Waka Flocka Flame and the rest of Gucci Mane’s crew thought Young Jeezy’s posse dissed somebody at Walter’s and all hell broke loose.

This is a certain sign that either Atlanta is nowhere to be or that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution can’t tell its behind from a hole in the ground.

Late last week the AJC ran a breathless story about the showdown between competing hip-hoppers at Walter’s Clothing. The story said shots were fired and the store, said to be the place to spot celebreties, had to close for 30 minutes.

The AJC reporter even phoned the police to get some facts. Not many. Facts would make a story like this drop off the page. The police told the paper that there was, indeed, a fight, and that one guy, said to be a private security guard in the employ of  “a local entertainer” shot his gun.

Nobody got hit by the bullet(s). The AJC didn’t care to check out the name of the guy who fired his gun in a downtown Atlanta store. What’s important here is generating publicity for Waka Flocka Flame.

The fight might be connected, the AJC surmised, with a January incident in which Waka Flocka Flame was shot in the arm while washing his car at the Bubble Bath Car Wash. The shooter was trying to take Waka Flocka’s jewelry.

DJ Drama evidently wasn’t there, but he’d like folks to say he’s bad, too.

The AJC story is copyrighted. Why, I can’t imagine. There’s no beat and no one is going to use it on a mixtape.
