Hip Hop DX caught up with Wiz Khalifa while he was at Philadelphia’s Wire 96.5FM radio station on a promo tour. DX asked Wiz if Lil Wayne’s recent ESPN interview (above) about remaking Khalifa’s ‘Black and Yellow’ was a subliminal response to the rapper’s supposed lyrical jabs in the past at Tyga.
Below is the response from Wiz and clearly, he doesn’t look too happy.
“Nah, not at all. I don’t think it had anything to do with that,” said Wiz confidently. However, the DXnext alum did note that Wayne missed an opportunity in the interview that aired days before the Super Bowl to acknowledge a peer “I’ve seen the interview, I think it’s just the case of what a lot of older dudes do now…this is just me being real by saying this, they try to act like they don’t know who I am, or try to act like I don’t know what I’m doing,” Wiz stated. “Because when [ESPN] did the interview with [Lil] Wayne, he was [saying] that he heard the song from the [Pittsburgh] Steelers – he heard it ’cause it was my song, but he didn’t say that. He had an opportunity to step up and say that, and he didn’t.”
