Atlanta's own Waka Flocka Flame recently spoke about the comparisons between himself and Gucci Mane to Jay-Z and Kanye West, as both groups have albums coming out. Waka Flocka says the pairings are uneven.
"Trying to compare us to Jay-Z [and Kanye] is like comparing [NBA player] Dirk Nowitzki to Larry Bird — that's disrespectful…That's like two different classes… I been rappin' for three years, those folks got 15 years — I'm happy that my name comes in the conversation — even behind Gucc. At the end of the day it's all respect; I'm a fan of music." (Rapfix)
