Waka Flocka Flame Says He Created Punk Rap, Talks Kilo Ali With Nardwuar

Waka Flocka labels himself the first ever punk rapper, speaks on the Atlanta artists who came before him.

Following a recent performance in Vancouver, Canada, Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame was unsurprisingly treated to an off-the-wall interview courtesy of Canadian interviewer and iamOTHER personality Nardwuar. Joined by fellow rapper Wooh Da Kid, Waka touched on his preference in BBQ sauces, his love for SWV, and even labeled himself the first ever punk rapper.

While speaking on the Brick Squad rappers typically high energy live performances the topic of punk rap was brought up by Nardwuar and Waka didn’t hesitate in taking responsibility for the creation of the genre.

“Punk rap is the genre I created. This is punk rap when you listen to me. Yeah, first punk rapper. Thee first,” Waka revealed in a video posted on HipHop-n-More.com.  

The interview of course didn’t conclude without a few mentions of the Atlanta artists who helped pave the way for artists now including Sammy Sam, Kilo Ali, and MC Shy D.

“You my nigga for this Kilo Ali right here. This the shit right here. Kilo Ali, that’s when I originally like first moved to Georgia,” said the rapper. “To the SWATS, to Diplomat Drive, Campbellton Road. Kilo Ali was Atlanta. You know what I’m saying? He was the guy to turn the parties up. Back when Freaknik was out. He’s Atlanta man. He’s one of em.”

Waka Flocka Flame is currently on the road for The Friends Fans & Family Tour featuring Wooh Da Kid and Reema Major.

    Waka doesn't rap and hes not punk...there's no angst in his music. Beastie Boys were the first to do punk rap, and shit, even Ice-T had a punk rap band.

  • Punk hip hop

    Beastie Boys - "Aglio E Olio" ep They play there own instruments and everything. Waka can't even do Hip hop.

    First Punk Rock rapper? Wow. That is just retarded. When Hip Hop was developing (early 1980's NYC) Afrika Bambatta and the Punk kids went to the same club nights at places like Negril, The Roxy, The Ritz, and Danceteria. Debbie Harry from Blondie was in fucking 'Wild Style'. Musically, The Beastie Boys started out as a Punk Rock band (Polly Wog Stew EP 1982). Bad Brains, punk rock O.G.'s incorporated Hip Hop elements into their albums in the 1980's (see 'Quickness' 1986). Mike Muir from the Suicidal Tendencies straight-up rapped on 'Join The Army' 1987. I could go on and on but you get the pictues.

    body count is heavy metal. To me thats the most rock roll a rapper I've heard of.

  • Anonymous

    Did he forget about ICE T and body count. Yall reaching with Beastie Boys. Its nothing punk rap about them. If thats the case Wicked by Ice Cube and Dr Dre is punk rap

  • eric

    punk raps been around for like half a decade now. p.o.s. has been doin it since the begining of his career and frontsa punk band too this is a joke. odd future is more punk rock then this dude

  • yeaaahh

    Has he even heard of Zack de la Rocha and Rage Against the Machine? Beastie Boys?? Even certain Run-DMC songs.. Those guys were punk rappers. Punk isn't just about the energy. Also, punk lyrics are about political and social awareness---and Flocka's lyrics are horrible.

  • timmm

    P.O.S. is the only punk-rap I know, and lightyears ahead of this loser

    This guy is getting dumber and dumber GFOH Leave rap alone you non talented moron

  • Max

    @Anon I'm glad someone else on this damn site has some sense... the first punk rapper?? you've got to be purely retarded to make such an outlandish statement.... I mean hip hop was established at the same exact time as Punk Rock...they grew off of each other... damn moron. Joel from Green Day should back slap this guy with his guitar.

    • timmmm

      Yeah Max I see the point you're tryin got make but Green Day certainly wasn't the best example.

    • yeaaahh

      I think you mean Billie Joe, but I agree with you. And Green Day IS a punk band, even though later in their career they kinda moved along the lines of alternative, but they're still punk.

    • Anonymous

      dude, there is no one in green day named joel, and if you think they are punk rock then you are a moromn.

    Didn't know there was such a thing as "punk rap".

    • Anon

      If there is such a thing, I would think that the Beastie Boys were the first. I mean "Fight For Your Right" is basically a rap version of Black Flag's "TV Party".
