On Memorial Day, Wiz Khalifa unearthed his latest musical offerings in the form of 28 Grams, a DJ Drama-hosted mixtape featuring 28 new tracks. Along with a heavy trap influence, Wiz also took to Twitter to reveal that Rihanna was the main inspiration for the well-received collection of music. The exact influence was unexplained as Wiz only sent a tweet that read, “Rhianna [sic] inspired this mixtape.” Rihanna responded to the stoner’s tweet by shooting out a tweet saying, “HE GETS IT!!! Too real, 1 love broski!!”

Since the release of his mixtape, Wiz has been snapping selfies in jail, performing at festivals, launching a new Tumblr page and getting ready for his Summer Jam performance.
