Lit Ultrabar Doesn’t Know Who Waka Flocka Is

The city of brotherly love is known mostly for anything but that, and last night the actions of a few bouncers and promoters slammed another notch in the belt of that reputation. Very few venues attract artists relevant to the national and global scene. These few have been in something of a rat race to book too many artists, packing schedules even on weeknights with big names.

Earlier this morning, Lit Ultrabar housed the after party for the Dada Compound, which featured Clockwork, 12th Planet, Henry Fong, and local act Gerad and Luvitt (resident DJs at Lit). Area Event, a promotion and marketing company based in New York City hosted both Dada events.

Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the Electric Factory got Aokified; Steve Aoki, Borgrore, and Waka Flocka stopped their bus tour in Philadelphia. Borgore called his good friend and local celebrity, Victor Niglio, on stage to play their unreleased track “Booty Monsta.” The Factory closed out around midnight, and Borgore, Waka, Niglio, and entourage and some ladies headed over to the after party, because turn down for what, right?

Turned down is more like it. When the crowd arrived at Lit Ultrabar in Waka Flocka’s tour bus, the one with his name painted on the side in gigantic letters, we’re told that the bouncers and promoters would not allow them entry. They were going to make them pay the cover charge. One of their company quoted the owner of Area Event as saying, “Who the fuck cares who Waka Flocka Flame is?

This is all odd, considering that whomever works the Lit Twitter account asked Flocka if he was coming by…


Also among their entourage was Master P’s son, Lil Romeo. Allegedly he was let in, no questions asked. I guess as the music industry goes, the velvet rope draws a very clear line between who is in and who is out. Meanwhile, Borgore returned to his own bus, livid.

Ha. Brotherly Love?


    very UN-SQUAD

    Spell check would help!

      Dude, why is everyone blaming the entire fucking city for this? It was just a couple shitty bouncers at a club. Don’t let them give our city a shittier rep because they didn’t let 2 people into a fucking club for free.

  • LitSucksAnyway

    Lol, I’d rather bite my own toenails than go to Lit anyway. Horrendously slow entry process, bouncers that can’t tell a counterfeit from an authentic ID, and bartenders too busy on their phones to tend bar. And allegedly a $50 minimum for a credit card? BRB, calling VISA.

  • Dave Pomponio

    It sounds like it was more the fault of NYC’s own Area Events, that the Lit people.

  • Dave Pomponio

    And reading one of the above posts, kind of confirms that.

  • IAmRome

    Why is everyone up in arms acting like they were denied entry? They weren’t denied, they just refused to pay the cover charge and left on their own. They weren’t playing an event there, so why should they assume they get free entry?

  • David J Ochoa

    Oh nooees. Rich people denied free entry at club! Calamity.

  • Randy

    seriously though, who fucking cares about waka flocka or borgore.. or lil romeo for that matter! theyre all a bunch of losers and lit sucks dick regardless

  • mtlgrrr

    usually when a club tweets at a huge rapper like Waka… telling him to come through, you would think that at least the cover is on the house. u fucking morons. learn something about nightlife industry.

    • khal

      Exactly. They end up looking silly, especially if the people at the door are like “who is Waka?” This ends up being one hand obviously not knowing what the other is doing… and they look silly for it.

    • chuck

      listen no one in the edm scene cares about wacka flocka, this will not hurt them, however if an edm artist gets denied that would be different

      • Nikki

        You are all idiots because borgore is an edm artist and got denied entry too

  • where’s the real music

    i agree who the fuck care about waka flocka? he’s wack anyway… idiots made him popular… you have so much money pay the cover charge like everyone else. good job guys waka is wack

  • Topp Cat

    Who’s Waca Flaka ?

  • PutItToRest

    The people at the NYC event planning company are really at fault here. I know the owners of Lit personally and spoke to them once the controversy hit. Waka Flocka and Borgore were invited to attend the after party but not with the amount of people they showed up with. Really why would they expect to get 30 people into a club for free? It’s retarded to bash a whole city over one of a million producers and a D-list rapper. Anyway, keep bashing Lit guys. No publicity is bad publicity. More people will be going to this club since this mess, guaranteed.

      who’s bashing the entire city?

      • this author sucks
