Waka Flocka graduated from the Bible Institute of America with an honorary professor degree in Humanitarianism and Philanthropy.

Graduating alongside civil rights leader Reverend Jesse Jackson at the Rainbow Push Headquarters in Chicago, Waka brought in his 36th birthday in high-class fashion.

“Today, I was overjoyed, humbled, and glad to be honored by a community-based seminary whom we have worked with down through the years and know what we do,” Jackson told TMZ.

“I was also pleased to be honored with WAKA Flocka. His entrepreneurial abilities are beyond his age. To be with him was a great lift of spirits,” Jackson said.

In Oct. 2020, the Atlanta rapper received an honorary doctorate in Philanthropy and Humanitarianism in New York.

Wocka Flocka has dedicated his life to suicide prevention and spreading the message of suicide helplines since the death of his younger brother, rapper Kayo Redd, in 2013.

“I’m officially dedicating my life to suicide prevention and mental illness!!!” Waka tweeted. “Y’all not alone Waka Flocka Flame is with y’all now!!!!”

In an interview with VICE in 2017, Waka Flocka expressed that having a busy schedule and not being accessible to his 22-year-old brother had resulted in guilt stirring inside of him following his brother’s suicide.

“Before my little brother killed himself, I ain’t pick up the phone,” Waka told VICE. “I seen him call. I was like, ‘Fu*k, let me call KayO back as soon as this is over with. I call him back, no answer.”

“I don’t know who else he called, but what if I had picked that call up?” Waka said. “That’s when I said like, ‘This rap sh*t, fu*k this rap sh*t.’ I’m tryna work so much to keep everybody happy when reality was going by. What the fu*k was my little brother going through to kill his self? God damn, that’s how stressful this sh*t is? That crazy? What he had to go through, to be Waka Flocka’s little brother… and how am I that busy that I couldn’t recognize that?,” he added.

 

Wocka Flocka now holds the titles of DR. and Professor. Congratulations to him!.
