Waka Flocka brought in his 36th birthday with two celebrations as he was also awarded an honorary professor degree in Humanitarianism and Philanthropy from the Bible Institute of America, TMZ reports.
“I remember at 26 i made a promise to God to stop taking xpills, stop drinking lean and start cleaning out my heart 10 yrs later i’m 36 with degrees, a daughter , financially free, and a lot of people that look up to me shawty i’m beyond grateful…. i been preparing my whole life for what’s about to happen.

Flocka Joined By Jesse Jackson
Flocka was also joined by Jesse Jackson who paid homage to his contributions at Rainbow Push Headquarters in Chicago.
“Today, I was overjoyed, humbled and glad to be honored by a community-based seminary whom we have worked with down through the years and know what we do. I was also pleased to be honored with WAKA Flocka. His entrepreneurial abilities are beyond his age. To be with him was a great lift of spirits,” Jesse Jackson said, according to TMZ.
Next up: Harvard University?
The achievement marks the second for Dr. Flocka who previously earned an honorary doctorate in 2020. Flocka’s latest feat will permit him to become a university professor. Apostle Bridget C. Outlaw, Flocka’s educator, also alluded the rapper could even teach at Harvard University.
“I never listened to his music. When I first met him through my younger brother, I wasn’t impressed. He already knows the story. But, something about Dr. Waka started to put an impression on my heart because not only is he a philosopher, he will be one of the greatest professors that Harvard University has ever seen,” Outlaw said, according to AllHipHop.
