Wiz Khalifa Surprised by Kanye West Shout-out on 'Way Too Cold'
Kim Kardashian’s ex Kris Humphries wasn’t the only one taken aback by Kanye West’s track “Way Too Cold.” Wiz Khalifa admits to being “very” surprised after Yeezy shouted him out.
“I’ve gone a long time without anybody ever saying my name out loud like that,” the Pittsburgh MC told Funkmaster Flex while promoting his new single “Work Hard Play Hard.” “It wasn’t a bad thing, it was just the fact that it was my name. It was wild, but it wasn’t nothing negative. Everybody got positive from it.”
The G.O.O.D. Music CEO rips into Humphries, but had nicer things to say about Wiz. “And the whole industry want to f**k your old chick/ Only ni**a I got respect for is Wiz,” raps ‘Ye on the song, which was previously titled “Theraflu.”
While they have yet to meet, the two both dated Amber Rose. Wiz and his fiancée have plans to walk down the aisle, but a date has not been set. “She’s making the plans,” shared Wiz.
The night before his trip to New York, Wiz joined Snoop Dogg onstage at Coachella to perform “Young, Wild & Free,” and expressed his thoughts on the Tupac Shakur hologram. “It was dope,” he said. “Everybody knows that you’re not gonna get the real Tupac. Just to have the vibe and the swag ’cause people do video tributes all the time, so this one being 3-D, it just stepped the game up a little bit.”
But he’s seen enough holograms for a while. “I be sleeping with the TV on ’cause Pac’s alive,” he joked.
