Wiz Khalifa’s Bail For Last Arrest Was $3 Million
Fresh outta bed in an ill BAPE robe, Wiz dropped by Power 105's The Breakfast Club for a sitdown. During the interview, Khalifa touched a range of topics from his arrest record to Rihanna and everything in between. Below are the highlights:
On weed smoking: "I go all the way with it. I talk about it enough, I stand up for it enough, I might as well show people what I'm about instead of doing it 90%."
On arrest in North Carolina and bail money: "Last time in North Carolina [bail] was $3 million...I been a boss, I paid the cost. I got locked up with 10 people and all of our bail was 300,000 dollars."
On the success of "We Dem Boyz" and the remix: "I know everything it's just a matter of people going with my vision... I'm finishing up with the remix tonight with Nas...I met him at Soundset, that's the homie. I freaking love Nas' music...We changed the beat, it's gonna be dope. It's Nas and someone else but I can't say who it is yet."
On his influence: "That's why I say I know what I'm doing. I've made styles...I kind of relaxed and let them go so when I go back and use auto-tune or go sing a whole sing, them niggas got that from me anyways...Everybody heard Star Power, everybody heard Flight School, everybody heard Prince Of The City 2, you niggas know what it is! Don't let Twitter fans confuse you with 'Oh, Wiz is this, Wiz is that.' Go back and do your homework and listen."
On Rihanna's influence on 28 Grams: "I was playing her some records from my album that I was trying to get her on and she said, 'Man, this is cool but this is the Wiz I like. When I think about Wiz, this is what I hear...' And if that's what she wants, that's what a lot of people will want."
Wiz is gearing up for this summer's "Under The Influence Tour" and hinted on his album dropping "August-ish." Peep the full interview below:
