Waka Flocka Flame’s “disgust” over the actions displayed in Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s (SAE) viral clip has prompted the rapper to cancel his April concert at the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Waka responding to SAE’s offensive behavior earlier this week via an Instagram post, he appeared in an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Tuesday to share more of his thoughts. “My initial reaction when I seen the video, I was more like hurt. More like disgusted, because I knew those kids, I performed for those kids,” the Atlanta rapper said in reference to a 2014 concert at the university. “They made me feel like a brother. Just to see what a person does behind closed doors was more disgusting than hurting. I wasn’t angry, I was just disgusted.” Check out the full interview between Waka Flocka Flame and CNN after the jump.

CNN recently crowned Nas the greatest lyricist of all time. Who knows why CNN decided to throw their hat in that ring? Maybe Anderson Cooper is dating a fan of Nas. Maybe Ted Turner misses having Nas as a tennis buddy in Atlanta and is hoping that flattery will be as persuasive as Kelis’ milkshake to get him back. The most likely reason is that Nas’ lyrics just sound more like the news than anyone else's. If you enjoy listening to a sociology class lecture, and equally enjoy weaker beat selections, then Nas is the rapper for you.
