Waka Flocka Flame coming to the Ritz Ybor in Tampa




According to his website, Waka Flocka Flame is coming to Tampa Bay. One guess as to where he's performing.

Yep: The Ritz Ybor.

The club is absolutely owning the local hip-hop concert scene right now, with upcoming shows by Kendrick Lamar, A$ap Rocky, Big K.R.I.T. and Die Antwoord on the docket. But landing Spin cover boy Waka, who's having a blockbuster year thanks to hit single Hard In Da Paint, might be the biggest coup yet, at least commercially.

Waka will perform at the Ritz on Nov. 15. Joining his "Friends, Fans and Family World Tour" is Wooh Da Kid. Ticket prices are not yet listed on Ticketmaster or, but are slated to go onsale Friday. (That's the same date that, according to, tickets to Waka's Nov. 13 gig at Orlando's Beacham Theater also go onsale.)

To help get you amped up, check out this 20-minute behind-the-scenes documentary about Waka Flocka Flame shot on the same day he performed at Wild Splash 2012 in Clearwater.
