Wiz Khalifa is featured on the cover of The Source's "Power 30" issue.
Wiz Khalifa has had a pretty big year, releasing first his monstrous 28 Grams mixtape, followed by his long-awaited studio album, Blacc Hollywood. He's also in the middle of a hectic tour schedule, but somewhere along the way he was able to sit down with The Source for a cover story.
The perpetually stoned rapper appears on the front of the iconic magazine in what looks to be a colorfully summery shoot, making this the second cover for the mag's 2014 Power 30 issue, for which the alternative version features Jeezy (who happens to be on tour with Khalifa).
The mag also released a couple of quotes from the interview ahead of time. Check out a portion of the interview below.
On what it’s like going to a Wiz Khalifa show:
Yea I feel like it’s spiritual for anybody to come to my show or any event in general, I want my experience to be for people to come and just release and have a great time, more of a great time than they expected to have. The people that are around the music that you hear, the smell..that everything is real specific. I like to keep those things around and in order and make sure that they’re all right and everyone gets the experience that they’re supposed to have. Not just the music, but the lifestyle and yeah.
On Cam’ron, Eminem’s The Source cover:
My favorite rapper of all time is Cam’ron. And one of my favorite Source covers is the one with Eminem, where I think he had a chainsaw or something in his hands, but I remember being able to see a tattoo on his arm, that was really, really detailed well. And that was maybe in ’99 or 2000.
