Waka Flocka, who previously obtained an honorary doctorate in October 2020, now has the opportunity to teach at a university. Waka Flocka Flame was honored by Reverend Jesse Jackson, who praised his “entrepreneurial abilities.” The rapper’s teacher was equally complimentary of her pupil saying that he is not only one of this century’s finest thinkers but also this generation likes his music.
