It’s no secret that Waka Flocka Flame is one of Atlanta’s hottest MCs right now. It’s also no secret that, following a performance at the BET Hip-Hop Awards taping this past Saturday, Waka cursed Stephen Hill, the channel’s executive vice president of entertainment and music programming, during a heated Twitter exchange.
“I THA[N]K BET AS A WHOLE,” Waka Flocka wrote. “99% SHOULD I SAY… ITS JUST THAT 1% IS A DUCK ASS N—A.”
On Monday (October 4), Waka stopped by to talk about the incident with MTV News.
“I wasn’t even upset, honestly,” the rapper said about his early departure from the taping. “My label had some stuff set up for me to leave and do some stuff for my album. So I guess by me leaving, everybody was like, ‘Oh, he mad.’ But I just dipped. I ain’t know what was going on.”
The taping was reportedly smooth sailing, except for a small snafu with Waka Flocka Flame’s performance. The incident led to a war of words on Twitter between the rapper and Hill. Things initially heated up when Hill took to his Twitter account to voice his displeasure over Waka’s botched performance.
“The show was going so well… and then Waka Flak-ed,” he wrote. “Waka. Flacka. Flamed. Out.”
