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."
