Waka Flocka Flame Surrenders, Hearing Date Set

January 4, 2011 (7:49 am) GMT
The rapper, who was held on drug charges among others, wanted to do the right thing by giving in to the police.

Rap star has surrendered to police in Georgia after a heart to heart chat with his mum. The "Onion Booty" hitmaker, real name Juaquin Malphurs, is being held on charges including drug and weapons possession as well as criminal street gang activity and a probation violation.

Henry County police arrested two people at Waka Flocka's home for possession of marijuana last month. Police issued a warrant for his arrest because he was not home at the time. His friend and associate was briefly handcuffed during the raid.

Flocka's mum tells TMZ.com her son surrendered to the authorities because "he wanted to do the right thing and didn't want to run." A hearing is set for Tuesday, January 4.
