His name is what??

I was walking to class near Woodruff Park around 4, and I heard this loudspeaker click on.  It is surreal sounding – I think there has been some natural disaster, this thing is so loud.

“Garbled garbled garbled…. Walter’s….. garbled…. Downtown is secure!  Downtown is secure!”

WTF?  I mean, that’s good to know of course.  Five minutes later everyone standing outside class gets a phone call.  I check my message, and its again garbled.  A post on GSU’s website indicated that a shot had been fired near Walter’s, which is across the street from the main undergrad classroom.

It turns out that some local rapper name WAKA FLOCKA(for real!!!) got into a fight with Gucci Mane’s crew at Walter’s.  Who is Waka Flocka?

Waka Flocka, aka Juaqin Malphurs, is a member of Gucci Mane’s 1017 Brick Squad. His pseudonym alludes to the sound of cocking a semi-automatic pistol.
“Whoever he is he’s got a big swollen eye now,” [witness Patrick] Morrison said.
Oh, snap!
We joked in break between class that someone must have stepped on someone’s sneaks… we didn’t think we were that close!
