Waka Flocka Flame appeared on The Breakfast Club today (September 18) and criticized society for breaking down the traditional family structure.
“You know what the world is today? Women afraid to be a wife and young males is afraid to be men,” Waka Flocka Flame says. “It’s not cool. They’re not marketing that. They don’t market husbands and wives no more. They’re marketing young girls, transgenders. They’re marketing evil. It’s really evil.”
He says that the glorification of the transgender lifestyle, specifically through Caitlyn Jenner’s television show, I Am Cait, is harming the youth.
“I ain’t got nothing against nobody’s preferences, but putting it on TV, that’s crazy,” he says. “Kids is the only people watching TV. You know adults is too busy, man. They’re trying to control life. So you can’t stop your kids from watching certain channels. They’re gonna watch it.
“I ain’t saying nothing against Bruce Jenner,” he continues. “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, man. God ain’t put them feelings in you, man. That’s the Devil playing tricks on your mind. That’s a test from God. If you can’t outbeat that one task and you believe that, then you can believe everything else and you going down that way.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the Atlanta rapper explains why he doesn’t wear diamond jewelry anymore. He details seeing a teenage boy in another country who had never owned a pair of shoes.
“I was giving my diamond chains and breaking it apart,” he says. “I’m dead serious. It changed my perception on life.”
Waka says that he doesn’t see a need to prove his wealth to anyone.
“You know I got paper,” he says. “Why I gotta keep showing you every day? Why I gotta keep buying these new cars? Why? Why I gotta keep buying brands that ain’t doing nothing for the people that I’m around?”
Waka Flocka Flame announced in April that he is running for president of the United States. Issues on his platform include education and empowering women.
