Rapper Waka Flocka Flames was released from prison earlier this evening (January 5th), stemming from a raid on his home on last week.
The rapper posted a $40,000 bond and was released from the Henry County Jail, after surrendering to authorities on January 3rd.
Waka Flocka was not home during the raid on his house on December 16th, which resulted in several men being detained and arrested on minor drug and gun possession charges.
Waka Flocka, born Jaquin Malphurs, was charged with various charges stemming from the raid, including marijuana and hydrocone possession, firearm possession by a felon, probation violation for driving on a suspended license and violating the state’s Anti-Gang laws.
Additionally, the latest charges have resulted in the rap star being charged with violating the terms of his previous probation, for possessing a shot gun earlier in the year.
Ted Johnson, Waka Flocka Flames’ attorney, said that the guns were found in the house were not illegal, a claim echoed by the rapper’s mother/manager.
“They found a bunch of guns and twice much of cash,” Debra Antney told AllHipHop.com short after the raid. “They found the security..his gun [he’s] licensed to carry. Waka’s security and his cousin was sleeping in the room. The door was locked and what they kicked it in for I don’t know, because if they would have asked for the code, we would have given it.”
Ms. Antney also said the media was overhyping the “raid” on the house last month.
“You put this big thing out there and start scaring sponsors,” Antney told AllHipHop.com. “It was two officers there that let us know and that s**twas bulls**t!”
