In October, Waka Flocka Flame was listed as the number eight rapper on MTV's "Hottest MC's in the Game" list. The news came as a shock to Waka. After discovering he was included on the list, he said he thought the list was only for lyrical rappers. Multiple times, Waka Flocka said he does not want to be a rapper.
The only reason Waka Flocka Flame became a rapper was because he wanted to make money. Waka, along with many other rappers, has been famous for being a "swagger rapper." He said he would not trade his position for any other in the world. Waka said he was very blessed this year.
Later, he was asked if he wished he was more lyrical. Waka Flocka said he could really care less. He is making music in order to take care of himself and his family. As long as his fans love his music and he continues to make money, Waka Flocka Flame will continue to make this type of music. He is the first "swagger rapper" to simply come out and admit his true feelings about the rap game.
