Wiz Khalifa on Cam’ron, Cigarettes, and ‘Laugh Now, Fly Later’

Wiz Khalifa's new project Laugh Now, Fly Later dropped earlier this month, and he came by for a new episode of Trending Topics to speak about his favorite rapper in the world (Cam'ron), why people should smoke weed instead of cigarettes, and his close relationship with Curren$y.

Having come up during the peak of the blog era, Wiz also took a moment to share his thoughts on the current relevance of blogs: “I just think blogs definitely still matter as much as they did before, I just think the content is different. People have come up so many other ways, like SoundCloud. And now if you, like, piss on your homeboy while he's sleeping, you'll get popular on Instagram.”

During his visit, Khalifa also had a chance to make good on his promise (eight years later) to reward every blog and DJ for their support of Burn After Rolling with white papers:

Wiz Khalifa Talks New Mixtape ‘Laugh Now, Fly Later’ and What It Means to Be an OG

Wiz Khalifa recently visited Complex, where he offered his thoughts on drug culture and the passing of Lil Peep. During that same sit-down with Complex News' Jinx, the Pittsburgh vet shared some details on his latest project, Laugh Now, Fly Later.

“I'm a fan of music; I listen to everything. So when you digest so much music, you have to find where you stand in the middle of all of that,” he explained. “That's what [Laugh Now, Fly Later] was, just finding where I stand in the middle of everything that's going on right now.”

Khalifa has been in the rap game for over a decade, so it's safe to say he's an OG. How does he feel about that? “I just embrace my position,” he said. “I know fully what my responsibility is, and I play my part.”

“Anybody who knows me behind-the-scenes, I just give away game,” he added. “I just want people to get the easy button on how to do it.”

Wiz Khalifa: ‘It’s Unfortunate That Lil Peep Had to Die’

Wiz Khalifa, who recently released his mixtape Laugh Now, Fly Later, stopped by the Complex office Thursday and talked about drug culture, particularly the use of lean, and also touched on Lil Peep's passing earlier today.

Earlier this month, the Pittsburgh rapper denounced lean, and doubled down in his conversation with Complex News' Jinx. “I just feel like somebody has to speak up for people who don't believe in that, or are really tired of seeing it,” he said. “It's unfortunate that Lil Peep had to die and stuff like that, but these are the things people are gonna start seeing and keep happening if they don't really relax and fall back.”

Wiz added: “I got a couple friends who do sip lean and shit, and I tell them all the time like, 'Yo, that shit is wack bro.'” Check out the full interview above.
