Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa is kicking ass and taking names. The Taylor Gang boss provides the soundtrack to the upcoming video game Mortal Kombat X. While two players fight to the finish in the graphic trailer, Wiz’ new song “Can’t Be Stopped” plays in the background.

“You try to be brave and step up, but your crew is too scary / Plus I’m too legendary,” he raps over the sound of crunching bones.

It’s unknown if the track will appear on his upcoming album Blacc Hollywood, due later this summer.

Last night, Wiz hit the stage at Hot 97 Summer Jam and brought out Snoop Dogg to perform “The Next Episode” and “Young, Wild, & Free.”

Rap-Up TV: Wiz Khalifa Talks ’28 Grams,’ Adele, & Miley Cyrus

Wiz Khalifa announced his new mixtape 28 Grams over the weekend. Before he hit the stage at PowerHouse 2014, the Taylor Gang boss filled Rap-Up TV in on a few more details. His Weedmix of ScHoolboy Q’s “Man of the Year” will be on the project along with other Weedmixes.

He didn’t reveal an exact release date, but hinted that it would drop sometime this month.

He has also chosen the next single off his album Blacc Hollywood. “I’m just trying to get the right feature on there,” said Wiz. “It’s gon’ be a really good look. It’s gon’ be a big look.”

The album is due this summer. “Blacc Hollywood in general is gon’ be sonically something that people kinda expect, but it’s like they want it, so it’s gonna be a good thing for me to deliver,” he explained.

He confirmed that Adele won’t be on the album. In fact, they didn’t even record together. “Nah, it was like an idea,” he said. “Maybe we’ll get to do a remix or something.”

However, Miley Cyrus will be on the album. “It’s amazing,” he said of their collaboration.

Wiz recently welcomed a new member into his family, a French bulldog named Vincent, who also appears on his 28 Grams cover art.

“Vincent’s a G, bro,” said Wiz, who said that his son Bash and new puppy “love each other.”

Wiz will hit the road with Jeezy, Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, and more on his “Under the Influence of Music Tour” this summer. So what can fans expect the third time around? He summed it up in one word: “Energy.”
