Somebody get Waka Flocka. In a recent radio interview, the rapper said that he wasn't black... Just let that marinate for a second...
Waka is known for saying some crazy ish every now and again. But this time, we're not sure if he'll be able to recover from this hot mess of a statement. "I'm not African-American at all," Waka said. "My folks is not from Africa. A lot of people in this room's folks ain't from Africa. Might be a couple, but people just don't understand."
He continued: "I asked my grandma, 'Yo grandma, what's your background?' She said 'Red foot and black tail Indian.' I said, 'What?' She said, 'Yeah.' My mother and my father, we 100% Indians.' I asked my other grandmother, and we got Cherokee in us, and European and Italian. A little Dominican."
After these comments, Waka added: "I'm uneducated. I'm confused. But, I'm damn sure not black. You're not gonna call me black."
Since the Love And Hip Hop star said these words, fans have been reacting -- and scratching their heads -- about his statement. Read some tweets about Waka saying he isn't black below.
