Wiz Khalifa Will Always Remember His Late Uncle’s Smile

In the midst of mourning his family’s loss, Wiz Khalifa caught up with MTV on Monday afternoon to celebrate Imani Porter’s life.

The rapper shared a heartwarming memory his family will always hold on to, telling MTV News: “I remember his smile. He had the biggest, biggest smile. He’s just a handsome, young man; he’s always going to be with us.”

The Pittsburgh native also used to platform to speak on his family’s behalf and to send a message to the black cloud that plagues his hometown, reminding the city’s civilians that violence isn’t always the answer.

“We’re doing well, actually. He was a lot younger than us, so it’s really unfortunate,” said Wiz. He then added, “Being from where I’m from, Pittsburgh, it’s an up-and-down type of place. Right now, it’s not really a good time, and unfortunately, it hit home, so we’re all sad.”

We wish Wiz Khalifa and his family our condolences in their time of need.
