Can Hip-Hop love conquer all? Wiz Khalifa and fiance Amber Rose grace the cover of the October/November 2012 issue of XXL magazine. Already known for not flinching when it comes to the PDA, the Taylor Gang rapper has no problem professing his love for the soon to be Mrs. Khalifa.
“I love my baby. She’s gorgeous and it makes me look even cooler when I show how much I love her to other people… When I met Amber, she loved me for who I was. I had some money, but it was like to pay my bills and literally set myself up for a future. But I was wearing the same camo shorts and high-tops and Chucks. But she liked my swag and she liked me for who I was and I wasn’t afraid of that… She didn’t wanna date any entertainers or anybody in the business. She didn’t know who she wanted to be with, but she knew who she didn’t wanna be with.”
XXL’s editor-in-chief, Vanessa Satten, interviewed the couple while photographer Sarah McColgan took care of the images. Earlier this month, Wiz and Amber confirmed they were expecting a child while at the MTV VMAs.
Wiz Khalifa recently held down the cover of Complex (for self) and his new album, O.N.I.F.C. is now due in stores December 4th.
