Waka Flocka

Waka Flocka stopped by DJ Sway's Shade 45 radio show on Wednesday. The "Bricksquad" rapper's discussion with Sway ran the gamut from gang banging, and his ethnic origins, to the NFL protests and more.

Waka, whose real name is Juaquin James Malphurs, even touched on the recent protests of Houston's restaurants by his mom, Debra Antney, and rapper T.I. in Atlanta.

Waka, 31, said he never experienced discrimination at Houston's.

On black people in America:

When it comes to talking about African Americans, I have no education with that, period. I'm not even connected to that, 'cause that's a system. I'm not African American at all. My folks is not from Africa… We got Cherokee in us, a little Dominican. I'm other. I'm uneducated. I'm uneducated. So, for me to sit here like a college professor, I'm wrong. I'm uneducated. I'm confused. You know what I'm saying? But I'm damn sure not Black. You not gonna call me Black. My grandmother is not Creole. No. I'm connected to a tribe. I'm from a tribe, not a country. It's a big difference. Different laws, different everything.

On the NFL protests:

"Like, that's crazy man, for you to tell somebody, like, 'Yo, stand up to this flag.' N---a do you know what this flag did to us? Like, when is it gonna come the time when these players is respected? You know what I'm saying? Even, like, Kaepernick. For shorty to even kneel down, bro. That's deep. That's deep. That ain't got nothing to do with Black Power; that's deep. That's human rights."

On gang banging:

"I was an animal, I was a f---ing animal. And I'm not saying gang banging is wrong… N---a, I'm who I am. I'm a Piru [street gang] for real, like in real life. I got shot for this sh-t. It's different. I didn't get shot for being Waka Flocka."

On men making homosexual advances to him:

"That's uncomfortable. It's like being in a room with a lion; this n---a wanna eat me. That's uncomfortable… This n---a wanna f--- me. It's not saying that what you doing is wrong. It makes me uncomfortable. What straight man gonna walk in a room full of gay men? It's nothing wrong wit ya'll n----s being gay in a room, but I'm straight."

    At least he acknowledges that he's dumb and uneducated. He should at least do some research to back up his statement though...I bet money that neither his mother or father were raised in a tribe or on any native American reservations...stop insulting those people.

    If there is one thing I abhor more than others, it is an uneducated fool that takes pride in their lack of knowledge. I never liked this guy; he has provided me with another reason to ignore him from now onwards.
    Parents, don't fail your children. Encourage them to continuously learn and expand their minds.

    Sadly this person is still trying to find himself. He needs the yt man to tell him exactly who he is. Hopefully that will educate him.

  • Bonsai

    He don't have a Cherokee name nor a Dominican name. Yikes. I betcha he can't tell us 1 thing about Cherokee culture!

    This reminds me of all the black gay dudes online, claiming to be native American. I had no idea straight men suffered from that affliction, too! ? And why is he assuming that gays want to eat and f@$k him? It sounds like he's projecting his fantasies.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Amerikka did a hell of a job on us. I just shake my head every time a black person starts in with that "I'm not black. I'm Spanish. My people aren't from Africa" nonsense.

    That being said, this interview confirmed what I already suspected. I think he runs circles around Tammy mentally. He's the type of man that is just smart enough to be manipulative and prey on women like Tammy, but wouldn't be able to handle an intelligent successful woman with self esteem.

  • 2telldatruth

    The really sad part is that most light-skinned negros excluding the last generation skin complexion is the direct result rape experienced generations earlier by their great, great, great grandmother.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Listen....they claim to be everything BUT black. "Spanish" is the most common. They don't speak Spanish, don't know anything about Spanish heritage, don't know the difference between Spanish/Hispanic/Latino, have grown up around Black people, in black culture, with black parents. Smh.

  • Juslv374

    Here we go again. Guess somebody didn't get their wakeup call yet. Since he already admitted that he is formally uneducated, why doesnt he educate himself independently. Ignorance is bliss I see.

  • Demico Merritt

    Hell if you don't believe he's black let him believe he ain't black that doesn't insult me or I don't get offended by people saying that at all. I know who I am and I know where my people come from. And I know where I am today.
    Also as a straight man I don't get uncomfortable being around gay men. For me it only becomes uncomfortable when you know that I'm straight but you still try to push up on me. That would be me going to a gay man and trying to hook him up with the female.
    And when are people going to realize that these football players are protesting the flag or trying to disrespect the country. They're protesting and going to the knee for the mistreatment of the people living in the country. You can love and respect your country but at the same time want it to be better for the people living in it.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Nah, I don't think so. I don't think she has above average common sense or intelligence. A few weeks ago she was going back and forth with Hazel E over Waka and she posted some screenshots. The screenshots, to anyone with a brain, suggested that Waka was at the least being a little to friendly with Hazel. But you could tell by Tammy's caption and responses that Waka had mind f.cked her into thinking otherwise. IT was one of those times when someone thinks they are "doing something" or proving a point (she thought she was making Hazel E look thirsty), but it has the opposite affect and actually just makes you look stupid.

