 In Part 2 of AHH’s Waka Flocka interview, we talk about beef,lyrics and this feelings on getting shot.  

AllHipHop.com: I asked people on twitter to ask Waka some questions. Some people wanted to know if you care about the “Real Hip-Hop.”  

Waka Flocka: Come on bro, like, who don’t care about that? I ain’t saying nothing about that. I said I don’t need no lyrics. Lyrics ain’t getting me paid. It ain’t. That ain’t got me paid. I’m just speaking how I feel. So what a person thinking they lyrical, half the people that we’re talking about, talking bad on me ain’t lyrical. That was just a part of that era. If you don’t know the era you don’t know music. But people be quoting from that era like they lived through that era. Them folk born in the 80’s man. Folks in the 80’s was 20-something years old, you wasn’t even 5 years old, how the hell you know what was going on right there and then.  

They talk about “pick up a such-and-such album, pick up this album,” and if I get to rapping like that, what somebody going to do with my CD? Fling that s**t out the window. Them folk don’t want to hear that man. Hip-Hop is for development. It just ain’t for standing still, going back and remaking old songs. That ain’t cool, remaking folk’s songs. I honestly don’t think that’s cool. I might quote a person because that quote went hard, but people trying to say who’s “lyrical”, it ain’t lyrical man. 

AllHipHop.com: You would lose your fan base anyways if you did that.  

Waka Flocka: Yeah, in my opinion, they wouldn’t respect me for that. They would probably be like “You ain’t even on that, why you trying to prove a point to people that don’t even know you.” I don’t care about what all they got going on with their lyrics. You can have that…[people] like “Aye, you got simple rap.” Yeah it’s got me straight. Put your words in the club, you got about 1,000 words in one verse, nobody wants to hear that man. They drunk, they in the zone, or they mad. I just come get your party crunk, that’s it and dip. I ain’t come to let you sit in the car, listen to my whole cd, and make you go through emotional problems, Come on, I ain’t even into all that.

AllHipHop.com: What’s up with you and Brisco? Right after you got shot, he just made this song that was like raw. It was so raw. I don’t know where it stems from really.  

Waka Flocka: I didn’t think it was raw.  

AllHipHop.com: You didn’t?  

Waka Flocka: Hell nah, it wasn’t all that. But I felt like he got emotional. This n####, I ain’t even know nothing about him. The only thing I heard from him was a Lil’ Wayne song but, I ain’t finna to diss that man. That’s on him. That’s how he feel, that’s how he got emotional, it is what it is. I ain’t even going to worry about that man.  

AllHipHop.com: So you don’t have any other beefs?  

Waka Flocka: I don’t even eat red meat so beef isn’t even my category. Give me some fish, and some chicken.  

AllHipHop.com: How do you feel like the internet played a part in your success?  

Waka Flocka: That’s where I did my promotion. My first mixtape, I ain’t even press no copies of my mixtape. I was just straight on the internet. I was paying people to blast. I ain’t even let my folks know I dropped a mixtape, I did all that on my own. I ain’t go to no studio because I was really underground. I really did it for fun…and it popped so I’m going to run with it.  

AllHipHop.com: Well, some dudes, I don’t know if they had any involvement in your shooting, but they were on the internet posting up with your chain.  

Waka Flocka: Yeah man, that’s crazy ain’t it?  

AllHipHop.com: Yeah, that’s wild.  

Waka Flocka: I like that, it was good promotion too. They made me rich though, I didn’t know how they look…a bird or a dog could have shot me. I ain’t even see his face. 

AllHipHop.com: What you mean a bird or a dog?  

Waka Flocka: Like a animal, I thought a animal just flew down [imitates a gun with his hand and makes the sound of it being shot]. Ain’t no human did it. Who knows? That might not be them that might be them. 

AllHipHop.com: You don’t care? 

Waka Flocka: Hell no! 

AllHipHop.com: Why not?  

Waka Flocka: For what? 

AllHipHop.com: Because people assaulted you.  

Waka Flocka: He ain’t assaulted me man, he ain’t even know he shot me.  

AllHipHop.com: He didn’t? 

Waka Flocka: Hell nah, he was running. He did just like this [imitates a gun with his hand, points it in front of him while looking behind him], blaow!  

AllHipHop.com: I thought you said they were trying to take your life.  

Waka Flocka: Yeah, but he was scared. I was in the driver seat, he put a gun right here [points to left side of his head]. “So wassup I’m trying to kill you” I’m like, “S### you ain’t gotta kill me you can have this, [starts taking off rings on his fingers] this cheap ass jewelry.” I mean it ain’t cheap, but hey, this s###’s priceless. So I take my chain off, I’m stepping out of the car, he backed up. I’m like, “S### I mind as well go, fight this n####, take it from him, and show him what to do with it.”  

But, once I grabbed it, he reacted quick. While I was in a punch…[lifts up his arm as if punching and then points to his arm right below his shoulder as if he was being shot] boom, and when it hit, it hit my ribs and lungs. He thought he hit me in my chest, he thought he shot me in the side, he don’t even know he hit me in my arm, right here [shows scar from bullet wound].  

AllHipHop.com: That’s your first time getting shot?  

Waka Flocka: Hell yeah, I hope its the last time cause I don’t glorify bullets. 

AllHipHop.com: Oh yeah…you hang out with Nicki Minaj?  

Waka Flocka: Yeah, not no more, she’s stupid booked up, that’s my partner though. She’s cool as hell, and she’s fire with the rapping. Don’t get on no…..with her because she’s going to smoke your ass.
