Wiz Khalifa Talks ‘Blacc Hollywood,’ Adele Collaboration

Wiz Khalifa

Taylor Gang was in the building when Wiz Khalifa stopped by AXS TV’s “Skee Live” on Tuesday. The Pittsburgh rapper opened up about his upcoming album Blacc Hollywood and revealed how his collaboration with Adele came together.

“The Hollywood part, of course, is like the success, the glitz, the glamour, the fun stuff,” said Wiz of the title. “And the Blacc is where we come from—not Pittsburgh the ‘hood, but Pittsburgh party, drinking at a very young age, tearing stuff up, staying up too late. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a lot of attitude.”

He just wants to let loose on the follow-up to 2012′s O.N.I.F.C. “It’s just gonna be a very fun project,” added Wiz. “I don’t have really any points to prove on this one except that I’m awesome. I’m really taking my time and picking the records out.”

Among his collaborators are Miley Cyrus and Adele, who he and wife Amber Rose met at the Grammys. “She ran up on Amber. She was like, ‘Amber! Amber!’ And told her how beautiful she looked,” he said of the British singer. “Her people contacted some of my people when they found out we were working on the album and sent some ideas through, so we were able to knock some things out.”

Now that he’s a father, his priorities have shifted. “I’ve gotten a lot more scheduled,” said Wiz, whose son Sebastian is nine months old. “I’ve been able to place things and accomplish them and knock them out a little bit better.”

    Man I love Wiz soo much, I hate weed but I just love his music it’s more then weed anthems now for him, I first discovered Wiz on “Black & Yellow” and thought to myself, this guy won’t last, but after that I ended up buying both
    “Rolling Papers” & “O.N.I.F.C”. and I loved then both, after I heard what the definition of “Work Hard, Play Hard” was, I felt Wiz may be here for a really long time. I will buy
    “Blacc Hollywood” for sure. #TGOD

    Btw, I feel there should be a Wiz Khalifa (Feat. Chris Brown) on this album, that’s never been done before, it was always the other way around, plus Wiz has been featured on FAME & Fortune, and now he has a spot on “X”. Also maybe a couple YMCMB members, he doesn’t need many, cuz his first 2 albums did good and made critical acclaim without them.
