Wiz Khalifa Shocked to Hear Name on Kanye West’s “Way Too Cold”
Earlier this month, Kanye West set hip-hop fans into a frenzy with his record “Theraflu,” later renamed “Way Too Cold.”
On the banger, Yeezy distinctly rhymes, “And the whole industry wanna fuck your old chick/Only nigga I got respect for is Wiz.” The lyrics are referring to his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, who is now the fiancé of rapper Wiz Khalifa. Just to hear ’Ye address them—as well as profess his love for Kim Kardashian—was certainly a shock to many listeners, one of them being Wiz himself.
During an interview with renowned DJ Funkmaster Flex on New York City’s Hot 97 radio dial Monday night (April 23), the Pittsburgh MC said he was very surprised to hear Kanye drop his name on the record.
“Shocked?” Flex asked him.
“Yes!” Wiz responded.
“Why was it so shocking to you?” Flex shot back.
“Because he said my name,” Wiz answered. “I’ve gone a long time without anybody actually saying my name out loud like that. It wasn’t a bad thing. It was just the fact that it was my name. That’s my name. it was wild, it was wild, but nothing negative. Everybody got positive from it, so it’s positive.”
The rapper, who counts “Black And Yellow” as his biggest hit, went on to reveal that never met West.
In addition, he divulged that he and Rose are working on setting an official date for their wedding.
But talking Kanye and Amber wasn’t Wiz’ objective appearing on Flex’s show. Khalifa dropped off “Work Hard Play Hard,” the lead single off his upcoming album, O.N.I.F.C., which is scheduled for an August 28 release. He and fellow MC Chevy Woods then blessed Flex with a freestyle over The Luniz classic, “I Got 5 On It.”—Jakinder Singh