    A lot of times when she talks, it seems like she is regurgitating something she has heard someone else say. She's a pretty girl, but she's not smart IMO.

They all were saying that we are the original aboriginals of America and that we were taught the history of the slave trade wrong. He stated that we are the orginal Native Americans, when CC came here he had us shipped to AFrica and other countries and Islands, then we were reshipped back to America and given the AFrican American names. Dude said that Wacka and BOB got their information from him and that's why they round here "woke". I had to engage because I wanted to see if I really missed something because people were all agreeing so Ill keep ya posted.

    I tried not to make him feel like he sounded crazy because I was genuinely curious about where they get their information from so we shall see..

They think being mixed adds a few stars to their worth. However, people will look at a clearly looking Black male/female and threat him/her as such."

  • Noirluv45

    No, you aren't missing a thing. I don't understand what the "Cherokee" thing is especially when they dismissed Blacks from their tribe."

  • the conscious one

    He's right. He is uneducated. Go get educated and do a DNA test. There is no reason to be so ignorant now-a-days. Dominican and Cherokee aren't races. Your ass is still black!

  • Itzgoingdown

    This is the end result of 70 to 80% of generations of black kids stuck/trapped in the WORST SCHOOLS IN THEIR CITY AND STATE. Their parents can't help them academically. They went to the same horrible ghetto schools.

    This is why I have no respect for Obama. He went to the best private schools in Hawaii. He sent his kids to the best private schools in this country but told common black folk to keep their kids in ghetto schools that he did nothing to improve academically.

    No biggie. I'm talking of the term African American or black not that we aren't aboriginal. We have a huge diaspora and those terms put us in a closed minded limited box. For lack of a better term or overstanding I'm black just don't use that term much for reasons stated above and below.

    I dont think its a mixed with Native American obsession. We actually have Native Americans in our families period. Especially being from the South.. its easy to trace our Native American family ties. As a matter of fact, I know that being from the South or Im sure anywhere else is America a large percentage of Black Americans are mixed with a lot of other Races and Cultures when you look at our family dynamics.

  • hottlanta

    I wanna see him get some of that casino Cherokee Indian reservation money. I want him to do us a video to show us how much he is gonna get and a snap shot of the check.

  • Keesh5000

    Some ignorant people may think the way you speak of... but Black Americans that know their family tree and History dont care about features or hair texture. Its not about good or bad hair texture either. Its about healthy and unhealthy hair and skin

  • the conscious one

    Miss me with the bullshit.
    Negroid = black just like Caucasian = white.

  • You Could Never

    Its not totally an obsesssion per se. I would say over 70% of us blacks really ARE mixed here in US with Indian. The Natives were enslaved just like us. So by the time we got dropped off here as slaves, they were already present on plantations. Of course mixing took place. And now here we are all these years later with our bloodlines intertwined. Add in all this new age DNA quick testing and it adds fuel to their "Im mixed with Injun" fire.

  • hottlanta

    Wow that is deep.

  • Look@m3

    Yeah thanks for adding to my point which is that some people are ignorant enough for thinking like that. Its a horrible truth, but still the truth. Some Black Americans don't even care about their family tree or history. I mean we should, but some just don't care.
    I personally search because I just want to know where the hell I come from and what type of environment my people lived in and lifestyles they had, but the truth is some black folk think that just by saying they are "Native American" or part Hispanic (for example) gives them some sort of advantage but at the end of the day, ya still a colored.

  • Yoni7

    I think I'm more disturbed at THIS statement than what he wants to be labeled as....

    __________
    What exactly is he banging for? What is the ultimate goal in all of this? You got shot and now what? I need answers, Sway?

  • hottlanta

    It is not skin obsession it is HAIR obsession. Kinky hair is bad and straight hair is good. Black folks will claim their lineage is from one of those tall long hair dogs as long as the straight hair is defined as good hair.

  • Look@m3

    I read that too and I was like when did gang banging become right? Maybe I misread or something....
    Its like I survived prison, don't f with me. I killed someone, see my badge of honor or I'm a jerk, respect this jerktivity. I don't understand for the life of me. And to think, this aint even the next generation talking like this...we so screwed.

Glad to realize that he is uneducated. He kept repeating it as if that was a badge of honor.

  • QueenSuga

    First. I know some "black" people are conflicted with the term "African American", because most black people are mixed with a plethora of races and ethnicities. But to say you aren't black or You come from a tribe only?And that is likely not the case, but this is disheartening. Has society brainwashed us so we don't want to be considered black, but are only wanting to be linked with an Indian Tribe. For the record I have Native America Ancestry (Cherokee and Comanche) but my family heritage also comes from Africa (Malagasy) which I am very proud to know. We have Irish too, but we don't care. Don't deny who you clearly are.

    Once you get your results it shows the history of each area they traced your ancestry from. They made sure to tell me my Benin and Togo people sold each other into slavery. Then it gives you a % of your DNA make up for example 88% of my make up is from Africa, then it breaks that portion down into percentages based on what region or part of Africa. Then it breaks down other parts to like American, Asia and Europe.
    Dang and I just checked it and they updated the website and is providing more information from when they originally gave me my results.

