Following the release of a picture that showed Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane appearing at Career Day at a local school, a number of people were quick to express their opinions on Gucci’s appearance at the middle school. And while appearing on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Waka Flocka offered up his take on the Career Day controversy.
Waka shared that he believes rappers, and even athletes, aren’t the best of choices when it comes to Career Day programs. He went on to explain that since rapping requires no education, students might be encouraged to dropout if they want to pursue a career in rap.
“When I was a kid rappers wasn’t that cool,” said Waka. “They more so glorified people that made the world better. I feel like you should have a rapper, sometimes not even an athlete, come see a kid because now a kid don’t want to be a cop, a lawyer, an astronaut. It’s like brainwashing. The kids see a rapper so now they all want to be a rapper so why go to school cause school can’t teach nothing about rapping? Man, you don’t need no education for rap period. A man on the corner could make a song called ‘Jolly Ranchers’ and he the next American star. I seen the Asian man dancing, ‘Gangnam Style,’ like what is that? It’s poppin’ though.”
During his appearance on The Breakfast Club, the Brick Squad rapper also shared his thoughts on the recent drive-by shooting Rick Ross was involved in.
“It’s what you say out your mouth that you bring around you too. You know what I mean? That’s what my boy rapping about. That’s what it’s gonna be then. Cause it’s people out there that’s really on it. They on it, every day. You gotta respect the game,” the rapper explained.
Waka Flocka’s interview comes just days after the release of his new DuFlocka Rant 2 mixtape which features Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, French Montana and more.
