Wiz Khalifa Talks Pharrell
For many Wiz Khalifa fans, the MC’s major label debut “Rolling Papers” felt like new territory. While fans were excited to hear new music, the musical transition from the “Black & Yellow” MC’s 2010 “Kush And OJ” mixtape to his major label debut “Rolling Papers” felt drastic. The Pittsburgh, PA MC admitted to shifting from his creative direction on the record but for a reason. Pharrell Williams is also joining the list of producers working with the A-list MC, however Wiz doesn’t want the collaboration to be in name only.
“Anybody that I get with, I want to make my own connection with them. I’m going to be working with a lot of different people on the new album,” he said. “I’m working with Pharrell, but Pharrell is known for what he’s known for. But when he gets with me, I want it to be a unique sound where it’s like, ‘That’s that Pharrell and Wiz shit.’ ”
