Waka & Tammy Talk Gucci Boycott & Supporting Black Businesses

In this exclusive Q&A with EBONY, the rapper discusses why it’s important for all of us to support Black businesses.

Waka Flocka was one of the first artists to publicly boycott Gucci following the release of their controversial blackface sweater. In this exclusive Q&A with EBONY, the rapper discusses why it’s important for all of us to support Black businesses and set an example for young people who may not understand what their purchasing power truly means.

“Nobody can blame kids for wearing it. I snap because I see a guy like Mayweather wearing it. We know, bro! We grown men! Now, to see a younger kid like a Young Thug have it on, that’s different, he younger! It takes somebody like me to call him … nine times out of 10 when I call them and tell them, they say, ‘woah, big homie, for real?’”
