On the special 4/20 episode of the Drink Champs podcast, N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN had none other than Wiz Khalifa join the table. Throughout the interview, they discussed the Pittsburgh icon's vast connections, career moves, classic hits, and perspective in life. However, one very important and heartening topic of conversation was his co-parenting with ex Amber Rose. While that situation can be tough for many to navigate, Wiz expressed how important and fulfilling it is to make sure their son Sebastian, born in 2013, has a healthy and happy relationship with his parents.

"We're like the ideal couple, even though we're not together," "We share the most beautiful thing in life, we have a kid. We got great memories, we were married. So everything we did was out of pure love, you know what I'm saying? We planned on being with each other forever. But, you know, that s**t gets difficult. And I think with marriage, with legal marriage, it kind of sucks because that has to be the end of something when that's over. But I think we're proving that it's not the end of everything, even when that legal s**t is over.

"I got her back, she knows it, she got my back, I know it," Wiz continued. "We do a great job, you know, being there for our kid. We do so many things for Sebastian- not even just for him, but we're such a good unit for him that I didn't see growing up. My parents, they weren't able to function, her parents as well. I think just that generation of dysfunction, there was no come-together. There was no holidays, there was no birthdays together. It was just real dysfunctional. That's what we grew up seeing, and we do things together.

"He gets to enjoy both of us together," the rapper concluded. "He doesn't see us separately. That's really important. My parents were divorced since I was 2, and I had both of them in my life. Love my mother, love my dad, but they can't be in the same room together, and that's not good for a kid. And it's not their fault because they probably didn't grow up seeing the best functioning anything. But we gotta break that and we gotta be better for our f***ing kids."