Because when you're seen, when others look at you i bet its not no ohhhh hes from a tribe, hes "other" NO your're black in our eyes foo! ya mama black! period.

    Waka you are BLACK INDIAN. Just like my family. You are still BLACK. I don't like the term African American because it is misleading but that is what they are calling Black Americans now regardless of where the BLACK came from. We were all "Negro" back in the day so Native Blacks and African Slaves were eventually all rolled into the BLACK category. Your people still used COLORED facilities. Your people had to sit in the back of the bus. Your people couldn't go to white schools. You ain't special. Uneducated YES!

    I've always wonder what difference it made that many of us have Indian blood. I'm not saying that in a nasty or confrontational way to you. I try to be careful as to how I word things on the Internet because they can come off wrong. It's just a thought. It hasn't changed our plight. Indians sure don't accept us. We aren't getting paid for reparations. I have a friend who believes to one of the Montana tribes, and she got a check for $10,000 for something (I don't remember.) They get a lot of perks we don't get, but, they also get treated like crap.

We are still being shot down in the streets, treated like crap, even among Native Americans and others we are so proud to include in our family history. I just don't get why Black people are so big on the, "I'm mixed with..." mantra. I'm not saying that in a nasty way, so I hope you don't take it like that.

  • Noirluv45

    ...and you never hear of them bragging about their African heritage either. In fact, they probably don't even know what tribe they come from.

  • shun king

    Benjamin Hawkins was the federal agent assigned to the southeastern tribes in the 1790s and advised the tribes to take up slaveholding.[24] The Cherokee tribe had the most members who held black slaves, more than any other Native American nation.[32]

    In colonial North America, the first exposure that Africans and Native Americans had to each other came from Africans being imported as laborers, both indentured servants and as slaves.[10] Records from the slavery period show several cases of brutal Native American treatment of black slaves..its just just a little bit.it is a black fantasy that indians loved blacks..bet most of that indians blood come from black women being raped and not no black man marrying an indian

    Waka reminds me of a certain type of Black/African-American people, who, for some unexplained reason, are ashamed of their African heritage, so they pretend to themselves, and lie to their friends, (who laugh at them behind their backs), and make up fake-ass, bullshit ethnic backgrounds; usually Native American, because they like that better than being Black(?) You're right, he did not say that he was Native-American; he said "We got some Cherokee in us" a/k/a Native Americans, (see what I did there?), who originated from 16th century Oklahoma. He also hinted at having Dominican heritage, that I already explained, were kidnapped slaves from Africa. NEGROES: Those born in Sub-Saharan Africa. The next time Waka wants to talk dumb shit like that, he might want to introduce that hair line to some "Edge Control".

    The connection is your melanin, your hair, those are your major identifying features. That your ancestor somewhere along the line came from Africa and met another African and it goes on and on. Africa is the cradle of mankind. We were given this skin and this hair to protect us from the weather elements.... You are from Africa. You don't just have this because some Indian gave it to you.... Even these Cuban or Dominican people you are claiming have African roots and the well informed have their African tradition so do Afro Brazilians and they do not claim to not have African roots. I know this coz I dance to Afro Cuban Latin dancing and go to their drumming show. It is like a rain making ceremony....Africans are everywhere, go to Paris, generations and generations. I have even recently learnt that Ghana and west Africa isn't where all the slaves came from. Southern Africa was big on slave trade due to its close geographical location with Mozambique where the Portuguese traders would buy slave via some dam called Kariba. They can now test for cancer by using your hair strands. You dna is in your hair. You can't run away from that. It tells us a lot. i know a woman that is almost bald because she is in her fifties and flat ironing her hair so she doesn't look black. When I first met her in the changing room at work I didn't know what she was until I saw her hair. We connected and go along but I soon realised she had some insecurities. Moral of the story, this denial thing will not stop you will carry it to the grave and pass it to your little Afro kids.

    LOL. I visited Mexico, where in some places the Native American blood still boils hot. There are different tribes, but one thing stood out the most about the Mayan Indian who weren't "mixed" with the Spanish; they were pygmies. Very short people, average height is 5 feet. Most people claiming Indian, are claiming the good hair and melanin mixture, not the other characteristics.

    But he's a descendent of slaves though so he actually doesn't know more about his heritage other than he's black American.

  • NAYB

    Yeah I get that he doesn't know specifics. But as black people , we should all know by now, at the very least that our family origin is much more complex than being a black American and that our roots did not originate in America for the most post. We may not know what country, or what tribes, but that doesn't change our lineage . Ppl acting like he said eff black ppl or something.

    THIS is what I'm sayin'. They barely own a pair of draws, they slang dope for a white tee and a LV belt and a pair of J's. They live with they mama, don't have a dental plan, car or health and life insurance. They own NOTHING! Then when they die by these streets, their family is left selling chicken and fish dinners and applying for a GoFundMe insurance plan to bury their rich broke ass. I never understood that life.
