Pittsburgh’s hometown hero, Wiz Khalifa, was recently in NYC doing a round of publicity for his new single, “Work Hard, Play Hard” from his upcoming album, O.N.I.F.C. and found himself caught in a media firestorm regarding an alleged beef with rapper Wacka Flocka Flame.
“It was kind of hinted at that, I guess, he [Wacka Flocka] had felt like I came at him a certain way on a song,” said Wiz. “If that is the case, I feel like he should have came to me and asked me like, ‘Yo, was you talking about me in your song?’ and I would have cleared it up like, ‘Nah, man, it’s cool; I don’t have no problem with you.’ Instead of all of this stuff going on.”
Check out our interview with Wiz Khalifa below, where he talks about his “beef” with Wacka Flocka Flame, whether or not he and Amber Rose ever argue, and how he deals with the pressure of being famous.
O.N.I.F.C. is scheduled to drop in August and features guest spots from Chris Brown, Cam’ron, Pharrell, and his Taylor Gang crew.
