Commenting on the comparison, Waka Flocka Flame says it's 'disrespectful' because 'Ferrari Boyz' and 'Watch the Throne' are like two different classes.
Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane have released a joint album in the same week fellow rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z dropped theirs. Despite the coincidence, Gucci and Waka refused to be compared to the "Watch the Throne" duo.
Waka gave his own analogy to explain why he and Gucci should not be compared to the mega rap duo. "Trying to compare us to Jay-Z [and Kanye] is like comparing Dirk Nowitzki to Larry Bird - that's disrespectful," he told MTV. "That's like two different classes."
Waka and Gucci released "Ferrari Boyz" in the United States on August 9. "The production on this is A class," Waka gushed. "We got some young producers that went hard on this album." Naming one of them, he revealed, "Southside, he's goin' hard. You know how it is; we want that new sound. Matter of fact, Southside is on Jay-Z and Kanye album."
