Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose On The Cover Of XXL’s October/November Issue

It’s a love thing between Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, hip-hop’s most publicly affectionate couple. And now they’ve got a baby on the way. The engaged and expecting item grace the cover of XXL’s October/November issue with a special interview by XXL editor-in-chief, Vanessa Satten, and revealing classic portraits by Sarah McColgan. In the story, Wiz and Amber speak openly on topics such as how they met, being a celebrity couple in hip-hop, their excitement about becoming parents and being in love, Wiz toning down his herbal habits around his pregnant fiancé, what family and friends think about their union and details on Wiz’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, O.N.I.F.C. [Only Nigga In First Class].

Here are a few quotes from the interview:

Wiz On Getting Together With Amber:

“I love my baby. She’s gorgeous and it makes me look even cooler when I show how much I love her to other people… When I met Amber, she loved me for who I was. I had some money, but it was like to pay my bills and literally set myself up for a future. But I was wearing the same camo shorts and high-tops and Chucks. But she liked my swag and she liked me for who I was and I wasn’t afraid of that… She didn’t wanna date any entertainers or anybody in the business. She didn’t know who she wanted to be with, but she knew who she didn’t wanna be with.”

Wiz On Recording His New Album With Amber At Home:

“I just gotta do it. The most important thing is knowing that she is there and I have to tend to my babies. This is my first child ever in life. I gotta go hard at everything. As hard as I go in the studio, I gotta go just as hard taking care of my baby and making sure she’s alright, and I’m spending time with her and she doesn’t feel neglected.”


Amber On Giving Birth:

“I’m so ready. I’m going all-natural. I’ve decided that I’m going to have an all-natural water birth. No medicine. I want those bragging rights! The next time Wiz has a stomachache or anything, I’ll say, ‘I popped out a baby all-natural.’”


Amber On Wiz:

“[H]e’s just a genuine sweet guy. And that’s what made me fall in love with him. And I just said, “You know what, I don’t care if he’s a rapper.” I don’t care if people say, “Oh, you’re a gold-digger.” I don’t care if people say, “Oh, you went from one rapper to another,” or whatever. I love him. I don’t look at him as a rapper. I look at him as Cameron Thomaz, not even Wiz Khalifa. I just fell so deeply in love with him, I didn’t care what anyone says.”



Also in the issue, XXL catches up with Meek Mill; Lecrae discusses the stigma of being a Christian rapper—that’s winning; Juicy J talks about reinventing himself; Big Sean offers info on his album in the works; Common celebrates the 20th anniversary of his debut album, “Can I Borrow A Dollar?” and Diamond Supply’s Nicki Diamonds shares a glimpse of what he needs to have on him at all times.

In addition, hip-hop mourns the loss of Violator Management founder, Chris Lighty; MMA fighter David Bautista talks hip-hop, Joell Ortiz interviews NBA head coach and fellow New Yorker, Mark Jackson, plus much more.

The October/November issue of XXL hits stands nationwide on October 9.—XXL Staff

    grow up stars have been doing these kind of photos for nearly a quarter of a century. it’s almost the same as doing a red carpet event while pregnant for example I remember seeing photos from an April 1996 fundraiser for the Hole In The Wall Gang Camps in NYC where the founders daughter who was 8 months pregnant at the time wore a blush colored satin dress and in one of those photos his hand is resting on her belly and feeling his soon to arrive grandson move. you could see the love sparkling in his eyes for his heavily pregnant daughter & unborn grandson. by all accounts Mr Newman was a doting grandfather and that beautiful boy and his younger brother have been a great comfort to their grandmother since pop-pop passed away four years ago

    i love these two soo much its actually quite sad lool. its nice to have a celebrity couple who actually show how much they really love each other to the public… and by them doing so their actually gaining more fans. my favorite couple by farrr! i use to love beyonce nd jayz but their just to secretive , they have soo much fans but yet don’t want no 1 to no their business? whats the point of having fans then… and all these negative comments ppl keep leaving is just pathetic because i no every one would die to have what these two have
