Wiz smokes kush, and Wiz makes music. Prodigiously. These acts alone wouldn’t set him apart in a crowd of rappers with a penchant for cannabis, but for the fact that he does both with singular style—a style best described as seeming like he genuinely does not give a fuck. His nonchalant charisma has earned him droves of fawning admirers and mainstream success as an international rap idol, so how can he possibly keep a level head amidst the pitfalls and temptations of fame and fortune? One can only wonder…
Office – What is your relationship with ass?
Wiz Khalifa – I don’t really look as much at the ass as I look at like the whole figure, you know?” Does that make sense? Because you could have like a nice small booty with a good rest of the body, or a bigger one works with the rest of the body too. It’s just all how it’s proportioned.
O – Not to offend you, but your wife has a pretty big ass, I think it is fantastic. I wish my wife looked like that! [Laughs]
WK – [Laughs] I think it’s pretty nice too.
O – Of course you do! So, what do you fear?
WK – I don’t really feel threatened, I don’t fear anything when it comes to safety. My biggest worry is just letting the people down that I really, really care about and that I know matter to me. That’s pretty much why I work really hard and just try to stay, you know, a respectable, cool guy because I know those people are depending on everything.
O – I understand. What about like… I mean, I guess we all have some sort of fear…
WK – Well I guess you don’t want to be buried alive or anything like that.
O – No, of course not. Me, for instance, I am really scared of spiders.
WK – Ahh, I hate spiders! Yeah, I take my clothes off and run.
O – [Laughs] Yeah, me too.
WK – You too?
O – I don’t take my clothes off, but I scream and I try to run away, or like, hide somewhere. It’s just really gets to me, you know what I mean?
WK – Yeah, it gives you the creepy crawlies, right?
O – Exactly. What is the worst food you’ve ever tasted?
WK – Probably some fish eggs when I was in Japan. It was just— I didn’t like the texture. It made me want to really, really barf.
O – What’s your favorite food then?
WK – My favorite food is probably turkey burgers. Like, I fuck with beef, steak and shit like that, but I eat a little different. You know, I just feel like turkey burgers have a little bit more taste. You should fuck with it.
O – You have like no fat on your body. What is your secret?
WK – [Laughs] You know what? I’m just blessed. I don’t gain any weight at all. I haven’t gained any weight since high school, not even a pound.
