Waka Flocka Flame just proved that he’s one of the most humble rap artists out there.
Sitting down with Everyday Struggle, the hiphop star admitted he always knew he was a “wack rapper.”
He explains: “By 2012-2013, I had $30 million. At that point in life, I’m being real on my dead brother, why was I rapping? What was I rapping about? I’m rich. I wanted to be rich.”
Waka Flocka adds: “From that time to right now, I wanted to figure how can I become a billionaire and a multibillionaire off of business ’cause I did it with rap. I was a wack rapper. I knew I was wack. But I was real, see what I’m saying? My realness overcame my wackness.”
Host DJ Akademiks then asks he music star if he really thinks he was wack, to which he replies: “My favourite rappers are DMX Nas, KRS-One, Goodie Mob … I can’t rap like those folks! Put me in the booth with Kendrick Lamar [laughs]. For me, this is just me talking for me. I’m a Gemini. My only friend’s gonna be me.”
Taking to Twitter, fans voiced their support for his modesty:
WAKA: I quit rapping when I hit $30M…
ME: Yes, no one needs more than that!
WAKA: …because I decided I wanted to becoming a billionaire businessman instead
ME: … oh. https://t.co/PEPcqjJb2a
