Waka Flocka discusses the two mixtapes he plans to drop before the summer, getting into acting with his debut movie role, as well as fighting with Gucci Mane.
Waka FlockaÂ has been keeping busy working on new music, amidstÂ Gucci Mane conflicts. As the rapper said yesterday on RapFix Live, he does not want to ever work with Gucci again. So although we may not be seeing any Gucci Mane features on theÂ two upcoming mixtapes he's been working on, there are sure to be other gems for fans on there.
Waka discussed the upcomingÂ projects,Â which includeÂ DuFlocka Rant Halftime ShowÂ andÂ Y'all Can't Flock With Me,Â as well as his newest tape,Â with Pigeons & Planes recently.Â He alsoÂ touched on the problems with Gucci Mane, and it sounds like he doesn't even know what the beef is between them. He spoke on getting into movies and a role he just picked up, as well as yet another tape, Flockavelli 2, which already has a release date forÂ October 5th.Â
Check out excerpts from the interview below.Â
Letâs talk about the new mixtape a little bit. What were your goals for it?
DuFlocka Rant 2? My goal forÂ DuFlocka RantÂ was to show people aboutÂ FlockavelliÂ and Waka Flocka. I ventured off and tried to grab other styles and other venues, other markets, and I succeeded. I conquered them. Plus, I feel like my aura is my clear. My music is way clearer than it was when I first came out because the vocabulary wasnât there, all I knew was the hood. Rapping showed me how to walk in certain lights, communicate with certain people. Things I didnât know, I shut up, paid attention, grabbed the information, and acted like I knew it all my life.
You have two more mixtapes before summer?
Yes, I have two more mixtapes. Might drop one on the 30th, it's a strong possibility. It's calledÂ DuFlocka Rant Halftime Show.Â Itâs like a halftime show at a game, itâs just modest, eating light songs. Fans will love it, I feel like they deserve it. I bullshitted all last year so now I came out to play this year. The next one isÂ Yaâll Canât Flock With Me, itâs hard as hell. No schedule in mind, itâs hard as fuck though.
I know youâre probably getting sick of being asked this, but I wanted to ask you about Gucci. You've been in fights before right?
Me andÂ Gucciâ¦ nah weâve never had altercations, like public shit like this. I feel like maybe he know something I donât know? Maybe itâs jealousy. I donât fucking know, I never had a conversation with him. I really donât care to have a conversation with him. The space Iâm in in life right now, I try to get negative energy away from me. I donât know man, thatâs not the person for me.
I donât need a guy with negative energy. Fuck the music, I donât care how good your music is, if youâre not a good person, youâre music is going to fall with you. You canât help somebody that doesnât want to be helped, itâs impossible. Iâm done trying to help. I just heard today that he got arrested. Thatâs sad.
Do you have anything else you want to talk about?
Flockavelli 2Â comes out on October 5. Make sure they copy that I just signed to William Morris. That talent route, going hard, Iâm loving it. Just got my first movie role. A gangsta movie, I gotta do what I know for now. The name of the movie is a question mark, but my name in it is Lil Boogie. Iâm gonna be Lil Boogie. Iâm not gonna lie, this movie got names. I know for a fact that the other rapper they got in it isÂ DMX. And I think they said Steven Seagal? Iâm not sure though.
