Razorbacks Go 'Hard In The Paint' With Waka Flocka Flame

Platinum-selling rap artist, Waka Flocka Flame, visits the Razorback men's basketball team

Arkansas coach Eric Mussleman is known for his motivational tactics and never-ending imagination.

Hogs fans have grown fond of his creative pre-game speeches, social media presence, and his overall passion for the Razorbacks. 

Players and staff alike never know what to expect when their energetic leader has a new idea. There is never a dull moment with Muss.

Mussleman added another trick to his bag of motivational tactics Friday when he invited platinum-selling rap artist Waka Flocka Flame to attend the Razorback practice and speak to his team.

The award-winning musician donned a No. 1 Arkansas jersey as he observed practice, talked to the team, and took pictures with players and staff.

To which Waka responded, "Count me in coach."

Waka is well-known for his chart-topping songs, "Hard In Da Paint" and "No Hands," which receive regular rotation in clubs and frat houses across the country.

He has used his success and platform as a musical artist to give back and positively impact local communities. Earlier this year, Waka received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his work with a Chicago-based non-profit.

The Razorbacks are hoping to capitalize on the energy gained from this celebrity visit when they take on Mercer in their season opener.

The two teams are set to tip-off Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Bud Walton Arena. The game will be televised on SEC Network Plus.
