Apparently, there is some sort of beef going on between rising star Wiz Khalifa, and Cali-based newcomers Odd Future (OFWGKTA).
During the 2011 mtvU Woodies, members of the group kept shouting out “F*** Rolling Papers,” which is the title of Wiz’s upcoming debut album.
Both were in attendance at the ceremony and both acts performed. However, we were unsure about how the beef started. But after some investigation, we found out that OFWGKTA dropped a mixtape, also using the title Rolling Papers, back in August 2010, a full five months before the Pittsburgh rapper announced his album’s title and March release date.
So, where does it go from here? Wiz isn’t into beefing, and during a recent sitdown with KarmaloopTV, he addressed the issue with the L.A. rap collective, brushing it off with his usual, laid back attitude.
“That was them? Oh, ok. Did they like … diss me, or were they pissed?” Wiz asked the interviewer about the rumored Woodies diss. “I didn’t even see it, honestly. I’m glad I didn’t though.
“I figured that was gonna happen,” he continued. “Who doesn’t have a title that another person has? But umm, I support those dudes. I’m just now getting up on them dudes. I like their angle. The whole controversy thing, it’s cool. It takes balls to take that lane. Whatever they gone do … I don’t want them to feel like I jacked the name from them or nothing like that. Everybody know I smoke papers and sh**. I support them dudes heavily man.”
There you have it. Doesn’t sound like you’ll be hearing any back-n-forth from these two, at least not from Wiz’ side. He is planning to just continue his hard work, as he gears up for the release of his Rolling Papers release on March 29.
