Waka Flocka Confirms Suge Knight Will Help Steer Career [XXcLusive]

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

    If he was really that smart. Which apparently he just shows an IQ of an idiot that’s stuck in 6th grade for 4 years. He should realize that the guy got a huge bad reputation! Suge destroyed his record label; he destroyed Irv Gotti’s record label The Inc. (Murder Inc. Records to some of people); and he recruits non-rapping gang members on there. If your tape / freestyle / demo suck? You’re getting jumped for over 5 minutes point blank period. I appreciate the fact that Crooked I is now in a new, and better situation with SlaughterHouse / Shady. But this???? Flocka showed he can make hype music, and that he sucks worst than Soulja Boy in rapping. His career now is going to be his life span. Good luck with the career homie!!!

    Folks call it hating. Some of you fools don’t realize that the wacker rapper is using street status to get shot up. OH YEAH!!!! Can we also mention that Suge Knight is responsible of 2Pac’s death?
