If you thought Wiz Khalifa looked pimptastic in his O.N.I.F.C. cover art, you might be surprised to find out where the “Work Hard, Play Hard” MC gets all that major swag from. “I love my dad, yo. That’s my man,” Wiz told Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately. “He’s a little bit darker than me, so when people see him they don’t really know he’s my dad. And then they see him start moving, and they be like, oh, that’s where Wiz gets his swag from.”
The Pittsburgh rapper (whose real name is Cameron Thomaz) went on to explain that he grew up spending time living back and forth with his mom and his dad. “My dad really was the first one who really opened up the studio for me and let me do my music thing. He was like, yo, if this is what you wanna do, do it.” Watch Wiz talk about his pop, and explain his upcoming album’s title, above.
