Wiz Khalifa speaks on his high expectations for the second installment of the "Under The Influence" tour.
Wiz Khalifa is getting ready to head out his second "Under The Influence" tour, and he's confident that this year's event will top the very successful first installment with Mac Miller. This year Wiz will co-headline the tour with A$AP Rocky, as well as being joined by the likes of Joey Bada$$, Trinidad Jame$, Smoke DZA and more. Wiz spoke to HHDX about his excitment for the tour, indicating that having A$AP on the lineup will bring things to the next level.
“I think everything naturally gets better with time. The second year of ‘Under The Influence,’ the first one was amazing. Was a lot of plans. Everybody had fun. It sold out pretty much like the whole thing,” Khalifa explained. “So, I think naturally people are going to be more excited with the new acts that are on…With the amount of good music that’s gonna be really brought to the table. And I feel like with A$AP having as much success with his album, being number one, it brings like some super stardom to it too.”
Not only will the tour be beefing up in terms of performers, it will also visit almost twice as many cities this time around. “There is new cities because we only did 11 dates last year so, obviously we’re gonna be gone for longer than that,” said the Taylor Gang rapper. “It’s expanding and that’s a good thing because that means that people love him and they love us. And that they want to see us more so, it’s no telling what it could do.”
