Waka Flocka Flame's Mom Denies Being a Pimp
Flamboyant rap star Gucci Mane (see yesterday's awesome list) and his "associate" Waka Flocka Flame (who maybe is a novelty rapper, maybe not, we don't know, maybe the joke's on us, maybe not) are both managed by Waka Flocka Flame's mom, a lady by the name of Deb Antney. Today, ATL police barged into her house "in a country club," according to her, and apparently accused her of being notorious prostitution ringleader "the Candy Lady." "Of course I'm not gonna sit back and be called 'the Candy Lady,' " Waka Flocka Flame's mom told MTV News. "There was no prostitution. And we're not gang-affiliated." The report is kind of awesome:
According to MTV News:
A home occupied by Waka Flocka Flame was raided by Atlanta authorities Thursday (December 16), and the rapper's associate, Gucci Mane, and his manager and mother, Deb Antney, were detained as police searched the premises.
No formal charges were filed, but a TMZ report suggested that the investigation centered on prostitution.
Antney staunchly denied that allegation when MTV News spoke with her Thursday (December 16); according to various reports, weapons and drugs were also found on the scene.
"It had nothing to do with prostitution," Antney told MTV News. "The weapons they found were licensed weapons. There was under an ounce of marijuana, but it was nothing but a blunt. The other drugs were medication that was in Waka's room from when he got hurt," Antney said, referring to Waka Flocka Flame's February shooting. [...]
Antney, who heads up Mizay Entertainment, was frustrated because her company is scheduled to host a toy drive Thursday. She said when she arrived on the scene, police called her "the Candy Lady" and suggested she was the ring leader of the prostitution operation.
