Waka Flocka Flame recently sat down with NiteCap to discuss everything from President Barack Obama to perceptions of him in the industry. During the interview, the Brick Squad member spoke on upstart Chief Keef, explaining how he sees the young rapper as an example of how he was villainized and that listeners should cut him a break.
“I feel like he’s being more so labeled. He’s a 17-year-old kid,” he said. “Now, I get to see how people judge me and what I’ve seen and I couldn’t see. Instead of helping a kid, they bash a kid. Adults are supposed to teach, not punish. If you see him doing the wrong things, give him the opportunity to learn instead of bashing him. So I just feel like they overdo it. They make a kid look like a villain.”
