Waka Flocka Flame marked a career milestone today with the release of his debut album Flockaveli. But the Brick Squad emcee also has his sights set on achieving a surprise pairing with Queensbridge legend Nas.
Several months ago, Waka Flocka cited Nas to AllHipHop.com as his choice for the best rapper of all time.
The two rappers also have Queens, NY in common. Waka spent his first 8 years in Jamaica, Queens before moving to Riverdale, Georgia.
With his name continuing to gain momentum via his well-received singles, Flocka is open to working with more artists outside his camp, as he did on his latest hit “No Hands.”
When given a list of emcees, Flocka became visibly excited at the idea of working with Nas.
“Excuse my language but hell yeah!” he exclaimed.
Although Nas is primarily lauded for his highly poetic rhymes, the veteran lyricist has experience with crunk music via his work with Lil Jon.
Because of that, Waka Flocka Flame doesn’t feel he’d have to modify his approach to compliment Nas’ style.
In fact, he argues that trying to change his presentation would take away from the potency of the proposed track.
“My content, I’m on the same style,” Waka Flocka stated. “I can’t change for nobody. I guess people will like you for you. When you change you’re not being you, and then they won’t like you.”
