Wiz Khalifa says his Twitter feud with Kanye West was “weird” after the 39-year-old star mistakenly thought Wiz had dissed his spouse Kim Kardashian West.
The laid-back rapper became the target of Kanye’s wrath in January after the 39-year-old star mistakenly thought Wiz – who has three-year-old son Sebastian with ex-wife Amber Rose – had dissed his spouse Kim Kardashian West.
Wiz told NME: “I was like… oookaaay? The fact that that happened publicly – it was weird. But if I know I’m not going to argue with somebody, I’m not going to let a group of people make me argue with that person.”
During the row – which came at a time when Kanye planned to call his ‘Life of Pablo’ album ‘Waves’ – the ‘All Day’ rapper blasted: “You wouldn’t have a child if it wasn’t for me… You own waves???? I own your child!!!! (sic)”
And Kanye also slammed Amber – who he dated from 2008 to 2010 – as a “stripper” who had “trapped” Wiz by getting pregnant.
His tweets came after Wiz blasted the title ‘Waves’ and wrote: “Hit this kk and become yourself (sic)”
Kanye assumed “kk” referred to his wife, but the ‘Black and Yellow’ star insisted he was referring to a strain of marijuana.
Kanye later backed down and privately apologised to Wiz for his remarks.
Amber, 32 and 28-year-old Wiz recently celebrated their divorce by going to a strip club together and the rapper admitted he is always on the lookout for women to hook up with.
He said: “At a bar, a show, in the airport, on the plane, at the grocery store, pumping gas… You never seen someone who’s cute as hell pumping her gas, and you just jump on real quick and ask for the number? You’ve got to get out here with it, bro!
“More women are attracted to me because I’m a dad. Women look at me, like, ‘Wow, that’s how a good dude acts.’ I would much rather get that type of attention than from being an ass. It’s my goal to be a good father and balance everything.”
Meanwhile, Wiz is an enthusiastic marijuana user and admitted that he “stays medicated all day”.
He said: “I stay medicated. All day, every day, that’s the goal. Creatively I need to be at my most innocent and carefree,” he says. “Where I can be sensitive to my environment. I can accept colours and sounds and turn them into words. When I’m in situations like this, where there’s a lot going on, I still have to come up with a lot of ideas.”
