Wiz Khalifa has been a highly talked about member of the rap game for quite some time, whether it be for his music or his personal relationship issues. The Taylor Gang front man recently chopped it up with MTV to take a little walk down memory lane to reminisce about his past summer tours, “See You Again” vs. “Black & Yellow,” collabing with PARTYNEXTDOOR and putting Kendrick and Mac Miller on.
“Every last one of my summer tours: ten, ten, ten, ten, ten,” Wiz said. “Mac Miller was awesome. A lot of people don’t remember that I took Kendrick [Lamar] on tour with me. Give me some credit for that,” Wiz says about giving Mac and Kendrick some shine in the industry.
When talking about taking over the Billboard charts not once but twice with “See You Again,” which was on the Furious 7 soundtrack, and his first real hit “Black & Yellow,” he explains how he transitioned throughout the years. “When I did ‘Black & Yellow’ I was kind of unknown, chilling, on the rise and then boom, a number one record. Then I had all these opportunities in front of me,” he said, before comparing it to his recent number-one hit “See You Again.” “Then a lot of time went on. It wasn’t like I just came out with another number one right away…now I have a lot of other opportunities.”
