Gucci Mane Says He Was ‘Never Not Cool’ With Waka Flocka
Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane recently discussed his upcoming ‘Ferrari Boys‘ album with Brick Squad protege Waka Flocka Flame, announcing that “the perfect time is now” for their long-awaited collaboration.
Although Gucci and Waka Flocka’s relationship is back on track, the two appeared to have gotten a bit, well, cold last year, when Gucci briefly parted ways with longtime manager Debra Antney, who is Waka’s mother. In an interview with Complex, Gucci acknowledged that, while the two were not exactly speaking during that period, things were never “not cool” between them.
“Me and Waka were never not cool so I don’t know where you get that from,” Gucci explained. “There was a period of time I wasn’t speaking to him. But it wasn’t no bad thing about that. We just wasn’t talking at the time… We feeling each other right now. I’m feeling his swag. He’s feeling mine. I’m feeling his music right now and he’s feeling my music right now so we just came together and said let’s combine.”
Gucci, who recently made headlines with his garish ice cream cone face tattoo, continued to state that the two artists would return to their solo careers following the ‘Ferrari Boys’ album. “We’ve been talking about putting this album out for the last two years,” Gucci said. “Since we formed Brick Squad, we been saying we’re gonna come out with a group album. So the perfect time is now. We’re gonna come out with our group album and then we’ll come back out with our solo albums.”
Gucci and Waka are also hard at work on a new reality show, which will give fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse of their “Rock ‘N’ Roll” lifestyle. “We show everyday life. What we get into in studio and at our shows. We just ordinary people with a crazy Rock ‘N’ Roll lifestyle,” Gucci told MTV. “Because of the music we make, people think that’s what we do all the time — but we got a real family life. We got heart.”
Gucci and Waka’s ‘The Ferrari Boys’ album has yet to receive a release date.
