Waka Flocka recently appeared with Akademiks on his Off The Record podcast where he opened up about some of the label woes he dealt with early on in his career.

He spoke specifically about the shady dealings that eventually led to the departure of Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, and French Montana from Mizzay Entertainment, the label headed by his mother Debra Antney. While it was known that Antney managed the aforementioned acts, Waka said he believes labels sabotaged his mother’s chance to actually sign those would-be towering figures.
