to explode in the streets and on the airwaves. Following his sudden popularity, hip-hop’s mainstream elite, including T.I., Drake and B.o.B, wanted to collaborate with Waka while he spread his influence to a host of new rappers such as Wooh Da Kid and Frenchie. On Waka and Gucci’s 2011 collaborative effort Ferrari Boyz, and 2012’s Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family, Waka’s high energy resulted in his nickname, “Turn Up God.” That style translates into the EDM world Waka fell in the love with while touring in Europe a few years ago.
“We know our attendees are going to be incredibly excited about Waka’s concert. We are thrilled to be expanding into North America and look forward to our first Atlanta event, which will launch with this performance. When you add this concert to DreamHack Atlanta’s more than $800,000 in Esports tournament prizes, live music, cosplay competition and more, DreamHack Atlanta promises to be an unforgettable experience.” DreamHack Chief Executive Officer Marcus Lindmark.
