After recently confirming speculation claiming he is rubbing elbows alongside former Death Row Records owner Suge Knight, Atlanta’s Waka Flocka Flame how now expanded on his real motivation for linking with the music executive.
While Waka sought out Suge’s advice, he claims there was never an intent to use him to gain a stronger West Coast fan base.
“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)
Last week, Waka Flocka broke his silence on linking up with Knight.
“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)
A year ago, Waka Flocka and Knight were 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)
He recently proclaimed his record label as the new version of Birdman’s Cash Money and Diddy’s Bad Boy Records.
“IM A TURN MY CITY UP CLAYTON COUNTY / ATLANTA SHINE LIGHT ON THE REAL GROVE STREET AND ATLANTA N***** #MARKMYWORDS #BRICKSQUADMONOPLY,” he tweeted October 23rd.
