(AllHipHop News) Pittsburgh native Wiz Khalifa recently spoke with Esquire magazine about the biggest moment of his career, what Hip-Hop tracks he’s listening to right now, and the business advice he gain from associates of Donald Trump.
“Right now, I’m learning to sue people and get my money,” said Wiz. “After talking to people who work for Donald Trump — smart, successful people — I’ve realized I gotta go after all that. That’s what I’m going to do that I didn’t last year.”
Wiz has been involved in a couple of lawsuits in recent months. The “Work Hard, Play Hard” rapper was the one being sued in one case, and the plaintiff in another.
AllHipHop.com broke the story that songwriter Max Gregory Warren filed a lawsuit against Wiz claiming the rapper stole the his song “Pink N Yellow” and rehashed it as the #1 hit “Black & Yellow.” Warren asked for $2,375,000 in punitive and actual damages.
At the beginning of this month reports circulated that Wiz was suing a concert promotion company for $1 million. That case stemmed from a last-minute concert cancellation last December.

In the Esquire Music/Fashion spread, Wiz also reveals that his Taylor Gang comrade Juicy J’s strip club anthem “Bandz A Make Her Dance” is one of his favorite songs of the moment. He names Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” as another track getting regular play.
With the recent release of his second major label LP, O.N.I.F.C., Wiz returned to the more marijuana-inspired sound of his earlier mixtapes like Kush & Orange Juice and Burn After Rolling.
“I’m about partying, so my songs are usually just about smoking weed and having fun. When somebody isn’t having a great day, I like to be the guy that takes that load off your back,” said Wiz.

Wiz also showed love to fellow weed aficionado Snoop Dogg stating that being on stage with the west coast legend at Coachella 2012 was a highlight of his career.
“Not only did he bring me out that night, he brought out Dr. Dre and freakin’ hologram Tupac. To be in that sentence is pretty amazing,” says Wiz.
The Wiz Khalifa feature will appear in the May 2013 issue of Esquire available on newsstands on April 23.
