Meanwhile, Waka Flocka Flame says he’s ready to retire from the rap game and spend more time with his wife, Tammy Rivera — and TMZ reports that a baby could be coming sooner than later.

When the Atlanta MC sat down with Raquel Harper of “Raq Rants,” he explained why he’s hanging up the mic.

“I been gave it up,” he told Harper. “Ask my wife. … I don’t wanna rap. I did what I came to do. I made past 30 million dollars, everybody that I started with is rich, everybody’s happy, everybody’s got kids. I don’t have nothing else left to do.”

He added, “My right hand man that was running the streets with me is a pastor, life changed! People want me to be ‘Hard in da Paint’ Waka, but I’m 32 years old, I’m a grown ass man.”

Well, there is one thing left on Waka’s bucket list … a baby.

Check out the clip above to see when he and Tammy plan on adding a new addition to their family.

“Raq Rants” airs Tuesday at 11 PM on BET. On the West Coast, if you have Dish or Direct TV, it’s on at 8 PM.
