“Scoundrel” Wiz Khalifa Pisses Off The Mayor Of Medellin With Pablo Escobar Tribute

(AllHipHop News) Pittsburgh rap star Wiz Khalifa has drawn the wrath of Colombians, after a trip to the country turned into a bunch of bad publicity.

On Friday (March 25), Wiz was over in Medellin Columbia for a concert in the city, when he decided to visit the grave of the deceased drug lord, Pablo Escobar.

But Wiz’ attempt to pay recognition to the slain Medellin drug cartel boss backfired, resulting in the Mayor the city attacking the rapper in the press, who also demand an apology from Wiz.

Mayor Federico Gutierrez labeled the rap star a fraud and a “scoundrel” for laying flowers and a marijuana joint at Escobar’s headstone.

“It shows that this guy has never had to suffer from the violence inflicted by these drug traffickers,” Mayor Gutierrez told the local press.

Authorities estimate that Pablo Escobar murdered over 4000 people, including numerous politicians and lawmakers, during his war against the government, to keep his cartel in the 1980s and 1990s.

Pablo Escobar was famously killed during a shootout on a rooftop in December of 1993 with the Colombian national police.
