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.
He explains what he means when he says "Waka can't rap," saying, "Iâm being sarcastic. People say, âYou donât have lyrics,â so Iâm just like, âLord knows Waka canât rap.â Throw it in their faces. I really donât have an answer for them. Iâm doing Wakaâs music. My music is different. It donât sound like a typical rapperâs music."
On if he feels like an outcast in the rap community, Waka says "No, I feel like Iâm a part of hip-hop. I make good music. As a man and as an artist Iâm developing. The old âO Letâs Do Itâ Waka, he didnât 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. Iâd 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."
