Exclusive: How Waka Flocka Flame Changed This Woman’s Life

Published

on

Waka Flocka is one hell of a guy … after tweeting his support for Amanda Bynes just last week, it seems he’s also managed to make another lady smile via Twitter.

A few days ago, a social media communications advisor from South Florida posted an article about how the rapper changed her life. Long story short, the 52 year-old began following the rapper on Twitter and quickly discovered an affinity for his music. When Waka came into town for a show, she told her then husband that she was going no matter what … which led to the end of her marriage and the reinvention of herself.

HipHollywood spoke exclusively to Diane D, author of the blog Deep Commotion, about the crazy story. The now happily divorced rap enthusiast told us that Waka’s show was “very high intensity” and she was surprised by the diversity of the crowd. “He appeals to so many people, the crowd was full of 40-60 year olds. I even saw a preppy, yuppie couple in their 30’s dressed up in button downs. I fit right in and was right there rappin’ along, I didn’t know every word, but I knew enough.”

Diane paid an extra $30 for a special backstage meet and greet after the show. When it was her turn to meet Waka her life was changed forever. “ I told him how I messaged him on Twitter. He looked at me and said, Yeah, I know you, you said you was comin. I have to admit, to have him remember me, a 52 year-old white woman out of all his Twitter followers, that was pretty awesome.”

While snapping two quick pictures with the rapper, which we have exclusively, she gave Waka some advice… “I told him to go get some hot tea for his throat and we both laughed. He’s a real screamer when he raps. He needs to take care of himself!”

The blogger says the best thing about all of this was not only her divorce, but also the fact that it’s given her real creditability. “It opened up a whole new world for me. Now I have young rap talent sending me their music and have come into contact with so many others. Even Sean Paul follows me, it’s great.”

Diane had another special message for Waka regarding the announcement of his recent engagement. “I would tell him that he’s one of the smartest business men I know, and one of the most talented rap artists. I’m sure he made a great a choice for his fiancée.”

How sweet!

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

on

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
