The rumors are true. Suge Knight will officially be extending a helping hand to Waka Flocka Flame’s career. Knight will be assisting Waka in overseeing his Brick Squad Monopoly West record company, as well as brokering movie deals for the animated rapper, Waka confirmed with XXL.
“It’s valid. It ain’t no rumors. It’s what it is,” Waka said about working with the Death Row Records co-founder. “You gotta really start pulling in people in the game who know the game. Suge is not the only one. I’ma start snatching in the real ones. Suge helped me get a good movie deal. Now I need to get on the TV screen. Ain’t nothing wrong with fuckin’ with some Gs. I fuck with Master P too. They’re just good for information, homie.
“He’s helping me oversee the company,” Waka added about Knight. “I’m not trying to be ‘Pac, I’m not trying to be Death Row. I’m Brick Squad Monopoly. My mother is still my manager. I ain’t changing shit. It is what it is. But it’s like having Jordan and Kobe. Why not play with both?”
Waka also shared that he’ll be releasing two mixtapes tomorrow. One called Lock Out with French Montana and the other is Waka Flocka James 3 which features Brick Squad Monopoly members Whooh Da Kid and Slim Dunkin. Waka’s next solo LP is due later this year as well. Still, the Atlanta transplant has higher aspirations than just rapping.
“Fuck accomplishing goals as a artist,” he said. “I wanna accomplish goals as a CEO now. That’s the shit I’m on right now.” –Shaheem Reid
