Waka Flocka Flame is running for president in 2016, and he's already establishing himself as a peacekeeper.
The Atlanta rapper had a concert at Livewire in Scottsdale last night, and a Youtube video that will just another nug in the jar for the rapper's upcoming campaign.
DJ Whoo, Flocka's DJ on the current tour, posted a video this morning of a fight that broke out at the Scottsdale show.
"Two fans started to square up in the crowd, and Waka played the role of a big brother. He stopped rapping to put the two dudes in the corner, and broke up the fight!" the DJ wrote in the description.
The video shows a security guard scrambling to control a fight as two men push around in the middle of a crowd. Flocka stands, head and shoulders above most of the audience with the mic, as dozens of cell phones and cameras snap pics of the incident.
"Y'all two motherfuckers hug!" the rapper shouts into the mic. "Hug, n****! Hug!"
The camera shakes around, but it does look like the two fighters might have listened.
"That's what the fuck I'm talking about, let's party," Flocka says, and the DJ springs into the next song.
Of course, it's too early in the campaign season to truly judge how Flocka's concert behavior will translate to the presidential campaign. But "hug it out" seems like a promising foreign relations technique.
Israel and Palestine? Hug it out.
Shiites and Sunnis? Hug, motherfuckers.
We like the sound of that.
