During an interview with BBC1 Radio’s Charlie Sloth, Waka spoke about his strained relationship with his former mentor — essentially calling out La Flare and questioning the man’s heart and street cred.
“A [reunion] ain’t never happening,” Waka Flocka said. “That Brick Squad was history. I enjoyed it, I loved it, it made me who I am today. It made him who he was today. But enough is enough, man. The Internet is not the streets.”
He then ended the interview with this little gem: “Hey, since [Gucci] been out, has he shot a video in East Atlanta?”
When asked about “Was My Dawg” after the artwork was revealed (clearly showing a silhouette of Gucci), Waka insisted it wasn’t a “diss” song and, instead, was simply facts on wax. “The truth is the truth,” he said. “Some stuff you gotta get off your chest or it’s gonna make you, like, an angry person.”
The song has now been released. And while Waka doesn’t mention Gucci by name, there’s no questioning who the target of the song is.
Always yelling Brick Squad, always talking fam first/
When your ass got locked up, you turned on the fam first
