Via Pigeons and Planes:
Waka Flocka Flame is a friendly person. Walking through the Complex offices he laughs and high-fives employees, cracking jokes with spreadsheet-weary marketing executives and hip-hop writers alike, who are all happy to see him again. People remember Waka once they meet him. He’s made a name for himself not just based on a discography of eclectic, interesting rap but also through his extreme accessibility—there’s no superstar pretension here. Interviewing Waka doesn’t feel like an interview, it feels like having a conversation with someone who’s just as interested in you as you are in them.
