One can be easily taken aback by Waka Flocka Flame’s interviews, because his actual personality differs from what his artist persona depicts. This can be seen yet again in the Atlanta by way of Queens native’s recent sit down with NiteCap host Peter Bailey.
The duo kept it very candid in a discussion that ranged in topics — they spoke on everything from Waka getting engaged to his views on television showing provocative things that affect children to his feelings on Gucci Mane.
It’s rare to see a rapper boast about marriage. However, the Brick Squad Monopoly founder admits that love is a new terrain. Now due to be wedded, he says “If I could tell you what love feel like, I’d be a liar, because it’s still new every time I wake up.”
Waka revealed that he’s been on and off with his fiancée for years, but he was never in a mind state to commit. After realizing that groupies come a dime a dozen, the “Round of Applause” rhymer reconnected with his lost love and became a second father to her five-year-old daughter Charlie.
“It make you become a man; I’m her hero. I can’t let her [Charlie] down,” said Waka on taking on a fatherhood role. “If I’m the man she looks up to in her life and I let her down, she’s gonna expect that from every other man from this day forward.”
That’s love. Hear Waka Flocka Flame speak more in the full interview below.
