Successful and outspoken rapper Waka Flocka has not only invited in his fans into his personal life with hit reality television appearances, but the hip-hop entrepreneur shares with Nick Cannon Mornings how his life views changed when his younger brother took his own life.
Flocka tells Nick that while he has always stood for his community, it wasn’t until the passing of his brother that the rapper began to pay more attention to his mental health and the well being of those he loves and cares about. Wack also speaks on season two of his “What The Flocka” show, a newly released project, how he landed his “Jay-Z deal”, and dives into the importance of focusing on Black Pride and Black Pride conversations instead of the “cliche” ‘Black Lives Matter movement that has grown in popularity.
Police Officers are supposed to be compared to Superman. And when you look like the Joker, it’s obviously you’re the villain. For me, that’s what I say. But where I stand at in all of this man, I like the Black Lives Matter but it’s kind of cliche saying “Black Lives Matter” when we know our lives matter. It should be “Black Pride Matters” because let’s be prideful to be black!
