Waka Flocka called himself a wack rapper last month.

"By 2012, 2013, I had like $30 million," said Waka in February. "At that point in my life, if I was being real on my dead brother, why was I rapping? Da f*ck. I'm rich, I wanted to be rich. So from that time to right now, I wanted to figure out how can I become a billionaire and a multi-millionaire off of business. Because I did it with rap. I was a wack rapper, like I knew I was wack but I was real. My realness overcame my wackness."

Now he's explaining why.

Waka recently spoke with Rap-Up TV and said he called himself a wack rapper so others would realize how much he actually influenced Hip Hop. [Jump to 2:40 mark]

"It was more reverse psychology," he explained. "It was more so of this generation and the people that got power and feel that way. You know, I be seeing make these little lists that say 'Influential people of the decade.' And I be sitting here like, 'Yo, Hip Hop never sounded like this before me.' Who's more influential than that? Okay, cool I'mma wack rapper I guess. Let me say I'm wack just so y'all can actually hear people say 'No this guy's actually the GOAT, one of the GOATS. I'm not saying I'm the GOAT. I actually be sitting next to them by default."

Do you agree with Waka's reasoning?
