Waka Flocka Flame Says He Is Not Black, Has A Tribe

Waka Flocka Flame needs you to get his ethnicity correct. Apparently, the Atlanta rapper isn’t African-American or Black but actually Native. 

We’re not talking the run of the mill “I got Cherokee in my family jig, either. According to the “No Hands” rapper, he is 100% native by blood.

Our sisters over MadameNoire broke down Waka’s “enlightenment” during his appearance on Sway In The Morning:

“When it comes to talking about African Americans, I have no education with that. Period. I’m not even connected to that. That’s a system. That’s like connected to ‘Hey he’s a bad guy. Don’t hang with him.’ I’m not African American at all. My folks is not from Africa. A lot of people in this room’s folks not from Africa. Might be a couple. People just don’t understand. I ask my grandma, what’s your background? She like, ‘Red foot and Black toe Indian.’ Yeah, my mother and father, we’re 100 percent Indian.’ Ask my other grandma, we got Cherokee in us, European and Italian, a little Dominican. It’s crazy. Y’all looking at me funny like, ‘N*gga, I’m African. You’re not though. 80 percent of slaves was already here, was natives.

Sway: 80. Where you get that number from?

Waka: Sh* I just check the books.

Sway: Which book?

Waka: I got a whole laptop full of this sh*t. Just from me reading. It’s not a solid book, like ‘Hey only a thousand slaves came here.’ Nah n*gga you gotta read. You have to literally read. I’m so deep into it I don’t think about a slave ship. I think about what was a slave ship called? Jesus. What the f*ck was the slave ship called that Christopher Columbus was on?

Oh yes, there was plenty more struggle.

When one of the hosts asked about his identity, Waka said this.

Waka: “I’m other. I’m uneducated. So for me to sit here like a college professor, I’m wrong. I’m uneducated. I’m confused. But I’m damn sure not Black. You not going to call me Black. My grandmother is not Crayola. I’m connected to a tribe. I’m from a tribe, not a country. It’s a big difference. Different laws, different everything. Big difference.”

It’s clear that in the midst of this, someone, likely from Waka’s team taps Sway and probably told him to change the subject because homeboy was f*cking up.

But Waka circled back, “I don’t want to make n*ggas feel like I’m on some other sh*t because I’m saying I don’t want to connect with African Americans like I’m saying f*ck Black. It’s nothing like that. It’s that my eyelids is up. And when your eyelids is up, you read about everything you put in your mouth, you say out your mouth, you walk, you talk and conversate with. I don’t live for money everyday no more. I live for the truth.”

Someone, please send Waka Flock one of those DNA heritage tests before he confuses himself any further.

No shots.

Waka Flocka Flame “Big Dawg,” Trinidad James “Riker$” & More | Daily Visuals 10.5.17

It’s been a hot minute since Waka Flocka Flame’s dropped any new material so we were pleasantly surprised that he finally came through with something new.

For his visuals to “Big Dawg” the Brick Squad rapper surrounds himself with a bevy of attractive young ladies that ultimately kept their distance from Tammy Rivera’s hubby throughout the video.

And after making some controversial comments about the Hip-Hop scene in New York a few years back, Trinidad James heads back to the city that never sleeps and shows some love for his clip to “Big Dawg.” We wonder how Mysonne will feel about this.

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Yelawolf featuring Juicy J and Travis Barker, Audio Push, and more.

WAKA FLOCKA FLAME – “BIG DAWG”

TRINIDAD JAMES – “RIKER$ ”

YELAWOLF FT. JUICY J & TRAVIS BARKER – “PUNK”

AUDIO PUSH – “GRITS”

CHUCK STRANGERS – “FRESH”

Nelly “The Fix,” Waka Flocka “Workin’” & More | Daily Visuals 9.24.15

Looking to get back on those Billboard charts he dominated in the early 00’s, Nelly debuts the visuals to his latest “Sexual Healing” infused cut, “The Fix.”

Sampling the classic Marvin Gaye record, the St. Lunatic is joined by R&B singer Jeremih and seems to have aspirations of fulfilling the single ladies man void left by Drake – thank Serena for that – by demonstrating that he’s just as suave, sophisticated, and seductive. He’s also like 10 years older so if anything he should be twice those things.

Flo Rida continues to pump out feel good records that are bound to end up in commercials, sporting events, and television sitcoms. His latest “My House” finds the Florida rapper enjoying the fruits of his labor via champagne sipping, pillow fights, and seafood served on the body of a naked female like Salmonella poisoning is a thing of the past.

Check out the rest of today’s releases which include work from Waka Flocka, Soulja Boy, The Other Guys, and more.

 

NELLY FT. JEREMIH – “THE FIX”

 

FLO RIDA – “MY HOUSE”

 

WAKA FLOCKA – “WORKIN’”

 

SOULJA BOY – “GRATATA”

Wacka Flocka “Game On,” Freeway “Used To” & More | Daily Visuals 7.7.15

Think what you will, but an argument can be made that Wacka Flocka and Rick Ross started the whole “dad bod” trend because these dudes don’t wiggle it just a little bit in their visuals, and still enjoy life. Shirts be damned!

And don’t get caught sleeping on “Withdrawal” as it features Chicago rap vets Twista and Do or Die teaming up and spitting more tongue twisters than Freddy Kruger in Nightmare On Elm Street 3.

Check out the rest of today’s releases which include work from Freeway, Rejjie Snow, and more.

 

WACKA FLOCKA FT. GOOD CHARLOTTE – “GAME ON”

Waka Flocka Flame & Good Charlotte Go Half On Pixels: The Movie Theme Song [LISTEN]

Waka Flocka Flame has just gotten a huge look after his new collaboration with Good Charlotte titled “Game On” has been designated to serve as the official theme song for the upcoming summer flick, Pixels: The Movie. The film starring Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Kevin James, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan, takes place in the present day but the antagonists are a several 80s video games falling from outer space to destroy the world. It’s actually not as silly as it sounds and the action-comedy scenes were in need of high octane soundtrack, which Flocka and the boys from Maryland bring to the table.

Keeping it line with similar rap/rock fusion records, the Brick Squad leader piles on the video game metaphors while Good Charlotte’s rock riffs excel the track’s adrenaline. Producer KoOoLkOjak also integrated audio effects from the film itself to give the backdrop an 8-bit topping.

Listen to “Game On” below.

And check out the official trailer for Pixels: The Movie, in theaters July 24.

Tory Lanez & Shlomo Groove, Waka Flocka Turns Up & More | Daily Visuals 5.22.15

While it may seem like most of today’s top talent is using this Flashback Friday to lay back and get their reminisce on, some up and coming acts are taking advantage of the available air time to showcase what they can bring to the current soundscape.

Tory Lanez & Shlohmo continue to appease the Swavenation by demonstrating that living life in the fast lane can in fact be captured in slow motion in “Acting Like.” And on the R&B side, Natasha Mosley risks alienating her female fan base—or empowering it—by letting her male audience know that she’s capable of one-upping their current girl in every category that matters to them on “Anything.”

Check out the rest of today’s latest heat, and one from Waka Flocka that we missed earlier this week, below.

 

Tory Lanez & Shlohmo – “Acting Like”

 

Waka Flocka ft. DJ Whoo Kid – “Turn Up Godz”

 

Natasha Mosley – “Anything”

 

KR – “Play My Sh*t”

 

Joe-N-Box – “Other Sh*t”

 

Delasean – “Real Estate”
