Wiz Khalifa has no issue with Waka Flocka Flame. The Pittsburgh rapper maintains that he’s in too much of a positive space to even entertain the notion of beef. “I don’t have problems with people, because if I do, I address it,” he said during a Wednesday appearance on “RapFix Live.” “If I feel someone disrespected me or if I feel like somebody was mentioning me in an indirect way I’ma find out how to talk to that person and then we’ll squash it from there.”
There have been rumors of a Wiz and Waka tiff, but it wasn’t until Flocka’s December interview with DJ Kay Slay on his Shade 45 satellite radio show that eyebrows began to rise. During the interview, Waka said that Wiz had “no swag” and “hyped” his way to the top.
Rather than address his feelings in the media, Khalifa said he’d rather wait to speak to the “O Let’s Do It” rapper face to face. “What would I say to him? I really want to say it to him. We’ll save it for that, it don’t gotta be a public thing. It don’t gotta be a peace meeting or nothing like that.”
On Tuesday, Waka appeared on Angie Martinez’s Hot 97 radio show in New York, and when he was asked about his problems with Wiz, Flocka said the issue was “deaded,” but he didn’t back down from his original statement. “I voiced my opinion because it’s true and it’s facts,” he said before making some type of amends. “That’s a nice guy he makes good music, I got cousins who like his music.”
Whatever the case, Wiz won’t feed into the negativity. “I never felt no ill will, he has his lane and when his songs come on in the club, people go crazy,” Wiz said. “And people like to get high to Wiz Khalifa, so get used to it, baby.”
Do you believe that there is serious underlying beef between Wiz Khalifa and Waka Flocka or is it all just media hype? Tell us in the comments.
