Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame may be hip to the Internet Age, however, he admits there is no way you can convince him to click on any popular gossip or rumor blogs.
Flocka said he has come to realize gossip blogs and reality television only excel through painting artists in a negative light.
“I don’t be reading no blogs, Mediatakeout.com, none of that. I saw some lame sh*t on there and I ain’t never went back. But I can’t lie some of that sh*t be convincing–the way they put it together. I even hate reality TV. To me reality TV is like embarrassing,” Flocka said in an interview. “They only sell shit that make you look stupid. They tried to give me and Gucci [Mane] a reality show. I just couldn’t do it. Get the f*ck out of here.”[Laughs] I just be making my records. And really, I don’t really do a lot of guest verses for people like that. I turn down mad sh*t. Sometimes it ain’t even about the bread. If I do a feature now, it’s probably somebody you haven’t even heard of.” (VIBE)
In 2011, reports emerged claiming Waka and Gucci Mane would have their own reality television series.
The yet to be titled program will give viewers an intimate look at the behind-the-scene lives of two of rap’s biggest names. “We show everyday life. What we get into in studio and at our shows. We just ordinary people with a crazy Rock ‘N’ Roll lifestyle,” Gucci told RumorFix exclusively. “Because of the music we make, people think that’s what we do all the time — but we got a real family life. We got heart. We do a lot of things for the community and we love each other,” the Atlanta rapper continued. (RumorFix)
Last May, Grammy-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco dished out his issues with the Internet as a whole.
“Sometimes I wish I never found the internet. Sometimes I regret getting a laptop and Wi-Fi for logging into the internet because it is such a distraction. If you have any addictive personality, the internet will magnify it. You have to be careful on the internet. You’ll look up and be like, ‘D*mn, it’s been six hours.’ I’m still trying to figure out a way to take [web browser] Safari off my laptop. With the blogs, it’s like high school. I wasn’t the most popular person in high school, it was like 50/50. Some people liked me, some people didn’t, some people really didn’t f*ck with me.” (XXL Mag)
Recently, Flocka dicussed his upcoming Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family LP.
“My dog [Slim Dunkin] ain’t pass. I ain’t accepting that,” Waka told MTV News after a photo shoot in Brooklyn, New York, last week. “You know that sh– is gonna carry with me, though, because he’s me and I’m him. Together we’re Brick Squad, man.” Flocka dedicated his upcoming June album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family to Dunkin. “What’s behind my Triple F Life wave? The passing of my best friend Dunk. R.I.P. Dunk,” he said. “That boy there was special. That boy there was different.” (MTV)
