Waka Flocka Flame Interested In Nas Collaboration
Waka Flocka Flame marked a career milestone today with the release of his debut album Flockaveli.
But the Brick Squad emcee also has his sights set on achieving a surprise pairing with Queensbridge legend Nas.
Several months ago, Waka Flocka cited Nas as his choice for the best rapper of all time.
With his name continuing to gain momentum via his well-received singles, Flocka is open to working with more artists outside his camp, as he did on his latest hit “No Hands.”
When given a list of emcees, Flocka became visibly excited at the idea of working with Nas.
“Excuse my language but hell yeah!” he exclaimed.
Although Nas is primarily lauded for his highly poetic rhymes, the veteran lyricist has experience with crunk music via his work with Lil Jon.
The two worked together on Jon’s all-star track “Grand Finale,” and the Bravehearts single “Quick to Back Down.”
Because of that, Waka Flocka Flame doesn’t feel he’d have to modify his approach to compliment Nas’ style.
In fact, he argues that trying to change his presentation would take away from the potency of the proposed track.
“My content, I’m on the same style,” Waka Flocka stated. “I can’t change for nobody. I guess people will like you for you. When you change you’re not being you, and then they won’t like you.”
Nas is currently working on his untitled 10th album, and preparing for the release of Lost Tapes 2 on December 14.
Waka Flocka Flame’s new album Flockaveli features production from Lex Luger, and appearances from French Montana, Uncle Murda, Pastor Troy and Gudda Gudda.
