In a recent interview Waka Flocka explains how he deals with criticism of his lyrics.
Waka Flocka released his album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family this past week. He delivered the energy he’s known for, but he was still criticized for his lyrics, or lack-there-of.
The Brick Squad rapper addressed this criticism in a recent interview with FADER.
He explains what he means when he says “Waka can’t rap,” saying, “Iâ€™m being sarcastic. People say, â€œYou donâ€™t have lyrics,â€ so Iâ€™m just like, â€œLord knows Waka canâ€™t rap.â€ Throw it in their faces. I really donâ€™t have an answer for them. Iâ€™m doing Wakaâ€™s music. My music is different. It donâ€™t sound like a typical rapperâ€™s music.”
On if he feels like an outcast in the rap community, Waka says “No, I feel like Iâ€™m a part of hip-hop. I make good music. As a man and as an artist Iâ€™m developing. The old â€œO Letâ€™s Do Itâ€ Waka, he didnâ€™t have any remorse. I still have no remorse but I give a fuck now. Before I could get on stage, rap, and not give a shit, period. Iâ€™d pull up to the club in a taxi, jump out by myself, go in and perform at a bar stand. I was throwing bows, pushing. Little kid wild, like a freshman in college.”
