Wacka Flocka Flame and Rick Ross

Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Rick Ross Shut Down Waka Flocka Flame?

I heard a lil’ rumor that Rick Ross and friends may have “compelled” Waka Flocka to fall back off those statements he made about people watering down his style.  You remember the interview he did with Complex, right – where he basically said Rick Ross stole his style. Here’s a refresher on what he said below:


“That’s crazy [that Rick Ross stole my swag], but what you gonna say? This nigga out here making 30 f**king sounds with your sound. He watering it down, just putting words together that sounded good. Shit would be harder if it was the truth…niggas built labels off our sound—like, literally.

You know how many niggas sound like Lex Luger and Southside? I go in niggas’ studios, all their beats sound like my producers. I be like, What the fuck? [But] you can’t be mad at something you can’t control.”

Well after that, he basically called Complex liars and that the quote was taken out of context. Uh, right? Who pressed him? I’m just saying…there is a big difference with what he said after. I heard he had a talking to. Hell, his mother is a G. She may have talked to him!

    both of them are trash, and dumb the youth down,

  • CanYouAllHearMe

    Evey time someone says something bad about William his label and team get to work, You know how much money they spend in paying people off and keeping them happy, William might have made a lil few mill but he ain’t got in in his bank

    Why not just make a record together and call it a day. Ross and Waka have too many fans and populairity to be going at each other, like Drake and Chris Brown.While I do believe a lot of rappers, labels and producers jack a lot of the Lex/Southside/Waka/Down South sound, hell, they stole their sounds from older cats like Three 6, Pastor Troy, Lil Jon, etc…it’s a copycat league!

  • He was only telling the truth…At least about the part of everybody beats sounding like Lex and Southside….which sound like D.Rich and Shawty Redd, in my humble opinion. Oh well. Politics as usual I suppose. 

    • you right about D.Rich & Shawty Redd… they were the ones doing all of Yo Gotti & Jeezy beats then lex luger came along, with every other biter

  • Bawse!

  • Very few producres or rappers have their own distinct sound or flow. Most people are influenced by someone else and you can usually hear who influenced them and know. Only thing with hip hop is that most people dont want to admit it because they may be considered biters or not original. It’s normal to be influenced by someone though!

    • BIGDICKSWANGA

      Learn how to spell you illiterate youbg thug slash internet gangsta. Typing like that don’t make you look more like a thug. It makes you look like an immature retard.

  • This guy sound like Timbaland about people using his sounds. Help other brothas get rich but niggas don’t pursue their mindset that way.

  • S. Long

    This dude doesn’t seem to realize that once something is hot or hot to certain people, then someone is gonna copy it and profit off it. Truth be told  I can’t see nobody really biting off of Waka style.
