Complex just put together their list of the 25 Best Rappers under the age of 25. The Taylor Gang CEO came in at #5. Here's what they had to say:
With all the WTF moments he's had with Amber Rose lately, some folks may have forgotten that Wiz Khalifa is the same man who put Pittsburgh rap on the map. Remember when you couldn't go a day without hearing that "Black and Yellow"? And what about when Kush & Orange Juice was your daily breakfast of champions?
Wiz Khalifa and his father, military man, Laurence Thomaz, have a very close relationship – one that Wiz credits with allowing him to grow as an individual and become the success that he is today. Wiz recently got engaged to his girlfriend, Amber Rose. AllHipHop got Wiz thinking about what type of father he wants to be when he gets to that point. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
While walking the red carpet at the Mac And Devin Go To High School movie premiere, Wiz fielded some questions from Bossip (above) and Hip Hop Hollywood (below.) He spoke with Bossip about his character in the movie, and tapping back to his days in high school to prep for the part. He also talked about what's easier...rapping or acting, and his upcoming album O.N.I.F.C.. In another interview with Hip Hop Hollywood, Wiz discusses getting better as an actor, and his mom tells us what he was like in high school!
In a joint interview with HipHopDX, Wiz and Snoop both answered questions about their developing friendship. Wiz spoke specifically on what he was like in school, his relationship with Snoop, the most important thing he's learned from Snoop and the most difficult thing to overcome during his rise to stardom. Snoop also chopped it up about the influence he has on younger MC's, his biggest similarity to Wiz, working with kids and more! Head over to HipHopDX.com to read the full interview!
