Waka Flocka Flame Details Coping With Brother Kayo Redd's Passing

Waka Flocka Flame also says his friendship with Gucci Mane is "over."

Waka Flocka Flame recently spoke about the December passing of his younger brother, Kayo Redd. During an interview with Washington, D.C. radio station WKYS, Flocka spoke about how his life has changed since Redd's passing

"After that situation, I detoxed for like seven days," Waka says in the interview. "I changed my diet. I became 85 percent vegan. I just felt like I had to cleanse myself…I've been through that before, so to me that’s will power because if I sit there and mope, a lot of things could go bad. That boy had a lot of stress on him. It’s a lot of things that go on behind doors that people don’t know about...like it’s a lot of stress that come with this game. The strong survive. The family is good, though. Life goes on. That’s the motto for me, life goes on. If my eyes ain’t closed and I’m not breathing, I’m not hurting."

Waka Flocka Flame Speaks On Gucci Mane Differences

Life has also gone on despite a feud with a longtime collaborator, Gucci Mane. During this interview, Waka also spoke about how his relationship with Gucci has changed over time. 

"It’s over for him," Flame says. "The only thing Gucci I wear is the clothing line. Like as a friend, it's over. For me to risk my life, give my life, give my loyalty, give my friendship—to see somebody treat it like it was some ink on a paper? Nah, man. I’m super big on loyalty, but me and Gucci separated our differences like a year and a half ago...like signed from each other. I just felt like I wasn’t going to be the one to come out. I feel like me and him got two different outlooks. I want to be a successful Forbes List man. I don’t want to be a successful hood nigga. Three people in my family graduated. I’m trying to break that chain. I just want to be different. I can’t be strung out on XYZ drugs. I just can’t do it." 

In December, Waka was asked about his thoughts on Gucci Mane.

"Who is that?" Waka Flocka Flame said at the time. "He don't exist to me. I don't got time for nobody, my watch stopped on me man."

    Say what you want about Waka lack of lyrics ect, but he has matured more and extremely quicker than any other rapper I can think of off the top of the head. Tip my hat to him the mann. 2 years ago he was saying f school now he is talking about education,touring internationally and taking advantage of business opportunity's out there , investing and how big the world is.
