Outside of his new music, Waka recently said he wanted props for influencing other artists' sound.
Waka--who claims to have came up with the word "HAM"--says he felt relieved by the similarities. "What are y'all gonna say now?" he says when asked about these songs. "Jay-Z stupid as hell? My sound is wack? You gonna say that? They love the sound. They can't run away from it. That shit re-sparked n*ggas' careers. My sound put life into a lot of people's careers. I feel like my sound changed hip-hop. Period. It's crazy when I came out with it everybody laughed at it, but the next year everybody's doing it. They getting credit for the sh*t you started. You be like, 'D*mn, how is this n*gga a genius for doing something I started?'" (Complex)
Back in 2010, Flocka talked to SOHH about his bond alongside super producer Lex Luger.
"Lex Luger did about 12 to 13 of the beats so you already know that the whole album is jumping," Flocka told SOHH referring to Flockaveli. "From front to the back. "Turned Up" is on the album, "Southside" is on it too. The production is there. Lex is my Dr. Dre, literally. Like, that's why we're the new Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. Real talk. He knows everything about me, that's my boy. That's like my little brother and my business partner. That's my dawg. If I need something or he needs something, he's gonna ask me. We party together, we laugh together, we do everything. He can come to my house and spend a whole month just hanging out." (SOHH)
