Earlier today Waka FLocka Flame’s mother Deb Antney stopped by New York’s Power 105.1 and chopped it up with The Breakfast Club, providing a look behind the scenes of some of rap’s most complicated relationships. Antney started off talking about her beginnings in hip-hop, saying that her career in management started when she gave birth to her first son back in 1981. Throughout the interview, she opened up about her relationships with Nicki Minaj (“That’s the daughter I never had”), French Montanna (“Frenchie needs media training”) and her complicated history with Gucci Mane (“Everybody got issues”). Even though Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane have been at odds with each other lately, Antey sounded hopeful about the future. “Anything can be fixed,” she said. “It’s just a matter if it stays in place.”
The Mizay entertainment CEO also discussed why she laughed when Waka first played his music for her, her neglect of OJ da Juiceman and her edgy relationship with New York. “This is my city,” she said. “I popped off two of the biggest artists here in this city and this city turned on me. This was the city I was trying to put back on and they turned on me.” Listen to the whole interview above.
