Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame have both inflicted damage on their long-standing friendship and working relationship. Back in March, Gucci tweeted that Waka had been dropped from Brick Squad and called him a “disloyal lil n***a.” In the following weeks, Fozzie Bear claimed Gucci was “jealous” and dashed any hope of future business between the pair. Still, Big Guwop believes the Brick Squad bullies can work it out.
In a new interview with The FADER, Gucci explained that this is not the first time — “the sixth or seventh time,” actually — that he and Waka have been at odds, so he’s optimistic about a reconciliation. Regardless of whether the pair will eventually kiss and make up, though, Flocka will appear on the upcoming Brick Squad album, Guwop assured. After all, it’s “all about the money.”
You’ve said you’d like to work things out with Waka, and that you’ll release a Brick Squad album this summer. Will Waka appear on that album?
He’ll definitely be on the album, just because we’ve recorded so much material to date that we were planning to put on the Brick Squad album anyway. So no matter if we work things out or not, whether he drops his next album on 1017 Brick Squad or Brick Squad Monopoly or however the situation works out, he definitely will be on the Brick Squad album. Those songs are already recorded. And we’re gonna push forward and try to let him drop the next three albums that he’s contracted to drop on my label. Cause at the end of the day it’s still business. I pride myself on being a great businessman and I think he’ll honor what he committed to and we’ll push forward.
Do you think you and Waka will be friends in the future?
I hope so. This isn’t the first time that me and Waka been at odds with each other. We always work it out. This is like the sixth or seventh time. I don’t see no difference between this and the last one.
