Wiz Khalifa made a name for himself since he got into mainstream music. What we haven’t seen much from Wiz is him confronting and throwing verbal jabs at people out of anger. Now, a new video doesn’t paint him in the best light.
A video clip is making the rounds showing the See You Again rapper ranting at DJ Mike Danger and MC Tron. In the video clip, Khalifa screams at them in front of the audience. Wiz apparently got furious because they weren’t playing any selections from his latest album, Multiverse.
“Bitch ass n-gga, if you wanna fight, n-gga we can do it. Y’all n-ggs suck, don’t hug me bitch. Y’all n-ggas suck. Play my new shit n-gga, play it n-gga, play ‘Bad Ass Bitches.’ Y’all are horrible DJs.”
This behavior from Wiz garnered a lot of hate from the DJ community, slamming him for his inappropriate behavior. DJ Rob Swift of the X-Ecutioners took to Instagram and called out the weed-friendly rapper for his false sense of entitlement. He was not going to let Wiz run away with this incident and made a huge post condoning this act.
“The arrogance from @wizkhalifa towards the house DJs in this video encapsulates the puffed-up sense of importance from a lot of you rappers. I don’t know what it is about holding a microphone to your mouth that gives rappers like @wizkhalifa a sense of grandiosity but let me be the first one to say, I’ve sat behind the scenes with many of y’all and I see right through the act. Most of y’all are insecure, can’t fight and none of y’all are killers, that’s for sure!”
Longtime DJ veterans like DJ Platurn and DJ Swift eventually came across the tweet and shared their concerns. Platurn called the rapper incompetent and a “sh*ttier” person for making such a scene. Swift came in on the fact that Wiz has a false sense of being superior, and this reflects in his recent behavior.
Wiz has often made wise comments about Hip-Hop and the future of the genre, however this time he managed to put people off with his stern choice of words. What could’ve been a fun night for everyone turned pretty gloomy for the people at the club. Hopefully, this incident hasn’t made a dent in the promotional events for Wiz’s latest album.
