Waka Flocka Flame is geared up to host a Chicago anti-violence concert, which will take place the first week of June at an currently undisclosed venue. The goal of the United In Peace INC. and Waka Flocka Flame concert is to help reduce the shootings and murders that have occured in Chicago during the last few years.
“Senseless acts of violence [are] happening all over the world, but it starts with us acknowledging the acts now,” Waka Flocka Flame says in a press release. “Chicago is the first but not the last for me.”
All earnings from the anti-violence concert will be donated to the United In Peace, INC. organization, which is helmed by Wallace “Gator” Bradley, a former gang enforcer and self-proclaimed urban translator. They are also making preparations to tour four Chicago-area high schools (Phillips, Du Sable, Fenger and Harper), Chicago State University and Washington Elementary School in Riverdale, Illinois in order to widen the message of peace.
Waka Flocka Flame has been a spokesperson for other philanthropic causes, including PETA.
