Wiz Khalifa Has Love for Kanye West Following “Yikes” Song Lyrics
As Pusha-T's beef with Drake enters an apparent intermission, TMZ caught up with Wiz Khalifa to find out whether the "Roll Up" rapper might be interested in sparking up conflict with his past foe Kanye West. Probably for the better, Wiz declined, claiming to harbor no hard feelings toward the rapper and producer who once told him, "I own your child!!!!"
The interview went down Monday night (June 5) outside a bar in West Hollywood. Asked whether he'd consider passing Kanye the "peace pipe," Wiz responded, "I love that. I love that." TMZ pressed, asking whether Wiz believes his personal marijuana strain Khalifa Kush could help West's mental health. Khalifa didn't take the bait and responded, "He got it all covered." Finally, the reporter asked specifically whether the beef was squashed, and Wiz said, "It's all love, champ."
The comment potentially resolves a beef that dates back to 2011, around when Khalifa started dating West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose. Yeezy threw multiple subliminals after the couple went public, but things erupted in 2016 after Wiz criticized Kanye for changing the title of his album (what would become Life of Pablo) to "Waves." In an extended series of soon-deleted tweets, Kanye accused Wiz of ripping off Kid Cudi, getting "trapped" by a "stripper," and having a corny first single. He also tweeted, "You wouldn't have a child if it wasn't for me. You own waves???? I own your child!!!!!"
In response, Wiz led crowds in anti-Kanye chants at several concerts, and Rose accused West of missing her fingers. Kanye ultimately settled things down by tweeting, "God’s dream… Never speak on kids again… all love … all blessings…." It seems Wiz remembers.
In other words, don't expect a Yeezy diss on Wiz's tour with Rae Sremmurd, or on his and Gucci Mane's forthcoming joint mixtape. Meanwhile, Kanye is expected to release a joint album with Kid Cudi on Friday.
