Waka Flaka Throws Shade at DJs and Producers Releasing Full Length Albums

"Is it me or - goddamn - when a DJ or a producer get famous, they wanna drop an album," Flocka said, frustrated. “N---a, you’re not a rapper. You’re not an artist. Stick to your fucking profession, man. Fuck!”

Waka Flocka Flame had a few not-so-kind but somewhat true words for up-and-coming DJs or producers. The well-established rapper indirectly called out producers and DJs during a recent live stream. Artists like Skrillex, Diplo, and Calvin Harris are the DJs and producers that Waka Flocka was referring to. The rapper is a bit hypocritical, however, as he's collaborated with a plethora of DJs and producers alike, including Steve Aoki. The Gerogia-raised rapper has also released his own "EDM rap" album, Turn Up God.

Hear what Waka Flocka Flame has to say about these DJs and producers.

What do you think? Is this unfair? DJs are producers have been releasing albums for decades, long before Diplo or Calvin Harris. What's with all the heat?!
