Wiz Khalifa Says He Wants To Shake His Stoner Stigma

RickyRichRickyRich Posts: 13,055 ✭✭✭✭✭
Wiz Khalifa says he's happy for Mac Miller's recent signing to Warner Bros., says he wants to be referred to as more than just a "stoner" rapper.

Wiz Khalifa has long been known for his affiliation with marijuana and many consider him of the "stoner rap" variety when it comes to Hip Hop.

Recently sitting down with HardKnockTV, the Pittsburgh native says he wants to not be solely labeled a 'weed head' rapper and believes that once he expands his endeavors beyond music, the label will start to peel off.

"I was just talking with one of my homies yesterday, I kind of want to break the stigma of everything I do is like a 'stoner this' or a 'weed head' that, which is cool, that's what I built my marketing and my brand but at the end of the day everyone who is successful in film or in music get's high and they don't look at them as the stoner," Wiz says when asked about what else he would like to accomplish. "Once I get past that point I think I'll make more movies so to people id doesn't look forced or look like I'm trying to change lanes or change gears. It'll just be people ready for me to do that anyway."

Wiz Khalifa was also asked about his hometown homie Mac Miller and his recent signing to Warner Bros. Records.

"Being from Pittsburgh, we're bigger than a label or a situation," Wiz says. "We started doing music exactly the same way so we going to get to where we want to be in life regardless."

    Yup. He just needs to make better music. You see how much love Snoop Dogg gets, and he's one of the most famous potheads along with Bob Marley.

    He needs to stop getting arrested for having possession of weed 1st. Amber lawyers are going say he's an unfit parent because he smokes weed all the time and have threesomes with twin strippers everyday.

    Atlantic pretty much introduced him to the masses that way. They painted him in a image to be the new Snoop Dogg. Sounds like a subliminal that things arent going well with the label.

    Too late, but good luck w/ that Wiz.
    The person who controls your anger controls you.

    The conventional mind is passive. It consumes information and
    regurgitates it in familiar forms. The dimensional mind is active
    transforming everything it digests into something new & original,
    creating instead of consuming.

    Excuses don't solve problems.

    Life is a series of serious choices
    Theories are formed from experience, never mysterious forces
