Waka Flocka Flame defends Kanye, talks therapy and hip hop culture on social media
At the beginning of this month, MSNBC’s ‘The Beat with Ari Melber’ welcomed a surprising duo: Waka Flocka Flame and Russ Feingold (former Wisconsin Senator). They exchanged on a lot of subjects starting with the importance of hip hop culture on Instagram, but also how the rapper used music as a therapy, and how supportive of Kanye West he is.
Flocka also expressed his bad feelings towards Instagram, as it had become THE dominant social media to get hip hop news. According to him, people need to have a wider range of choices and styles of music to discover, instead of only focusing on ‘big/popular stars’. He recalled starting on Myspace and having people liking him for him, for his real self and not for what he showed to the world.
He later went a little more personal about himself when he said music worked as a therapy for him. Music allowed him to express his feelings verbally instead of physically and made him fight with his lower-self to become a better man.
During MSNBC’ show, the segment “Fallback Friday” discusses about what needs to “fall back”. For Waka Flocka Flame, Kanye’s haters need to calm down and let him be great. He defended Kanye West after the release of his new Yeezy line and the on-going hate about the “Yeezy Crocs”. According to Flocka, Yeezy took the ‘Croc’ to another level and even called him a genius in the industry. He also added that he will forever be supportive to Kanye.
