Wiz Khalifa recently sat down with Larry King for a candid conversation on the legendary television host’s web series, Larry King Now. During the interview, Taylor Gang’s front man discussed his forthcoming marriage to Amber Rose, his anxiousness to begin fatherhood, his well documented love for weed, his forthcoming album, O.N.I.F.C., and more.
The interview felt more like a conversation between friends, and began with Wiz, who’s government name is Cameron Thomaz, telling a condensed version of his life story. The 25-year old rapper described his humble beginnings as an Air Force brat, which gave him a worldly point of view that became his unlikely advantage when he decided to pursue music professionally.
From there, King delved into a serious line of questioning, beginning with Wiz’s dependency on marijuana. The Pittsburgh MC immediately defended his vice, saying “It makes me feel like I can get everything done in the right order… If I think I’m doing better, then it’s working on my brain. It actually makes other people think I’m doing good too.”
Wiz Khalifa couldn’t contain his excitement when King brought up fatherhood. “I can’t wait. To have a little me running around, it’s gonna be tight,” said Wiz, who immediately paid homage to his pops for showing him how to be an exception parent. Clap for that.
King respectfully asked Wiz if his marijuana habit would affect his son, which the rapper also defended. “Nah, I don’t think it will affect my son at all. Um, I think it’s just how your raised to think about marijuana and it’s going to be legal pretty soon anyway.
