Waka Flocka Flame explains to MTV, that it was Tupac’s alias Makaveli, that inspired the title for his new album. He even hit the books and read up on philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli.
“Tupac introduced me to the [writing] of Machiavelli. That’s why I made that. I can’t just, ‘Oh, Tupac did that, so I’m gonna do that too.’ If people read, they would love that man. That man is a mind-game genius. I read the Machiavelli war-tactic books, his biography, everything. That man is just like sticks and stones, bad.
You see Waka Flocka, what do you think? Negativity. You read Machiavelli? Negativity. My brain, I’m so sharp, I can play stupid on the camera and they think I’m dumb. So really. you just playing yourself. I’m so ahead of y’all. That’s for the bloggers.”
Thank you Juaquin. I appreciate the clarity!

Who knew that Waka Flocka Flame and Tupac were such close friends? I certainly had no idea and neither did the dude in the black shirt, who looks almost as stunned as I would have!
Waka Flocka, fresh off the high of his first magazine cover, compared tatts with the late great rapper’s look-a-like backstage during Hot 97’s Summer Jam yesterday.
I’m assuming this is a look-a-like. I mean… Tupac IS dead right? Am I trippin??
