Rapper Waka Flocka Flame was anything but politically correct during an appearance on radio host Charlamagne Tha God’s show on Friday, calling gender transitioning a rebuke to God and criticizing pop culture for not promoting better values for young men and women.
“You are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did,” the rapper said. “That’s how I just feel. You rebuking God, man. God didn’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’re going to believe everything else.”
Waka Flocka later delved into what he said is the problem with the “world” right now.
“Women are afraid to be a wife and young males is afraid to be men,” he added. “It’s like it’s not cool, they’re not marketing that. They don’t market families and husbands and wives no more. They marketing young girls, you know what I’m saying? Transgenders — they’re marketing evil, man.”
He then clarified that he doesn't have anything against people's "preferences," but criticized the entertainment industry for promoting those kinds of lifestyles on TV.
Listen to his remarks via TMZ:
He later touched on problems within the black community, explaining he became lost in his life when he allowed the past to have too much influence over him.
"I know slavery happened...but guess what happening right now? If you in the hood right now, your rent is cheap as a (expletive). Why you complaining? Stack that paper," he said. "Stop buying those Jordans...stop buying those book bags, stop buying those shoes that cost $1,200. Stop that s**t!"
