Say what you will of Waka Flocka Flame’s lyricism, or lack there of, he is still one of Rap’s most popular artists, with more hits to his name than a struggle rapper will ever create. So it should be no surprise Waka graces the cover of the June 2012 issue of XXL Magazine.

In the cover story, we find out that the “No Hands” rapper is pro-hipster.

“I’m a hipster in my own sense. My little brother’s a hipster a little. Like, he’s a real f-ckin’ hipster. Like, a rock-star hipster, so I f-ck with ’em. U grew up f-ckin’ with ’em. So it don’t matter. I’m with that. I smoke harder than them no mater what. I’m a “Flockster.”

On a more serious note, Waka talks about the murder of his friend Slim Dunkin back in December 2011.

Dunk died, I couldn’t do sh-t four months, almost five moths straight. I couldn’t stay down long forever, cause bills gotta be paid, mouths to be fed. But that sh-t took a toll on us, man. Like right now, from December to f-ckin’ April…That’s how long it took me to bounce back my ni–a. That sh-t crazy.”

This is just the latest major mag look for Waka after recently appearing on the cover of Spin Magazine and more recently Urban Ink. Not bad for an artist couldn’t make it onto any of the XXL Freshman covers. Waka’s new sophomore album, Triple F Life: Fans Friends & Family, is in stores June 12th.
