After raising eyebrows last fall for linking up with former owner of Death Row Records, Marion "Suge" Knight, Atlanta's Waka Flocka Flame claims he never signed on any dotted lines for a business deal with Knight.
Although the partnership speculation is now nixed, Waka said he did have some talks with the music executive.
"I ain't sign no partnership with Suge Knight ever in my life," the Bricksquad Monopoly general said. "Suge to me, he was just an OG in the game. If a guy go [and] express his feelings towards me and tell me what he like of me or the mistakes he made so I don't make the mistakes, why not listen to him? You feel what I'm saying? Just because you talk, holla at a person or eat a burger with a person, hang with a person for a day, don't mean they handling all of your business. They scared of that sh*t, though, so they gonna throw it in the media. They don't want it with a n*gga like Suge." (XXL Mag)
Back in late October, Flocka opened up on his reasoning behind rubbing elbows with Knight.
"Suge is just here because I just grab game from Suge," Waka explained in an interview. "[He's] just giving me the game from a guy that had a multi-million dollar company. He's showing me this, this and this. He's showing me the mistakes he made so I don't make the same mistakes. I'm just getting game from him. He's just a real n*gga so I'm just saluting him. To tell you the truth, I wasn't looking [for a West Coast co-sign and fans]. Like, 'I got Suge, I got the West Coast.' ... I wasn't looking at it like that but it comes with it." (Hip Hop News 24/7)
A week prior, Waka Flocka broke his silence on getting down with infamous music exec and No Limit Records founder, Master P.
"It's valid. It ain't no rumors. It's what it is," Waka said about working with the Death Row Records co-founder. "You gotta really start pulling in people in the game who know the game. Suge is not the only one. I'mma start snatching in the real ones. Suge helped me get a good movie deal. Now I need to get on the TV screen. Ain't nothing wrong with f*ckin' with some Gs. I f*ck with Master P too. They're just good for information homie. He's helping me oversee the company. I'm not trying to be 'Pac, I'm not trying to be Death Row. I'm Brick Squad Monopoly. My mother is still my manager. I ain't changing sh*t. It is what it is. But its like having [Michael] Jordan and Kobe [Bryant]. Why not play with both?" (XXL Mag)
Prior to confirming the hype, Waka Flocka and Knight were previously spotted together in Los Angeles.
Waka Flocka Flame performed in L.A. recently and Suge Knight popped up backstage. The two posed for pictures before Waka went about his business. I don't know why this is even news but I guess anytime Suge Knight pops up it's a story. What I do know is that if my boo Waka turns up missing, Suge will be my primary suspect. (Straight From The A)
