In an interview with the radio talk show The Breakfast Club on Friday (Sept. 18), rapper Waka Flocka Flame made some pretty bold statements when discussing a range of topics including politics, the transgender community, psychiatry and more.
On the transgender community:
“Women are afraid to be a wife and young males are afraid to be men. It’s not cool, they’re not marketing that. They don’t market families and husbands and wives no more. They’re marketing young girls, transgenders, they’re marketing evil, man. Evil is marketed. I ain’t got nothing against anybody’s preferences, but putting it on TV, that’s crazy, man.”
On Caitlyn Jenner:
“I ain’t saying nothing against like a Bruce Jenner, you follow me, you are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did. That’s how I just feel. You rebuking God. God ain’t put those feelings in you, that’s the devil playing tricks on your mind. That’s a test from God.”
When it comes to Donald Trump, Waka Flocka isn’t much of a fan:
“I ain’t got nothing against him, Donald Trump is Donald Trump, but as a person, as a citizen, and as a human being, do I want to put a man in power that’s money hungry or he’s striving for people? Is your passion for people or is your passion for money? That man passion is for money and he ain’t wrong for that. He the best marketing man in America and he ain’t wrong for that. So you think he ain’t gonna market a campaign? That’s a walk in the park, man. If you’re not for the people, why should you be president?”
Speaking of the 2016 election, earlier this year, the rapper teased to his own ambitions to run for president, even releasing a campaign video. When asked about it during the interview, he said he only made the announcement to “enlighten” his peers.
