Wiz Khalifa Advises His Former 2005 Self on Fashion and Flow


Before he was catapulted into success and heard on every radio station from Urban to Pop with his hit song, “Black and Yellow”, Wiz Khalifa was just a a young kid growing up in Pittsburgh with dreams of making it big. Now, with a headlining name, his Taylor Gang crew, and a place as one of Forbes Magazine’s Hip-Hop Cash Kings with $11 million earned last year, Wiz is living his dream.

AllHipHop.com’s Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur recently sat down with Wiz Khalifa and time traveled back to the year 2005, when Wiz was only 18 years old and had just released his first mixtape,  Prince of the City – Welcome to Pistolvania.

“I was real lyrical back then, man, because I was finding my lane, and there were a alot of lyrical cats out there already who were covering that and doing that way more than I felt like doing that,” said Wiz Khalifa.

Taking a moment to critique his fashion statement on the cover, Wiz feels he embodied a winner on the mixtape cover:

“I look like the young champion of my city. I look like I really, really might run that town. With that 5X State Property hoodie on from Burlington, and that 6X tall tee from Foot Locker, and my Pittsburgh hat. That’s a hard cover, man.”

Check out the video below as Wiz Khalifa reminisces about his earlier days as a young spitter, gives advice to his younger self, and breaks down his look on the cover of his first mixtape, Prince of the City – Welcome to Pistolvania.

    Take the lighter route at OUR expense and time. Who wants to sit up and listen to this dude play around and get paid for it. He basically said “I do bullshit songs and get high and people pay me for it.”

    • Cause he could do that…would you not? lol

      • timwest1000

        99% of hip hop artist would not. THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE WHEN THE MONEY RUNS OUT< AND IT WILL!!!! Besides, with a name like hood nerd, I have no more to say about ANYTHING to you. It is obvious that your type of thinking is the reason hip hop is falling off.

  • Wiz reninds me of Nicki, They both have high lyrical “abilities”, however choose to use music as a stepping stone for other ish…Really smart business minded individuals…He has his peace movement, she has her barbie movement… You want lyrical content buy a Lupe album..Their tryna get paid and youd be a hater for blaming them….

      Lupe is a bum as well. Stop cooning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    •  Barbie isn’t a movement. It’s a plastic, most recognizable when caucasian doll that little girls play with…Peace isn’t a movement It’s a choice when you struggle to even manhandle 5lb dumbbells, much less able to handle a physical confrontation with the likes of Waka Flocka….

  • I wanna rhyme like Common Sense, I did 5 mill so that wouldnt be common sense

    Literally anything fora buck. Even make himself look like a lackluster sucker who does not deserve any credit IN THE FUTURE! Think and put the weed down.
