Wiz Khalifa Talks Rolling Papers & Currensy (Video)

Posted By on March 29, 2011

     With his new "Rolling Papers" album hitting stores today, Wiz Khalifa sat down to speak about everything from his friend Currensy going to his former label along details on his debut album. The Puttsburgh rapper first spoke about his friend Currensy signing with his former record company Warner Brothers.

"When I heard about [Curren$y signing to Warner Brothers Records], I told him congratulations. I know they've got new people over [at Warner]. That's one thing. And I rock with Curren$y; that's my people, regardless of what situation he's in or what he's doin'. I always want to see him do good. And I know, him as a person, he's not gonna set himself up for failure. So I just trust him with that." Although Wiz and Warner were never able to achieve much success together outside of hit single "Say Yeah" , that has little to do with Curren$y. "Even if it was a bad situation, he'd still be my man." (Hiphopdx)

     Wiz Khalifa went on to speak about the lyrical move in "Rolling Papers" and while his "Roll Up" single might be more pop than his fans may like.

"I got a lot of different stuff when I go deep and say different things, but a lot of my growth and development as an artist has been taking things that are really complex and make them seem simple. So the way that I say things on [Rolling Papers] might come across as really easy to listen to, but if you dig deep or go back, I want people to find [my lyricism too]."(Hiphopdx)
