"Tupac introduced me to the (writing) of MAChiavelli. That's why I made that. I can't just, 'Oh, Tupac did that, so I'm gonna do that too.' If people read (MAChiavelli), they would love that man." Rapper WAKA FLOCKA FLAME insists he's not ripping off Tupac Shakur's Makaveli album by naming his debut disc Flockaveli, declaring the record's title a tribute to Italian philosopher Niccolò MAChiavelli.
