MAG SCANS: Waka Flocka covers SPIN Magazine [VIDEO]

Waka Flocka Flame is upside down on the cover of SPIN Magazine's May/June issue. The 25-year-old Atlanta rapper is the couldn't-be-more-perfect face of our first-ever Loud Issue, dedicated to all things enjoyably and compellingly disruptive. 

Not just because of his blaring dreadlocks or booming sonics or growled hooks, but — as writer Julianne Escobedo Shepherd discovers during a whirlwind international adventure — he's a character at a moment when that quality seems at a premium.

 And while he's on the cusp of mega stardom, flying to Paris at a moment's notice when Kanye beckons, he's held in check by two personal tragedies, even if you couldn't tell from his fun-loving, club-destroying image. "I'm 25, but I got an old man's soul," he says. "I just know how to camouflage it."  

Check out Waka showing a bit of his funny side in the below clip!
