Gucci Mane assures fans he'll get Waka Flocka on the Brick Squad compilation album, as well he explains the difference between 1017 Brick Squad and Brick Squad Monopoly.
Gucci Mane recently revealed that a Brick Squad compilation album is on the way, and it will indeed feature Waka Flocka, who in recent months has been beefing with Gucci. GuWop sat down with The Fader for an interview, in which he discussed his relationship with Waka and getting him to appear on Big Money Talk.
In the interview, Gucci once more owns up to his problems with the law (as we reported yesterday, Gucci also advised Chief Keef to not make the same mistakes he did). Peep excerpts from the interview with The Fader below.
Waka said he couldnât be kicked out of Brick Squad because he owns a portion of 1017 Brick Squad and all of Brick Squad Monopoly. Whatâs the difference between 1017 Brick Squad and Brick Squad Monopoly?Â 1017 Brick Squad records was a label I made when I ended my partnership with So Icey Entertainment. I signed Waka to that label and I signed myself to the label. OJ Da Juiceman actually came up with the name Brick Squad. We were like a group Brick Squad: me, Wooh da Kid, Frenchie, Juice and Waka. We were gonna drop a group album. Then I decided to just focus on me and Waka. While I focused on me and Waka, we droppedÂ Ferrari Boyz. Then after we dropped theÂ FlockaveliÂ album, Waka decided he wanted to have his own label and put out some of his own artists , cause heâs got a lot of people that he collaborate with and a lot of artists that love to work with him. Thatâs where the BSM came in, thatâs his imprint that heâs starting off and trying to get going. But both me and Waka are signed to 1017 Brick Squad records, with a partnership with Atlantic right now.
Youâve said youâd like to work things out with Waka, and that youâll release a Brick Squad album this summer. Will Waka appear on that album?Â Heâll definitely be on the album, just because weâve recorded so much material to date that we were planning to put on the Brick Squad album anyway. So no matter if we work things out or not, whether he drops his next album on 1017 Brick Squad or Brick Squad Monopoly or however the situation works out, he definitely will be on the Brick Squad album. Those songs are already recorded. And weâre gonna push forward and try to let him drop the next three albums that heâs contracted to drop on my label. Cause at the end of the day itâs still business. I pride myself on being a great businessman and I think heâll honor what he committed to and weâll push forward.
Do you think you and Waka will be friends in the future?Â I hope so. This isnât the first time that me and Waka been at odds with each other. We always work it out. This is like the sixth or seventh time. I donât see no difference between this and the last one.
Do you tweet your own tweets?Â Most of the time. Iâm heavily involved with my Twitter page. A lot of things come out that are just promotional, but if it seems like I said it, itâs more than likely I put it on there.
Does your belly make you look rich?Â I think it makes me look rich, but at the same time Iâm trying to start exercising and take better care of myself cause itâs definitely a sign of bad health as well. I need to do better with my health for me and my family, and be around for me and my son.
