Waka Flocka recently sparked some controversy over comments he made on Sway in the Morning, where he stated that he does not identify as a Black man. After some backlash, the Atlanta rapper is doubling down on his statements and further explaining his thought process.
Hopping on Instagram earlier today, he addressed the issue. “Man, I be seeing y’all going crazy over the shit I was saying on Sway,” he started. “Niggas be like, ‘Yo, Waka said he not Black.’ You right. I’m not the Black America call me. It’s just hard for a nigga to be from the slums, the ghetto, the hood whatever niggas want to say we from. And you become this celebrity, you get to walk around the world. You get to travel around the world. You get to touch the people and you get to find out the truth.”
He expounded on his thoughts in the caption. “Instead of judging me ask yourselves why…Why Waka ghetto ass talking like this. Why Waka saying all this woke shit. Why Trump not…Why the media ignore real issues. Why we support xyz. We all have to fix ourselves to see the real problems #HaveABlessedOne,” Waka typed.
The Flockaveli 2 rapper added, “I’m living in the spirit. I wish Dick Gregory was alive. All I want is for US to do is THINK. tradition is truth!!!! As a human we could never like this thing we don’t understand ? I talk from experience. I been around the ? and my community ain’t the only ones struggling we just the focus. I stand on my words IM NOT BLACK.”
Does he have a point?
