Rapper Wiz Khalifa recently dropped the most recent single from his upcoming “Blacc Hollywood” album, “We Dem Boyz“. While promoting the single, Wiz sat down with Billboard and discussed the album, the meaning behind the title, and details what it is like smoking with Miley Cyrus.
“The music is pretty much there for the album,” Wiz said, “it’s called Blacc Hollywood. It’s not all the way put together, but a good bit of it is finished.” Khalifa released the album’s first single, “We Dem Boyz,” in the second week of February through an exclusive Shazam premiered debut. In his interview with Billboard, the Pittsburgh emcee described his new track with a reference to his biggest hit to date. “I like ‘We Dem Boyz’ as the first single just ‘cause of the energy,” he said. “I feel like it reaches so many audiences other than just a Rap audience, sort of like how ‘Black and Yellow’ was—a big sports song, just get everybody riled up, like more of an anthem.” (Billboard)
“There is a Miley [Cyrus] song on the album,” he said. “It might not be what everybody expects from me and Miley ‘cause we do like club records and fun stuff. So, the one I have for the album is completely left of that, but it’s crazy, it’s insane.” The pair have worked together previously on tracks like Mike Will Made It’s 2013 single “23.” “It’s cool as heck kicking it with Miley,” Wiz said, “she’s real fun. We ride Can-Am’s through Hollywood and we just chill. Everybody knows she smokes pot now, so I can say we smoke a ton of pot and we just kick it. Oh, her Dad’s cool as heck too, Billy Ray, that’s the homie. Her brother is a friend of mine, her little sister is super dope, she doesn’t smoke pot yet, but yeah.” (Billboard)
