In a heartfelt Instagram Story posted on Thursday, January 18, Waka Flocka Flame addressed the challenges he encounters when trying to be open about his joy.
The artist expressed his frustration at having to conceal his happiness, acknowledging that while he is resilient, the situation is emotionally challenging.
“one of the toughest pills for me to swallow in life for me is i gotta hide my happiness… man i’m built for it but this shit stinging,” he shared.
