In the last year, Waka Flocka Flame has risen from the sidekick of Brick Squad leader Gucci Mane to a star in his own right with a string of successful singles. Now it seems that Waka is looking to pay it forward and help a young rapper get a leg up in the industry. But the twist is the Georgia emcee is planning on finding his protégé across the pond.
That’s right, Waka is searching for the UK’s best unsigned rapper. To coincide with the release of his single “No Hands” in the UK, the emcee is challenging England’s rappers to upload their own version of the track. To do so they can go to www.myspace.com/lookwakanohands and grab the instrumental version of the song and record their lyrics over it.
The winner will be selected next Wednesday, April 13th. That lucky rapper’s prize will include a single released by Warner Bros. records and an appearance on SBTV, a leading British YouTube channel.
