In a new interview Waka Flocka spoke out about his influence on the game.
On DJ Akademiks’ podcast, he said that he was bringing rap culture into rap. This is not something he was supposed to do. “Put it like this, I got electric wire – I’m from where electricity hang at, right? I was shocked to learn that I can swim in water. So I started swimming. ‘Oh this sh*t is cool, it’s happy'”
He continued, “But one day I drop a plug in that muthaf*cka and everybody get electrocuted. So, is swimming dangerous or is it dangerous to do what you did? This means that people bring danger into a lifestyle that has helped them escape danger. It is dangerous.
He said that you must choose one lifestyle over the other.
Akademiks told him that he couldn’t do both. “I can’t just trust a n*gga trying ton play balance street or music, ain’t no balance.”
