Waka Flocka Flame Covers XXL Magazine, Calls Brick Squad "The New Wu-Tang"

Waka Flocka Flame also speaks on his hipster appeal.

XXL magazine has revealed its latest cover, which features Waka Flocka Flame and the tagline "Everybody Loves Waka!"

During his interview for the cover story, the "No Hands" rapper spoke on how his Brick Squad crew is the new version of camps that include Wu-Tang Clan, Cash Money Records and Roc-A-Fella.

"I got a whole label, man. We fire. We the new Wu-Tang, Roc-A-Fella," he said. "We what these labels are trying to create right now. We the new Cash Money. Squad! Flockaveli was the return of gangsta. I brought gangsta back, man.”

He also spoke on his hipster appeal, stating that his younger brother is the epitome of hipster so that gives him respect for them. "I’m a hipster in my own sense. My little brother’s a hipster a little. Like, he’s a real fuckin’ hipster. Like, a rock-star hipster, so I fuck with ’em. U grew up fuckin’ with ’em. So it don’t matter. I’m with that. I smoke harder than them no matter what. I’m a 'Flockster.'"

The latest issue of XXL hits stands on May 29th.

  • Spida

    I love it how it says 'What happened to the message in hip-hop?' right next to waka flocka

  • Axel

    It is really sad when artists like this become famous. Waka flaka and all of his little cronies possess next top no lyrical ability. Rhyming nothing but simple syllables and the word "nigga". I fear for the future of hip hop if artists like Waka Flaka, Rick Ross, and French Montha continue to gain publicity, yet artists who have been giving music their entire heart and soul for years are simply going to get pushed to the backburner.

    Proof is in the numbers, and they aren't adding up for Brick Squad. Take away Waka and the rest of their squad are literally laying bricks at a construction site.

  • X

    Wow, this dude thinks he and his coon sqauad are on the same level as the WU.....WOW!!!! Well then again, its not suprising since the only people that are playing his garbage and rice are those who have a lower intellect in general. Waka flocka is for people who don't know if the world is round or not. Wu for people who know what the astro plane is.

  • u

    Are you kidding me? Wu-tang was the epitome of lyrical...Waka is just a drug addict. So is all of Brick Squad...why do you think it's called that. Just look at him on the cover, what an idiot. Waka's IQ is most definitely below room temperature. Waka is the result of way too much syrup, pills, and skiing those white slopes wayyyy too much.

    • Anonymous

      drug addicts? yeah they smoke kill unlike wu tang who smoked crack

    • anonymous

      YOU CALL HIM AN IDIOT YET HE MAKES MORE MONEY IN A QUARTER THAN YOU'LL EVER SEE IN YOUR WHOLE LIFE SO WHAT DOES THAT MAKE YOU MY NIGGA?

    Yo people still care about XXL? They've fallen off since those stupidass Freshmen of the Year lists. You want real rap magazines, go for the Source. And don't give me that bullshit about the Source. Neither Benzino nor his bitch, David Mays, own the Source anymore.

    COME ON XXL, Waka Flocka on the front cover!!! This guy is fucking trash and anybody who even considers this guy a rapper is an idiot! Trust me, nobody other than kids is checking for his so-called music. See, this is why I can't fuck with XXL. I'm never buying this shitty magazine again. I hope they go out of business promoting this bullshit.

  • nickrazor2000

    Dear god where do i start? compairing brick squad to Wu-Tang is like compairing soujah boy to Biggy Smalls. He looks like a complete idiot and raps the same. Everybody loves waka??? Damn XXL, yall are way off. Im never reading that magazine again.

    • Alf Capone

      he probably said it knowing it get a reaction outta people. i guess it gets people talkin about him

    this guy should never open his mouth or do interviews because he always makes himself look like an idiot

  • erick_villa_lobos@yahoo.com

    I don't care what group you're affiliated with but n one WILL EVER hold a torch to the legacy Wu-Tang created. None of these crews will even be relevant 20 years from now. Stop comparing yourself to the greatness of golden age hip-hop groups and create your own movement.

  • wow...

    i hate everything about this fuck. I also hate the magazine cover, "From hood to Hipsters, everybody loves Waka"...you fucking kidding me?

    Glad I stopped reading XXL years ago due to their dickriding commercialism. The new Wu-Tang? Jesus... I wish hologram 2pac would stomp this fag out.

  • GOD

    Ed from Good Burger claims the All-That Cast is just like Wu-Tang and the ROC. It's too bad with the names on the side I would assume they'd have someone who's actually doing something on the interview list. Oh well. Also. He looks like he should have the words "Got Crack?" Underneath his picture.

  • bizzalls

    All right, now I really hate this fuckin faggot. Comparing them to WU-Tang, what a complete jackass.

    new wu tang? too bad brick squad doesnt make classic records lol
