It seems like is backtracking on his “wack rapper” remarks. In a recent interview with Everyday StruggleWaka talked about switching lanes from rap to business. “I wanted to figure out how can I become a billionaire and a multi-millionaire f business,” he said. “Because I did it with rap.  See what I’m saying? My realness overcame my wackness.” 

Soon, everyone weighed in on Waka’s abilities, and according to the rap reality star, that’s exactly what he wanted everyone to do. “Nah, it’s more reverse psychology,” Waka told Rap-Up. “It was more so this generation, the people that think they got power and they feel that way…You know, obviously they make these little lists and they say these influential people the decade. I be sitting here like, yo, hip hop never sound like this before me but okay, who’s more an influencer? Okay, cool. I’m a wack rapper, I guess. Let me say I’m wack, just so y’all can actually hear people say, ‘No, this guy is actually the GOAT. One the GOATs.”

Waka went on to say that he occupies the same spaces as legends in the game, and if he’s alongside them, then his place is solidified. However, he clarified, “I am a wack rapper] compared to the people I look up to. Let’s be real. If me, , and get on a track, who’s gonna have the wackest verse? I’m a realist.  That’s when a wack rapper wins.”

He added that you can’t compare him to the likes “Uzi Vert, NBA YoungBoy, Thugs, and] 21s” because “it’s like comparing LeBron with Jordan it’s impossible. You can’t compare Kobe with Jordan… It’s different eras.” Watch Waka Flocka and his wife Tammy Rivera chat with Rap-Up about his lyrical skills and their new reality show below.
