Brick Squad rapper Waka Flocka Flame stopped by Houston’s 97.9 for an interview on Wednesday.
Nnete from Houston’s 97.9 The Box Madd Hatta Morning Show interviewed Waka Flocka Flame and the Atlanta rapper, who has 4 mixtapes dropping soon, explains why he’s not worrying about releasing an official album:
Man I ain’t finna make myself hot and then have them eating off of me and then I’m just left with nothing?
Nnete goes on to ask Waka if he thinks record deals are overrated and here was his response:
Psshh Don’t You? Man, (shakes his head) folks aint cutting no checks man, …. At the end of the day, it’s on me…like one single and people saying ‘oh man, you should drop an album, you hot!’…Who? I aint finna go double-wood for ‘Oh Let’s Do It’, real talk!
Waka then mentions that he plans to make himself hot first and then use the labels to get him in movies, TV and on the radio! He later says he is just trying to learn the business right now and even makes a comparison between artists and prostitutes, saying:
“You are a prostitute. You have to sell yourself.”
Thanks to Nnete for sending this over to us!
