Here is Waka Flocka Flame reading ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey,’ just because.

Fifty Shades Of Grey hit theaters over last weekend, making waves all over the world, for better or for worse.

This extends to hip-hop: the magazine XXL asked Waka Flocka Flame to read an excerpt from the novel, and he was more than happy to oblige.

Although Flocka was not initially familiar with the novel or its theme, he quickly finds himself drawn into its atmospheric tone and subtle critique of romance in the age of late capitalism. So much so, that he can”t help shouting “pause!” as he reads a scene describing the protagonists” foreplay.

Soon after he has to put the book down; it”s become all too real.

“This book is for grown people, man!” he shouts, jumping out of his seat. “I gotta get this book.”

When Flocka finds out that a movie adaptation is imminent, his weekend plans change immediately: “It got a movie coming out tomorrow? I gotta see this in a movie, eating popcorn!” he exclaims.
