Waka Flocka Flame Agrees He Has No Lyrical Skills
Waka Flocka Flame has been labeled by critics as a rapper with “no lyrical skills” since the debut of his single ‘O Let’s Do It.’ Surprisingly, the ATL based rapper agrees with his critics and says he doesn’t have any intentions on becoming one.
“I ain’t got nothing to do with lyrics,” Waka said in a recent interview with Shade 45. “I don’t have time for lyrics. That’s why I don’t trip when n—– be like, ‘Man, shawty can’t rap.’ The n—– that everyone say is lyrical they ain’t got no shows. I been on tour for the last two years. I didn’t get into rap to freestyle. I don’t even care about selling records, as long as I get them shows for $15,000 four to five days out the week, I’m happy.”
Despite admitting to being a subpar lyricists, Waka’s shortcomings aren’t putting a dent in his aspirations to continue making music. According to AllHipHop, the Gucciman protege has a goal to release twenty street albums by 2011.
“I don’t think it’s up to the artists to be like, ‘I need to drop my album because I’m hot.’ I feel like the people gotta be like, ‘Shawty need to drop an album, f— them mixtapes.’ I don’t feel like I deserve an album. I don’t feel like I’ve put in enough work … I’ma put out mixtapes. That’s what I’m about. That’s what got me poppin and I’m gonna live by that.”
