Wiz Khalifa Responds To Album Cover Backlash

 

Wiz Khalifa turned the social media world on its ear when he unleashed the cover art for his allbum O.N.I.F.C. Some rappers praised the direction he took it while others, well, others clowned him. Young Khalifa took to his twitter page recently to respond to those people who felt some type of way about the imagery that he used. “Im helping everyone get in touch with their inner sleaze,” Wiz tweeted. “If [you] don’t want to let it out, I’ll express it for you. I’ll be brave enough. ONIFC ts not for the scary.

“[It's] about taking risks so the people who believe what we believe in can feel free. The cover art should give you confidence and let you know you can fully be yourself in front of people no matter what they say or think. You don’t have to hide that s**t, let it out. That’s what the artwork really represents, and if you scared i’ll do it for you.”

Khalifa’s album, O.N.I.F.C. hits stores on September 18th.

LOL!!! anyone that originally listened to him for the RIGHT REASONS would have seen this coming, he is not 2008 wiz anymore in fact he been got off of that style of dress and content of rap. His style evolved, if you want hood stuff listen to hood rappers…that stuff is played out…if you dont like where things are going in general just fall back and get old, its easy….for some smh
