Waka Flocka Earns RESPECT

 Like it or not, Waka Flocka is earning his RESPECT.  Elliott Wilson, editor in chief of RESPECT Magazine, released his first cover featuring the Queens born, Atlanta raised emcee Waka Flocka Flames.  At first, I was surprised and disappointed with his selection since the first few issues featured established hip hop heavyweights like Jay-Z, 2 Pac, Eminem & T.I.  But after thinking about it for awhile and following YN’s timeline all night, I RESPECT his choice and think it was a smart move.  Waka has been on fire all year releasing hit after hit.  Even if you don’t like his music, you have to RESPECT his hustle.  The cover has gotten people talking about the issue, which is exactly what he was hoping for.  Mr. Wilson made a bold move by putting Waka on his first cover.  That’s what bosses do and that’s why he’s the HNIC over there… RESPECT!

  3. It’s not really fair for everyone to blame people like Waka Flocka and Soullja Boy for making music that a lot of people like.

    If real hip hop heads really want to hear Kweli, Immortal Technique, Ras Kass etc. on the radio they got to go out and support them by buying their damn albums. Or tell them to make hits. But then if they make a hit record they “sold out.” There’s no pleasing some people.

    Can’t hate on Waka for making music that a lot of people are willing to buy. It’s not my shit, but more power to him.
