In multiple interviews over the past week, Waka Flocka has said he isn't black.
“My folks is not from Africa,” he told Sway on his radio show. “A lot of people in this room's folks ain't from Africa. Might be a couple, but people just don't understand.…I'm uneducated. I'm confused. But I'm damn sure not Black. You're not gonna call me Black."In another interview with Ebro in the Morning, he said he was Native American (Cherokee, Blackfoot, and Redtail Indian) with a little European.
A lot of folks aren't believing him. So he jumped on IG to further explain himself.
“I been seeing y’all going crazy with this shit I been saying on Sway,” he says. “Niggas be like ‘Yo, Waka said he not black.’ You’re right. I’m not the black America calls me. It’s just hard for a nigga to be from the slums, the ghetto, the hood, whatever, and when you become this celebrity you get to walk the world, get to travel around the world, get to touch the people, and you get to find out the truth. “When you get back home in what you call America and you start telling the truth,” he continues. “People you see that’s in your community that’s still plugged in the matrix, trapped into what society tells you is reality, and you know it’s not reality, and you know it’s not the truth and it’s hard to explain it cause you truly learning still, you experiencing false statements and false lifestyles, and it’s hard to explain. “But, just know my nigga, I’m black,” he says while putting up air quotes. “But I ain’t the black America say I am. Get the fuck out the matrix, y’all.”
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 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 I told y'all from the beginning of my rap career. I'm not rapping to be the best. I rap to be the realist that EVER did it. We all slaves it's just my community was tortured
Does that clear things up for you?
