Earlier this year, Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane had a falling out. The two former collaborators traded disses via Twitter after Gucci said Flocka was dropped from 1017 Brick Squad. Recently, Waka shared more about his relationship with Gucci Mane in an interview with The Combat Jack Show, saying that he does not feel Gucci was his mentor.
“Mentor?” he questioned when asked about Gucci. However, Waka seemed to take a step back before speaking more on the matter. “I ain’t even gonna go against him. I feel I come out of character when I do it. You right. But I feel like nobody helped me do shit. Not my momma. Not Gucci. My first album, Gucci ain’t even on it. Period. My second album, he ain’t on it. I put all my music together, got all my producers. This shit Waka.”
Waka went on to say he thinks Gucci Mane may be jealous of his success.
“I don’t know the secret feelings that man got. From my personal opinion, it gotta be jealousy or envy. I don’t know but I ain’t lookin’ for no answers because once you say it, it’s done. Then I heard him say his Twitter got hacked. I guess God hacked it.”
Flocka was referring to Gucci’s Twitter post regarding him being dropped from 1017 Brick Squad. Soon after their original Twitter dispute, a Warner Bros. Records representative said Gucci’s Twitter account was hacked. When this was revealed to Waka, he stated that the hacking theory was false.
