Waka Flocka

Gunshots Fired

at Tour Bus

2/16/2011 8:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Waka Flocka dodged multiple bullets today during a gun battle in Charlotte, NC ... according to eyewitnesses.

Waka Flocka Shooting
We're told Waka -- real name Juaquin Malphurs -- was on his tour bus outside a car stereo shop when two cars pulled up next to the bus and opened fire. Waka was not hit.

An eyewitness tells us Waka's security team returned fire on the cars and hit at least one of them. Waka's publicist confirms his security team fired shots -- and says the bus was shot 4 times.

FOXCharlotte is reporting police have detained multiple people -- and that one person was shot in the shoulder.

WCNC in Charlotte aired footage (above) of police on the scene with a man in handcuffs.

look its one of those things that nobody wants -stressing nobody- but still there is that nothing from nothing that flaunts it ---- it was fun but most rap is a self depreciating genre that was dead back in the early ninties ---- unless you like repeatitive artificial beats over being talked at ---- and if notice has been given to the "artists'" performance that whenever anybody does rap after it began to dye out how they look like they are looking to attack something ---- but then again i suppose some want that to back there lack of any of anything ----

I have been immensely entertained (awestruck) for the past year or more by following the adventures of Wacka Flocka and Gucci Mane. Unbelievable. No month goes by without one or the other of them (and usually in conjunction with one another) shooting at someone or being shot at. I can conclusively state that if I had been involved in all those altercations, I would be (a)DEAD or (b)IN JAIL.
